Successful Installation of Boiler Main Girder of Vinh Tan 4 Power Plant - 

After nearly 15 months of construction, on June 17th, 2015, at the Vinh Tan Commune, Tuy Phong District, Binh Thuan Province, the consortium of Doosan Vina contractors held a ceremony to lift and place the "Heavy Girder" for Unit 1 of Vinh Tan 4.

The 1,200 MW thermal power plant is part of Vietnam's Vinh Tan Thermal Power Center complex in Vinh Tan Commune, Tuy Phong District, Binh Thuan Province. With this milestone, Vinh Tan 4 is now 30% complete.

Today's Heavy Lift for Unit I included a total of 188 tons of structural steel that was safely and successfully installed at an elevation of 79.8 meters to mark the end of this part of the project. The heaviest girder in today's lift weighed 57 tons.

The next phase of the process is the Wall-Furnace Panel Lift of the Pressure Parts for the boiler, which are the heart of all thermal power plants. The first Panel Lift is expected to take place in September of 2015 and Unit I is expected to be put in operation in December of 2017.

Starting construction on March 9th, 2014, Vinh Tan 4 Thermal Power Plant was the second power plant in the Vinh Tan Thermal Power Center to break ground.

Vinh Tan 4 Thermal Power project consists of two 600 MW units with a total generating capacity of 1,200 MW. Once completed, it will provide 7.3 billion kWh/year for the needs of Southern Vietnam. Total investment for the plant is over 36 trillion VND or $1.7 billion.
