PÖYRY AWARDED EUR 11 MILLION COAL-FIRED POWER PLANT ENGINEERING ASSIGNMENT IN VIETNAM
Pöyry has been awarded an owner's engineering contract for the Vung Ang power plant project in Vietnam by Vietnam Machinery Erection Corporation (LILAMA). The contract value amounts to about EUR 11 million and it will be included in the order stock for the second quarter.
The project will be a 2 x 600 MW coal-fired power plant, located some 420 km south of Hanoi. Due to its size, location and technical sophistication, the Vung Ang project has been identified as a keystone in LILAMA's strategy as well as an important part in Vietnam's future energy generation capacity.
The Vung Ang power plant project is a key strategic milestone in Pöyry's activities in Southeast Asia. The assignment further consolidates Pöyry's position in the area and especially in the rapidly growing Vietnamese energy markets.
LILAMA is the leading plant erector in Vietnam with own manufacturing plants and some 20 000 employees. It is involved in Vietnam's major construction projects, comprising thermal and hydropower as well as oil and gas projects.
