ESC conducted a Biodiversity Assessment and Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the Kon Plong Wind Power Project in Vietnam.

About the Project

Levanta Renewables (Levanta) has obtained a survey license for wind research and a prospective project with exclusive rights within a 2,210ha site across the communes of Dak Long and Mang Canh, Kon Plong District, Kon Tum Province, Vietnam. 

The company contracted ESC to conduct a biodiversity assessment and to develop an ESIA for its 100MW Kon Plong Wind Power Project, situated within Kon Plong District, Kon Tum Province, Vietnam. ESC supported as well in developing the biodiversity preparation and assessment report as the basis of the ESIA.

Our Approach

ESC has helped to achieve the scope of work for this project which involved the following:

  • developed baseline study on biodiversity for a wind power project that includes reviewing the results of the first season birds and bats survey;
  • conducted potential habitat assessment (i.e., desktop and document review, aerial photograph level mapping) to define broader habitat types anticipated to occur across and adjoining the site. These data were utilized to define the methodology for the terrestrial fauna and flora baseline surveys. Potential species within the project area were described by providing an initial baseline for potential habitat assessment or the biodiversity assessment;
  • provided the biodiversity assessment of the surveyed flora/ fauna; and
  • established an initial Biodiversity Management Plan (BMP) as the basis of a further/ more comprehensive conservation plan.

Outcome

ESC has provided a biodiversity baseline for the ESIA so that it can be developed thoroughly by considering the existing biodiversity condition in the area. The BMP will also set a basis to the Client in their impact monitoring schedule and to their mitigation plan.

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
