Babcock & Wilcox in $182 mln Vietnam boiler deal |

HANOI, June 19 (Reuters) - McDermott International Inc's (MDR.N) Babcock & Wilcox Co (B&W) has won a $182 million contract to supply a boiler system to a thermal power plant in central Vietnam, the Vietnamese plant builder said on Friday.

Under the contract signed with state-run Lilama on Thursday, B&W would supply the boiler, supervise its installation and conduct test runs at the 1,200-megawatt Vung Ang 1 coal-fired power plant in Ha Tinh province, Lilama said in a statement.

In April, Lilama signed a contract with state oil monopoly Petrovietnam, the owner of the plant, to build the facility over 45 months. (Reporting by Ho Binh Minh; Editing by Alan Raybou
