A keson is an innovation or process that can be implemented to improve safety, save time improve quality or reduce costs. Doosan Vina’s header fabrication team 3’s keson was selected as the best from 686 kesons produced by the company’s employees in 2016.  As a result of their outstanding performance at the local level, they were chosen to represent Doosan Vina and Vietnam in this annual competition in Korea. They joined teams from eight of Doosan’s global subsidiaries who also brought their kesons to DHIC’s headquarter in Changwon, South Korea where a panel of engineers and experts judged the entries. 

Doosan Vina’s keson theme at this year’s competition was “fabrication standardisation,” which was responsible for raising production quality for specialised boiler equipment to an ultrasonic testing rate of 99.6 per cent perfect. Their keson was also credited with saving 30 days in the fabrication process and for creating a safer working environment.

Ho Duy Linh, chief worker of boiler and as one of team members attending the competition in Korea said: “It’s a real honor for me, Doosan Vina and Vietnam to receive the second place award in this worldwide competition. All the entries were fantastic and the competition was very tough. This award shows that Vietnamese skills are world class and the employees at Doosan Vina are among the world’s best.”

This is the second time Doosan Vina has been among the best at the keson contest. In 2013, Doosan Vina was declared the world champion at the annual competition and was awarded the first place award and was greeted with a parade and party upon their return to the company for their outstanding performance.
