Energy equipment exported to Japan
A shipment of equipment has been delivered from Dung Quất Economic Zone to the Sodegaura Biomass Power Plant – the largest capacity biomass firing plant in Japan, located in Chiba, Japan.
South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries Việt Nam (Doosan Vina) said the shipment of the fuel bed heat exchanger (FBHE) module, which left Dung Quất Port on Thursday, was part of the Sodegaura Biomass Power project that Doosan signed with Chiyoda Corporation (Japan) from 2018.
Doosan Vina said a total of 3,093 tonnes of boiler structural components and steel equipment has been shipped to the project, and the last shipment is expected in the first quarter of 2021.
The locally-made equipment will help the biomass power plant in Japan begin operations in 2022.
“This is the first time Doosan Vina manufactures and supplies products for biomass power plants using the Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) technology. This technology will help reduce carbon emissions and can burn biomass fuel including wood chips into clean and environmentally friendly power,” Director of Doosan Vina’s Boiler shop of Doosan Vina, Baek Ho Sik, said
“Doosan Vina is also focusing on manufacturing clean energy and renewable energy equipment, and waste-to-energy technology boilers to supply power plants near Kyoto, Japan. This waste-to-energy boiler equipment is expected to be shipped in 2021.”
Doosan Vina, which is a high-tech industrial complex in the central province with 2,000 Vietnamese workers, has earned US$2.4 billion from exports of mega infrastructure products and industrial equipment to the domestic and global market.
Last month, Doosan Vina also exported steel structures for the installation of a conveyor system at Onahama Port in Fukushima, Japan. — VNS
