Quang Ngai-based Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) kicked off the new year by exporting petrochemical equipment to Thailand for the first time.

Doosan Vina said the shipment of 2,195 tonnes of raw fuel heating support equipment under the TOP Fired Heater project for South Korea JNK Heaters came after more than a year of production at the Dung Quat Economic Zone in the central province of Quang Ngai.

It’s also the first shipment of locally manufactured equipment of Doosan Vina.

The equipment will be used for raw fuel heating at Sriracha refinery, one of Thailand's main oil refineries with a capacity of 400,000 barrels per day located in Chonburi Province, along the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand.

Doosan Vina said it’s also the second out of four shipments of the project that was signed with South Korea JNK company from 2019, and the remaining two shipments are expected to be made in February 2021.

“The Fired Heater used in the processing of petrochemical products is a new product and is produced at Doosan Vina for overseas for the first time, so we encountered many difficulties because the customer’s technical requirements were very strict while the delivery time was short. Therefore, we have had to make efforts and implemented a series of innovations and also worked closely with the customer to ensure product quality and managed the project progress as required,” leader of Doosan Vina’s Boiler shop Production Engineering Department, Nguyen Ngoc Nhuoc said.

Last year, Doosan Vina sent 1,004 shipments with more than 52,000 tons of boiler equipment, seaport cranes, steel structures, modules, pipes and other products to nine countries around the world. These were impressive figures in the context of the global economy being adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. — VNS
