The Water Doosan Vina Factory, a subsidiary of the RoK–invested Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam Co., Ltd, has exported five units of a seawater desalination evaporator to Chile as its first shipment of 2015.
The remaining units of the device will be shipped from now until end of April 2015.

When assembled and put into operation, the evaporator can produce 220 million liters of purified water a day for 550,000 people working at Escondida copper mine, which is located in the northern Atacama Desert of Chile, the world’s largest copper mine.

The Doosan Vina’s shipment was made as part of the Escondida Water Supply project signed with the Chilean side on February 19, 2014.-VNA
