In 2020, the Tri An Extended Hydropower Plant Project agreed to implement BIM technology to its operations, upon being chosen as a BIM pilot project with the UK Global Infrastructure Programme. The project is intended to prove the effectiveness of BIM, which is expected to be widely implemented throughout the largest power company in the country, Vietnam Electricity.
Vietnam began to use BIM for building and operating facilities in 2016. Through BIM, the government will save on construction costs and time while enhancing transparency and collaboration. Since 2018, at least 20 new state construction projects have applied BIM to their processes and following their review, guidance on universal use of BIM in construction will be introduced.
