The 12 modules are part of the Waste Heat Recovery Project (WHRP) signed by Doosan Vina and Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. (SECL) in October 2018 and the 10-year co-operation framework agreement inked in June 2018.

These giant modules were intensively fabricated and assembled by the MHS and Water shops of Doosan Vina with collaboration from 10 sub-contractors over a timespan of more than six months.

“Doosan Vina manufactured this type of product for the first time so we initially faced many difficulties. The first was the short delivery schedule, the second our lack of experience in production, and the third the strict requirements of the customer,” said Young Sang Yoon, Erection Department leader of the MHS shop, adding, “However, with careful preparation, tight tracking at every stage, plus the heroic efforts of the skilled workers as well as close supervision and support from SECL, we completed the project on schedule and met the quality requirements.”

The successful completion of the first order for Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. is a special point of pride for Doosan Vina in general and the MHS and Water shops’ employees in particular.

Among the 12 modules exported on September 9, the biggest module is 32.75m long, over 12m wide, and 27.7m high while the smallest module has the dimensions of 31x6.5x11.7m.

To ensure safety and the technical parameters of the equipment, all parameters of the transportation and loading of these 1,746-tonne modules on the reinforced decks of the ships were carefully calculated by Doosan Vina’s experts and were submitted to SECL for approval before execution.

Because of their heavy weight and extraordinary size, the experts had to use self-propelled modular transporters (SPMT) and assigned 20 employees to do the work in five days.

The successful completion of the first order for Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. is a special point of pride for Doosan Vina in general and the MHS and Water shops’ employees in particular. It attests to the technical qualification of Vietnamese workers and also enhances the company's prestige among international partners in teh field of manufacturing modules for petrochemical refineries.
