Auma extends Vietnam power base

A recent contract gain for Auma actuators in Vietnam has extended application of its products to include the Uong Bi Power plant. Existing sites for the company’s actuation solutions in the region include the combined power plants at Phu My, Ba Ria and Cao Ngan. The tender win for the company to supply more than 300 actuators for an extension of the Uong Bi plant was attributed to the proven quality and reliability of the Auma Norm actuator range. Modular design with integral controls was another important selection criterion as this facilitates upgrades as required to meet the plant’s changing requirements. Uong Bi Power Plant is located in the Quang Ninh province, 150km east of Hanoi. This turn-key project is an extension of an existing 110MW power plant. The 300MW facility, built by LILAMA (Vietnam Machinery Erection Co.), is operated with anthracite coal from VINACOAL. Boilers and turbines are supplied by the Russian power machines group.
