Mong Duong II reaches 25 percent completion

Doosan heavy Industries Vietnam, announced that coal-fired Mong Duong II pushed past the 25% completion mark recently. A company spokesperson said “The $1.3 billion USD project is on schedule and on track.” Doosan Vina is the EPC contractor for the project which is to start generating power for Vietnam’s growth and development in December 2014.

The project is being carried out under an EPC contract between Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam and AES (NYSE:AES). AES signed the Build Operate Transfer agreement with Vietnam on April 22nd, 2010.

This power plant will be the first to have the major components, including a boiler, which is the heart of a thermal power plant, that was completely “Made in Vietnam” by skilled Vietnamese craftsmen. The MD II boilers will produce the steam to drive the turbines that will generate the electricity so urgently needed to continue Vietnam’s planned development.

The Boilers designed, engineered and fabricated in Doosan Vina’s high tech, 2,500 employee strong complex in Central Vietnam’s Dung Quat Economic Zone are making history by developing Vietnam’s domestic expertise in power plant technology.

Vietnam’s central government is focusing on the rapid development of this key industry to end foreign dependence to build power plants and also to provide an industry that can become a global player, exporting high tech boilers to other nations worldwide.

Upon completion MD II, Units 1 and 2 will add a total of 1,200 Megawatts of power to Vietnam’s power grid. Unit one is scheduled for completion in December of 2014 and unit two is planned to be operational six months later in June of 2015.
