Following its acquisition of Czech power plant equipment maker Škoda Power, Doosan has created a new umbrella company, Doosan Power Systems Ltd (DPS). The new company aims to increase market reach by providing complete plant solution and boiler-turbine-generator solutions globally.

DPS is made up of four businesses Doosan Babcock, Škoda Power, Doosan Power Systems Americas and Doosan Power Systems Europe.

Each of the business units sitting under the Doosan Power Systems umbrella will have a specific focus and will enable the company to provide tailored expertise in its specialist area:

Doosan Babcock designs, supplies and constructs advanced steam generation technology for the power industry, and is currently developing some of the cleanest, most efficient coal-powered plant in the world.

Škoda Power is a leading manufacturer and supplier of modern turbine systems, components and services in the field of design, manufacturing and installation of power generation equipment. The areas of service expertise offered by this part of the business include commissioning, retrofit and long-term service and maintenance.

Doosan Power Systems Americas gives strength to Doosan’s vision of being an international leader in delivering advanced clean energy technologies, products and services, and provides complete boiler and turbine services to North and South America.

Doosan Power Systems Europe delivers safe and reliable power plant solutions to European markets, bringing together OEM capabilities in boilers from Doosan Babcock and steam turbines from Škoda Power for the first time.

Chairman of Doosan Power Systems Geewon Park, said: “The Škoda Power acquisition marked an important phase in the evolution of the company and enabled us to form Doosan Power Systems, a parent company that brings together our four specialist business units in a cohesive and forward looking way.”
