According to Mr. Richard Yue - Discrete Automation and Motion Division Manager “The response for this exhibition was fantastic. Even the first day itself we have received more than 180 new customer nquiries who are interested in our products and services. The power quality seminar as well as the package solution seminar also attracted a full house of participants to learn and share the experiences and issues they encountered in the end-user day to day operation. I think ABB has taken full advantage in creating market awareness in our power and automation products at this exhibition. ABB will continue to take part in such exhibition with our products and solution in the future”.

“We are pleased with the positive outcome of this combined event, and the support provided by the industry in general. We have seen many positive developments in the industry thus far as incoming FDI has resulted in a 10% power grid and supply expansion year on year. Demand for new technologies is up”. Expressed by Mr. Tee Boon Teong, Deputy Chief Representative, Allworld Alliances’ Representative Office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, organiser of Electric and Power Vietnam 2014 and Industrial Automation Vietnam 2014.

Coupled with the recently announced pro-business government policies in power generation, more opportunities will be available for international players in the years to come. The complimentary sector of Plant and Process Automation is also set to grow with more factories setting up in Vietnam, and with the expectant new refineries coming online – Nghi Son & Vung Ro, which will encourage the development of a new petrochemical sector as chemical feedstock from the refineries will then become locally available. This development requires new power generation capacities to be installed to support the energy intensive petrochemical industry”.

This event also is a platform for knowledge sharing, which brought together industry thought leaders to address pertinent issues and share best practices with professionals in the energy sector.Topics featured were “Energy Efficiency and Audit Compliance with ISO 50001:2011” and “Power and Plant Case Studies – An Experience from Singapore”. These two seminars were well attended with over 200 registered participants.

The next edition of Electric and Power Vietnam and Industrial Automation Vietnam will returnfrom September 14th to 16th, 2016 at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center in Ho ChiMinh City.
