QUANG NGAI (Biz Hub) — Two 300 megawatt (MW) heat recovery steam generators have been delivered to the Salem harbour combined-cycle gas turbine power plant in the American state of Massachusetts.

Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) said yesterday the made-in-Viet Nam 2,100-tonne cargo of components would be installed at the natural gas-fired Salem harbour power station, 30km from Boston in Massachusetts, with a total capacity of 674 MW.

"This is our first-ever product that has been shipped to the United States and it marks a new milestone for us," Nguyen Tan Hong from Doosan Vina said.

"Made-in-Viet Nam heavy industry products are now being used in 27 countries around the world and that figure will be going up soon," he said.

An agreement had been signed in 2013 to supply two heat recovery steam generators for the Salem harbour combined-cycle gas turbine power plant project, which will increase the plant's efficiency by up to 30 per cent, reducing 450,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year as well as supplying electricity to 600,000 homes.

As scheduled, the second and final shipment will be delivered in Massachusetts later this month.

Doosan Vina, a hi-tech industrial complex in the Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai, exported goods worth US$200 million last year, including boilers, heat recovery steam generators, desalination plants and cranes, besides chemical processing equipment. — VNS
