The equipment took six months to design, fabricate and assemble at the factory in Dung Quat Economic Zone in the central province of Quang Ngai, the company said in a statement.
The 100 mm walls of the pressure vessel represent the thickest ever produced in the CPE shop and that material strength combined with its high-tech design makes it capable of withstanding and operating at pressures of up to 215kg/square centimeter.
The vessel weighs over 75 tons and is 17.9 meters long with an outside diameter of 1.8 m.
The vessel produces the high pressure steam required for the Tembusu Biomass Co-Firing Cogeneration Power plant in Singapore. The TBS Steam Drum project was signed between the Doosan E&C-Mecatec Business Group and Sumitomo Heavy Industries of Japan in 2010.
This is the second shipment of the year for Doosan Vina’s CPE unit and their schedule calls for another four projects to ship to ports in the Philippines, Australia and Vietnam.
