QUẢNG NGÃI — Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) and Doosan Heavy Industries Việt Nam (Doosan Vina) – two subsidiaries of South Korea’s Doosan Group, began construction of the Nghi Sơn 2 Thermal Power Plant project in Thanh Hóa Province on Monday.
A source from Doosan Vina said the two firms will build two supercritical boilers, high efficiency turbines and generating units for the 1,330 megawatt (MW) Nghi Sơn 2 Power Plant, slated for completion in 2022.
The thermal power plant, invested in by a joint-venture of Marubeni of Japan and Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) with total investment US$2.79 billion, will supply power for 6.8 million households.
Earlier, Doosan received an advance payment of $170 million from Marubeni and KEPCO to commence construction of the two turbines and boilers.
Since 2012, DHIC has won more than $6 billion in orders in Việt Nam that include the contracts for the Mông Dương 2, Sông Hậu 1 and Vĩnh Tân 4 power plants.

Doosan Vina, based in Quảng Ngãi Province, provided rail mounted quay cranes and a high-tech pressure equipment for the Nghi Sơn Refinery & Petrochemical project in 2014-15.
It exported made-in-Việt Nam boilers, heat recovery steam generators and desalination, crane and chemical processing equipment valued at US$2.4 billion in 2017. — VNS
