The agreement is a significant step towards developing Vietnam’s first net zero industrial parks and mobilizes provincial action plans to support national decarbonization goals.
Houston, TX, August 16, 2023 – At a conference on the Master Plan Announcement and Investment Promotion of Long An Province, Vietnam, Energy Capital Vietnam (ECV), SaigonTel (HOSE: SGT), Allotrope Partners LLC, Chart Industries, Inc. (NYSE: GTLS), and Babcock & Wilcox (NYSE: BW) signed a cooperation agreement to develop Vietnam’s first net zero industrial parks and advance its national carbon emissions goals.
Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính delivered remarks during the conference, which was also attended by former President Trương Tấn Sang and other past members of the Politburo, as well as current government officials and industry leaders.
Under the agreement, the partners will focus on developing and implementing net zero strategies at SaigonTel’s Tan Tap and Nam Tan Tap Industrial Parks. This will also serve as a foundation for developing a broader provincial roadmap for Long An to reach net zero emissions by 2050.
“ECV is proud to join this powerful decarbonization consortium that will contribute to Vietnam’s national net zero goals while preserving economic growth through energy security,” said David Lewis, Chairman and CEO of Energy Capital Vietnam. “We are truly honored to work with Marc Stuart and the Allotrope team to develop pragmatic pathways to decarbonize industrial parks and provincial master plans. Long An Province will be at the forefront of low and no-carbon manufacturing facilities in Vietnam.”
Marc Stuart, Founder and CEO of Allotrope Partners, said, “I was impressed by the caliber of the conversations regarding decarbonization at the event. They were among the most sophisticated and nuanced I’ve had in 30 years in the field. We’re excited to partner with this incredible group of leaders to take this step for meaningful decarbonization in one of the most productive industrial baskets in the world. Thanks to SaigonTel and the Energy Capital Vietnam team for tireless work bringing all the pieces together.”
Lewis continued: “One of ECV’s three focus areas is climate and the environment. Working with the experts at Allotrope Partners and a blue-chip company like SaigonTel enables us to bring this model to additional provinces and demonstrates our commitment to core values and delivering practical energy solutions in Vietnam.”
