Vietnamese made power equipment shipped to the United States

Vietnamese made power equipment shipped to the United States - 

Doosan Vina recently sent 2,100 tons of components for two 300 MW Heat Recovery Steam Generators to the Salem Harbour Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plant in the US state of Massachusetts.

“This is our first ever products to go to the United States of America and it marks a new milestone for us. Our products are now present and hard at work in 27 countries around the world and that figure will be going up soon”, said Nguyen Tan Hong, HRSG Production Department Leader.

The Salem Harbour Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plant project was signed in December 2013 to supply two Heat Recovery Steam Generators that will increase the efficiency of the plant by up to 30%.

The total weight of the two units is 4,200 tons and took 179 skilled workers in Doosan Vina’s HRSG shop five months to manufacture.

The first shipment included ten modules weighing 2,100 tons that were shipped from Doosan Vina’s dedicated and purposed built port in Central Vietnam’s Quang Ngai Province. The biggest module in the shipment was 30 meters long, 4.4 meters wide and 6 meters high.

The second and final shipment for the project is scheduled for September.

The natural gas-fired Salem Harbour Power Station is located 30km from Boston, Massachusetts and will have an installed capacity of 674 MW. Commissioning activities are expected in 2016 and steam production is scheduled for early 2017. It is projected to supply electricity to 600,000 homes, fill the power gap in the region and offset approximately 450,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
