Balanced Engineering & Construction

Milestone Achieved – Quang Trach 1 Power Plant


In 2012, BEC made a significant entry into the Vietnamese market by securing a project at the Mong Duong II 2 x 550MW Power Plant. At that time, we assembled a dynamic and ambitious Vietnamese project team, and it’s gratifying to note that the senior members of that team remain integral to BEC to this day. Together, we successfully executed and delivered our inaugural project.
Since our inception in Vietnam, our achievements have been noteworthy. We’ve completed two additional design and build projects, each exceeding a height of 200 meters. Additionally, we have expanded our footprint beyond Vietnam by delivering fabricated steel flues to Sihanoukville, Cambodia. Our portfolio also includes maintenance projects, including the comprehensive reconstruction of the upper section of an existing steel stack.
Today, we are delighted to announce a significant milestone in our latest endeavour—the Quang Trach 1 Power Plant windshield achieved a remarkable 50% slipform completion. Our construction team reached an impressive height of 114.20 meters, marking the halfway point towards the total windshield height of 224.50 meters. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the dedicated team working tirelessly, 24/7, especially amidst challenging weather conditions during this season.

Noteworthy Accomplishments:

Timely Foundation Completion: The foundation, boasting an extensive volume of 3,850m³, was successfully executed in a single casting within a 24-hour timeframe. This substantial concrete pour demanded meticulous planning to guarantee an uninterrupted concrete supply and effective control of the heat of hydration.
Exemplary Safety Record: We take pride in maintaining an impeccable safety record, with zero workplace incidents recorded to date. This underscores our unwavering commitment to prioritising the safety and well-being of our workforce.
Strategic Planning: The design has been finalised, and all essential materials for the project have been ordered, poised for delivery as needed. Furthermore, the fabrication process for the steelwork is already underway, demonstrating our proactive approach to project management.
The Quang Trach 1 Power Plant is a key component of Vietnam’s ambitious energy development strategy to meet the rising demand for electricity while adhering to strict environmental standards. The design and construction of a cutting-edge 229.50m structure is crucial for effective emissions control and compliance with international environmental regulations.
