Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) announced on 22 September that it had held the construction completion ceremony for the Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant ordered by Electricity of Vietnam (EVN).
Held in Binh Thuan province on 21 September, the ceremony was attended by Vietnamese Deputy PM Truong Hoa Binh, EVN Chairman Duong Quang Thanh and CEO of DHIC plant EPC BG Inwon Park.
The Vinh Tan 4 thermal power plant has been built in Binh Thuan province, about 230 km east of Ho Chi Minh City, to resolve the power shortage in Southern Vietnam. DHIC received the turnkey project to construct the 1200 MW power plant for about KRW 1.6 trillion in 2013, and has been responsible for the entire EPC process from design and equipment manufacturing to installation and commissioning.
“Since the construction of the Mong Duong II coal-fired power plant in 2010, DHIC has been recognised for its know-how in Vietnam, receiving eight projects in total. We plan to broaden our presence in the Vietnamese power generation market, which is expected to expand its power generation capacity to 136 GW by 2030,” said Inwon Park, CEO of the DHIC Plant EPC BG.
