FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately US$40m (approximately DKK200m) with state owned LILIAMA Vietnam Machinery Installation Corporation for the supply of a coal handling facility, including ship unloading and storage facilities with a capacity of 400,000t, for a coal-fired power plant owned by Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam).
The plant is located in the Ha Tinh province in Vietnam, approximately 400km south of Hanoi. The scope of the contract includes complete engineering, design and supply of all key components as well as supervision of erection and commissioning. Among the equipment is approximately 8km of conveyors.
"Vietnam is a well-known market to FLSmidth and we have delivered numerous material handling solutions to various industries in the country over the past decade. This contract therefore further strengthens FLSmidth’s presence and position in the region," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments. The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth’s earnings until commissioning in early 2013.
