The deal inked with a local state-run power company calls for Doosan Heavy to build additional facilities at a coal-fired thermal power plant being constructed in Binh Thuan, 230 kilometers east of Ho Chi Minh City, the company said.
Doosan Heavy has been building the plant since 2013, and the latest contract is to add main and other auxiliary facilities to it. Their construction is scheduled to be completed by February 2020.
Doosan Heavy has clinched about 7 trillion won worth of projects in Vietnam since 2010, when it secured a 1.4 trillion-won deal to build a power plant in Quang Ninh, 160 kilometers northeast of Hanoi.
