Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam (Doosan Vina) Completed An Order for Three Large Scale Multi-Stage Desalination Plants for Ras Al Khair in Saudi Arabia
It was announced on Thursday that Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam (Doosan Vina) Completed An Order for Three Large Scale Multi-Stage Desalination Plants for Ras Al Khair in Saudi Arabia, which is the world’s largest desalination project to date with a total designed output of 728 million liters of fresh water per day.
The entire US$1.46 billion project entailed the design and manufacture of eight gigantic desalination units. Three of the units were built at Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam while the other five were built at Doosan Korea.
Each of the eight desalination units can produce 91 million liters of fresh water per day, stands three stories tall, has a footprint nearly the size of a football pitch and weighs almost 3,500 tons, according to a statement of the company.
With these three “Made-in-Vietnam” evaporator shipments, one in early January and two more in late February, the company’s Water Division has shipped over 12,000 tons so far this year, setting a new record for the division.
As this shipment completes, Doosan Vina’s Water Division has already begun preparation for their next project which is for Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.
