South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Co., Ltd. signed an agreement today to rent land in Quang Ngai province’s Dung Quat industrial zone to build a heavy industry and construction complex.
|Dung Quoc Economic Zone|
The US$240-million project is divided into two main factory projects: Doosan – ViNa and Doosan Mecatec Viet Nam, both located in the central Viet Nam industrial zone.
The two factories will help construct energy plants (nuclear, thermo-electricity and hydro-electricity), sea water refining plants, environmental equipment and heat radiators, as well as performing steel refining and casting, loading and lifting equipment.
|Located in Central Viet Nam, Dung Quat is 860 km equally from Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City, adjacent to National Road No.1A, the north-south railway. This is also the starting point of one of the Trans-Asian land routes crossing Laos, Thailand, Cambodia.|
Dung Quat is designated by the Vietnamese Government to be the first national oil refining & petrochemical complex and the planned zone for large-scale plants and heavy industries. Dung Quat is the driving force of a development strategy strengthening the Key Economic Area of Central Viet Nam - the prospective third largest economic centre of the nation.
