Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam (Doosan Vina) announced on March 15 that Vietnamese technicians recently won a global industrial competition in the Republic of Korea.

The victory at the Doosan-wide Keson Contest illustrated the exceptional creativity of Vietnamese workers, said chief worker Phan Thanh Phat, who is the head of the 12-member Panel Fabrication One Team of the Boiler Division, which represented Doosan Vina at the competition.

According to the winner, it was remarkable that in three years Doosan Vina’s innovation is comparable to that of its parent company’s 30-year history.

The winning Vietnamese entries were a chamfering tool and mini crane that the team created to help overcome some production issues in the manufacture of its high-tech boilers, which are the heart of a modern power plant, said Phat.

The innovations saved nearly 2,000 work-hours and 1,000 hours of crane time on the MD II boiler that is being fabricated by Doosan Vina. They will continue to save the company time on all future boiler projects, he added. The competition involved entries from Doosan Heavy Industries’ seven production sites worldwide.-VNA
