QUANG NGAI (Biz Hub) — Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam Company has shipped the last of four massive 4,500-tonne plug-n-play multistage flash desalination evaporators to the Yanbu Phase III seawater desalination project in Saudi Arabia.

This is the eighth desalination plant that Doosan Vina has completed since it started production in 2009.

Ryu Hang Ha, Senior Vice President of Doosan Heavy Industries Korean and CEO of Doosan Vina, said, "The Yanbu Phase III contract for four desalination units was signed in March 2013. We mark the completion and shipment of these ‘Made-in-Viet Nam' products from our Quang Ngai complex."

The four salt water filtering systems are expected to produce a total of 380 million litres of clean water per day, meeting the demand of more than one million Saudi Arabians. Nearly all the workers who implemented the project, with a total capital of US$1.47 billion, were Vietnamese. — VNS
