Doosan Vina’s Boiler Shop yesterday shipped 354 tonnes of high tech boiler components to the Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant in Binh Thuan province. This shipment is also the first for Doosan Vina of the year.

The shipment had a total weight of 354 tonnes and included coils, panels and headers.  This is the 12th of 17 planned shipments that will be required to send the nearly 35,550 tonnes of “Made in Vietnam” power plant equipment to the Vinh Tan 4 project.  

All the boiler manufacturing for the power plant is being carried out in Vietnam by Vietnamese.  Nearly 2,500 skilled Vietnamese engineers and technicians at Doosan Vina’s state-of-the–art heavy industrial complex in central province of Quang Ngai have been working on the project.  The final shipment is due to take place at the end of June, right on schedule.

“With this first shipment of 2016, the Year of the Monkey is off to a great start, I want to thank and congratulate all the employees of the Boiler Shop who have worked so hard to meet the deadlines and deliver the product on time, they also deserve high praise for their excellence in workmanship that has produced a high quality product that was made by Vietnamese in support of the country’s industrialisation goals,” Kim Yong Soo, deputy general director of Doosan Vina said.

The Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant broke ground on March 9, 2014 and is a project of Electricity of Vietnam (EVN). The project consortium includes EVN and Power Generation Corporation 3, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Mitsubishi Corporation, Pacific Corporation and Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company 2.

The project consists of two 600MW units, for a total installed capacity of 1,200MW. The annual power output is expected to be about 7.2 billion kWh. The total investment for the project is over $1.7 billion.
