In order to facilitate the domestic mechanical business gradually improve and eventually master the design technology and manufacture equipment for thermal power plants and promote the development of the engineering industry, Prime Minister has issued Decision No. 1791/QD-TTg on design pilot mechanism, manufacturing equipment for thermal power plants in the period of 2012-2025.
According to this decision, the government allows pilot design, local manufacturing subsystems (including all devices in sync with the main equipment of boiler, turbine and generator) in 03 power plant projects: Quang Trach 1, Song Hau 1 and Quynh Lap 1. The objective is the value rate of consulting, designs, manufacturing and engineering services as well as the proportion of the value of equipment manufacturing domestically gradually increase, reaching respectively 80% and 70% or more.
This decision also issued implementation mechanism; the list of associated equipment of thermal power plants which are designed and manufactured domestically; list of consultants; the list of domestic manufacturers participating in this mechanism.
To implement this pilot mechanism, the Ministry of Industry and Trade issued Circular No. 23/2014/TT-BCT specified formulation, appraisal and approval of design and manufacturing contracts for thermal power plants. At the same time, the tender and contract procedure has been published in Decision No. 7810/QD-BCT. Accordingly, the General Department of Energy is the main organization that reviewed and approved procurement and contract.
With necessary mechanisms & procedures, the Ministry of Industry and Trade expects the pilot project to build power plants will develop presently, to promote development of domestic engineering industry, step by step to meet the requirements of industrialization and modernization of the country.
