Through the Embassy of Sweden in Hanoi, leader in power and automation technologies, ABB Vietnam, has extended a helping hand to the Vietnam – Sweden Hospital in Uong Bi by repairing and replacing the hospital’s on-load tap-chargers (OLTC).
Early this year, through the Swedish Embassy in Hanoi, ABB found that the hospital needed its expertise in testing, consulting and overhauling two OLTCs for the hospital’s 1250kVA transformers that didn’t work.
As a foreign invested company having one of its headquarters in Sweden, ABB management in Vietnam decided to sponsor the entire technical solution and replacement service, in the spirit of contributing to the community, with the OLTC provided by the Swedish Embassy.
The hospital situated in the Quang Ninh province had been an official aid project funded by the Swedish Government, through the embassy.
Deputy Director of the hospital, Dr. Le Duc Diep, highly appreciated all the support that has been given to them by the Swedish side.
“The help offered by the Swedish Government and the Embassy of Sweden is a meaningful gift for the Vietnamese people in general, and particularly the Quang Ninh people,” he said.
“The kind-hearted support does not only help Quang Ninh people enjoy advanced medical services since the 1980s, but also brings a lot of chances to our medical personnel in their professional development, skill improvement and knowledge achievement to reach advanced level in the world,” he added.
He also expressed his sincere gratitude to the ABB Group for the installations and repairs of the transformers.
“We also highly appreciate and sincerely thank ABB for supporting us in surveillance, installation and repairs of the transformer helping stabilise the hospital’s power grid so that we can provide better service to local people,” he said.
Technical Manager of the hospital Mr. Nguyen Viet Ha also added in an appreciation to the Swedish Government for helping the people in Quang Ninh and in the surrounding areas.
“The people have benefited from a high quality construction project with good facilities and excellent infrastructure. It helps serve patients more conveniently and effectively,” he said.
He also added that they will try to maintain and develop the hospital, in return to the support of the Swedish Government, the Embassy of Sweden and helpful sponsors like ABB.
