FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately USD 40m (approximately DKK 200m) with state owned LILIAMA Vietnam Machinery Installation Corporation for the supply of a coal handling facility, including ship unloading and storage facilities with a capacity of 400,000 tons, for a coal-fired power plant owned by Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam). The plant is located in the Ha Tinh province in Vietnam, approximately 400 km south of Hanoi.

The scope of the contract includes complete engineering, design and supply of all key components as well as supervision of erection and commissioning. Among the equipment is approximately 8 km of conveyors.
