Dutch-owned company Royal HaskoningDHV on Wednesday signed a contract with the Ba Ria – Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development Company for a complete wastewater solution benefiting over 175,000 residents of the Phu My New Urban Area.

As part of the Facility for Infrastructure Development (ORIO programme) in developing countries financed by the Dutch Government, the 9.5 million euro (US$10.9 million) project will deliver sanitation to residents and industries whose wastewater is currently discharged untreated, resulting in severe pollution.

A sewage plant will be built using the company’s bio-technology which is used in some 1,500 wastewater treatment plants around the world.

It would have a capacity of almost 30,000 cubic metres a day, the company said.

The company will also build four pumping stations, install 100km of pipels and connect 15,000 households and over 1,000 small-and medium-sized enterprises.

During the operation and maintenance phase, it will provide technical assistance and training to BUSADCO workers.

Hoang Duc Thao, chairman and general director of BUSADCO, said: “The construction of a complete wastewater collection and treatment system for Phu My New Urban Area has become an urgent issue and a priority for economic and social development of Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province.”

It will be the third ORIO-funded project in Viet Nam that Royal HaskoningDHV will execute.

The project, which will improve living conditions for around 400,000 people, also adds to the company’s growing number of environmental improvement schemes in Viet Nam, 10 of which are ongoing.

The project is expected to be completed by December 2019. — VNS
