CTE Wind Vietnam, with the brand name CTV Wind, was foundet in 2006. CTV Wind has a wide experience on large scale projects for wind power plants in Vietnam but also in other parts of Asia. Specialized engineering and consultancy company on foundation for wind turbines, CTV services include civil engineering works of civil infrastructures, geotechnics, wind power master plants, roads, local drainage systems and foundation designs especially for onshore and nearshore projects. CTV Wind has an in-depth local knowledge about local materials, local culture and local supplier chains. With their local network CTV is abble to create inventive engineering values for all wind power projects in Asia.

CTV is part of the civil engineering network CTE Wind International which is in the wind energy business since 2003. Together we have cumulated a strong track record of over 17.000 wind turbines (2019) with its excellence in foundation designs, geotech consulting and local interventions. CTE Wind International is part of the group CTE, a structural engineering consulting firm specialized in building and civil engineering. The CTE Group was founded in 1965 and today is one of the leaders of the sector.

In Vietnam CTV Wind realized over 80% of all wind farms on Vietnamese soil with more than 25 projects onshore and nearshore : Tuy Phong,  Phu Lac (24 MW), Dam Nai phase 1 and 2 (40MW), Huong Linh, Tay Nguyen, Ben Tre, B&T (225 MW) to name a few.
