Vietnam: Desalination Equipment Doosan Vina Completes Two Heavy Industrial Product Orders
Doosan Vina has shipped 15 modules weighing 2,508 tonnes to the Ruwais Refinery in Abu Dhabi and three equipment weighing 2,040 tonnes which will be used in the process of filtering seawater in the kingdom of Bahrain.
Vietnam – In only less than half a month, Doosan Vina in Quang Ngai Province has shipped two heavy industrial product projects overseas with a total weight of 4,548 tonnes. The first shipment consisted of 15 modules weighing 2,508 tonnes to the Ruwais Refinery in Abu Dhabi on March 21, 2020 and the second one consisted of three equipment used in the process of filtering seawater weighing 2,040 tonnes to the kingdom of Bahrain on April 3, 2020.
The three exported equipment were the Evaporator, Final-Effect and Seawater Heater under the Bapco MED project which was signed between Doosan Vina and Samsung Engineering Construction in October 2018. The equipment will be responsible for heating and turning seawater into distilled water at the Bapco Refinery in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
With a heavy weight and size (32 m long, 18 m high, 18 m wide and 654 tonnes heavy), it took experts 10 days to load the equipment onboard the vessel with the assistance of the Self-propelled Modular Transporters.
“Due to the quite heavy workload, apart from our 150 employees, we had to hire 50 workers from three subcontractors including OGS, Insu and Thaco to ensure the project's production schedule. The project is now completed after 12 months of implementation”, Do Quoc Vuong, Acting Director of Doosan Vina's Water shop said.
The completion of these two big orders in the recent Covid-19 epidemic situation is considered a great success of Doosan Vina. It has also contributed to increasing the export turnover of the Quang Ngai province in these fluctuation months of the year.
“At present, we have both stepped up against the Covid-19 epidemic and implemented solutions to boost our production and export. These are our two urgent missions. We have to increase manpower to fulfill 29 domestic and abroad projects with a total of nearly 50,000 tonnes this year. In addition to the existing shop floors, we have expanded our areas of workshop, erection and packing to meet the company’s production needs”, Kim Kibum, Director of Doosan Vina's Strategy Division shared.
The completion of these big orders once again proves the high competence and technical skills of Vietnamese employees. To date, ‘Made in Vietnam’ products by Doosan Vina have shown significant presence and are operating in 35 countries around the world.
