Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam (Doosan Vina) shipped a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG), one of the core components of a combined thermal power plant weighing 2,100 tonnes, to the United States on September 9, said Deputy General Director Kim Yong Soo.

The 300-megawatt HRSG was provided to the Salem Harbour Combined-Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plant in Massachusetts to increase the plant’s power capacity by up to 30 percent.

The HRSG is designated to generate power from high-temperature exhaust gas streams from the plant’s gas turbine. It is considered an eco-friendly system that helps reduce harmful gas emissions.

Doosan Vina inked a contract to provide two HRSGs for the Salem Harbour Power Plant in December 2013 with the last shipment to be sent at the end of this September.

It is the first made-in-Vietnam HRSG exported to the US, marking a significant milestone for the firm, Nguyen Tan Hong, Head of the HRSG manufacturing division in Doosan Vina, said.

Doosan Vina’s products have made their way to 27 countries worldwide, he added, hoping that they will be available in more countries soon.

Located at Dung Quat Industrial Complex in central Quang Ngai province, Doosan Vina is one of the largest overseas manufacturing factories established through joint investment from the Republic of Korea-based Doosan Heavy Industry and Doosan Engineering and Construction.-VNA
