Babcock & Wilcox Beijing Company (BWBC) has secured a $300m subcontract from Daelim Industrial Company to supply equipment for PetroVietnam’s 1,200MW Thai Binh II power plant which is being built in Vietnam.

South Korea based engineering and construction firm Daelim Industrial Company is the lead contractor of the project.

Under the terms of the contract, BWBC will design and manufacture two 600MW boilers, boiler auxiliaries and two wet flue gas desulfurization units for the coal-fired power plant.

BWBC is an unconsolidated Chinese joint venture of The Babcock & Wilcox Company, within its Power Generation segment.

Zhejiang Tiandi Environmental Protection Engineering Company, a licensee of B&W, will supply both wet FGD units for the project.

BWBC general manager Paul Li said, "We look forward to delivering reliable equipment using B&W’s technology and doing our part to make the Thai Binh project a success."

BWBC is currently engineering the equipment at its facility in Beijing, China; the two units are expected to be completed and in operation in 2016.

US based B&W designs, engineers, manufactures, constructs and provides facilities management services to nuclear, renewable, fossil power, industrial and government customers.

PetroVietnam is a state owned oil and gas company.
