Coal power station work
Black & Veatch won a contract to design and manage construction of the Long Phu 1 Thermal Power Plant, a proposed "high efficiency" 1,200 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station which has been proposed by Hanoi-based PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation (PTSC), a subsidiary of energy provider PetroVietnam Group. The Long Phu 1 Thermal Power Plant will be the first of three facilities located at the planned 4,400MW Long Phu Power Centre. The plant’s two units are planned to use supercritical boiler technology and scrubbers. The plant is slated to be completed by 2014, at a cost between US$1.2 and US$1.4 billion.
