HCM CITY — More than 180 exhibitors from 22 countries and territories will display their latest products and services at the Electric & Power Vietnam, an international power generation, transmission, distribution and renewable energy exhibition, in HCM City next month.
The seventh edition of the biennial exhibition will also feature six international group pavilions of India, Germany, Taiwan, South Korea, Turkey, and mainland China, BT Tee, general manager of UBM VES, the exhibition organiser, said.
It will showcase a wide range of advanced power engineering technologies, monitoring and measuring equipment, renewable energy technologies, energy storage saving solutions, production and process automation systems, SCADA, electrical distribution and transmission equipment, power station hardware and equipment and others.
Participating will be well-known names such as 3M, Aksa Power Generation, Ablerex Electronics, Motwane, Fuji CAC, Haintec, Legnano Teknoelectric, Rittal LLC, Trinity Touch, and Sông La Technical Equipment Co., Ltd.
Held alongside will be Renewable Energy Vietnam, an expo showcasing optimal solar energy solutions from popular brands like Chinaland Solar Energy, Mibet Energy, Goodwe, Toshiba, HT Solar, and Vietnam Sunenergy (VSUN).
Many conferences and seminars will also be held on the sidelines of the exhibitions, including one on “Solutions to Encourage and Develop Renewable Energy in Việt Nam.”
Tee said Việt Nam’s electricity demand is expected to grow at 10-12 per cent annually through 2020 as industrial and residential use increases.
The high growth rate is putting pressure on the power infrastructure, he said.
As demand increases and as the electricity grid expands, there is a pressing need to improve distribution efficiency through better grid management technologies (smart grid) and hardware, he said.
To be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre from September 12 to 14, the exhibitions are expected to attract 5,000 professional visitors.
Since its launch in 2006 Electric and Power Vietnam has gradually expanded to become Việt Nam’s most important electric power trade event. — VNS
