A shipment of three pieces of made-in-Viet Nam equipment used to filter seawater has been shipped to Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco)’s Refinery plant in Bahrain.

Quang Ngai-based Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam said the three exported items – the Evaporator, Final-Effect and Seawater Heater – were loaded at Dung Quat Port in the Dung Quat Economic Zone on Thursday for shipping.

The equipment, manufactured by Doosan Vina, was produced under an agreement signed between Doosan Vina and Samsung Engineering Construction in 2018.

The equipment will be used for heating and turning seawater into distilled water at the Bapco refinery in Bahrain.

South Korean and Vietnamese workers took 10 days to load this equipment on the vessel board.

It’s the second shipment of cargo in two weeks Doosan Vina has exported to heavy industrial production projects overseas amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first shipment was exported to the Ruwais Refinery in Abu Dhabi, the United of Arab Emirates on March 21.

“Due to the quite heavy workload, apart from our 150 employees, we had to hire 50 workers from three subcontractors including Oil and Gas Service company, the Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company of Connecticut Korea branch (INSU) and Truong Hai (THACO) company to ensure the project's production schedule.

"The project is now completed after 12 months of implementation,” Acting Director of Doosan Vina's Water shop, Do Quoc Vuong said.

The completion of the large orders amid the pandemic is considered a great success of Doosan Vina.

"We have both stepped up our measures against the COVID-19 epidemic and implemented solutions to boost our production and export.

"These are our two urgent missions. We have to increase manpower to fulfil 29 domestic and abroad projects with a total of nearly 50,000 tonnes this year.

"In addition to the existing shop floors, we have expanded our areas of workshop, erection and packing to meet the company’s production needs,” Kim Kibum, Director of Doosan Vina's Strategy Division, shared.

To date, made-in-Viet Nam products by Doosan Vina have been operated in 35 countries around the world.

Doosan Vina is a high-tech industrial complex in the Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai Province, employing 2,000 Vietnamese workers.

It produces mega infrastructure products including boilers, desalination plants, cranes, structural steel, buildings and infrastructure developments. To date, the company has exported products valued at US$2.4 billion. — VNS
