On the morning of 19th January 2018 at Hanoi, on the framework of the Project “Promotion of energy efficiency industrial boiler adoption and operating practices in Vietnam”, sponsored by UNIDO and hosted by Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT), Project Management Unit (PMU) collaborated with Green Development Center (Green.DC) to organize Consultation Meeting on Industrial boiler database system in order to obtain feedbacks and comments for draft of boiler database system and initial survey result report.
The purpose of developing boiler database is to assist the assessment and consideration of appropriate industrial boiler regulation and standards; provide database about boiler in industrial sectors and help boiler manufacturer capture the boiler market situation domestically for future development strategies.
Database has been designed with many information layers, users can access data on frequency and relative comparison, it is suitable for not only the demand of state management units but also for researchers, boiler manufacturers and users. Specifically, the general information layers will present the total number of boiler, design capacity, boiler using sectors, total energy and fuel consumption annually… Detail information layer will show number and percentage of boiler according to boiler type, manufacturer, installation year, industrial sector, regions, origin, longevity, type of fuel…
Report at the Seminar, Consultant unit – Green.DC illustrates that there are nearly 1000 enterprises have been surveyed and collected information from nationwide. Some basic information can be accessed easily based on the first input information that was collected from surveyed enterprises, for example:
- Total GHG emission equivalent to CO2: 19.560.156 ton/year; total energy consumption equivalent to TOE: 4.477.322 ton/year (counting for 2016)
- Number of boiler according to type of fuel: coal: 496; DO and FO: 334; Biomass: 305; LPG, natural and CNG gas: 255; others: 16.
Speaking at the seminar, delegates said that, in the past year, in line with economic development, the production and adoption of boiler in industrial sector has been growth. However, there are no comprehensive statistic on the current status of boiler in the industrial sector in Vietnam, therefore, the development of industrial boiler database system is very important and necessary. Delegates also proposed that the survey must be continued to add more number of industrial enterprises using boiler in Vietnam, proceeding to develop a national database of industrial boiler.
According to the plan, the survey will be continuously implemented. Database will complete and officially put into use since August 2018.
