The project will deliver sanitation for residents and industries whose wastewater is currently discharged untreated, resulting in high levels of environmental pollution. The Dutch government is financing the project as part of its Facility for Infrastructure Development (ORIO programme) in developing countries.

The sewage plant will use Royal HaskoningDHV’s Carrousel technology for the biological treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater. The new plant will have a treatment capacity of almost 30,000 cubic metres per day.

The project also includes the construction of four pumping stations, over 100 kilometres of pipeline network, and the connection of 15,000 households and over 1,000 small- and medium-sized enterprises. During the operation and maintenance phase, the team will also provide technical assistance and staff training.

Hoang Duc Thao, chairman cum 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 the priority for economic and social development of Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.”

Doan Manh Thang, Royal HaskoningDHV’s director of Water Division in Vietnam, said, “Since we started to define the needs for proper sanitation in the area, all stakeholders have been focused on bringing this project into reality. We have worked closely with BUSADCO, the Ba Ria-Vung Tau People’s Committee of and the Dutch government to define, design, and now to implement this much-needed solution.”

“The environmental benefits will be visible in a significantly improved water quality in the area’s lakes, canals, and the Thi Vai River and will result in better living conditions for residents. It will also help small- and medium-sized enterprises to protect the environment around their businesses,” he said.

The wastewater solution for Phu My is the third ORIO-funded project in Vietnam that Royal HaskoningDHV will implement. ORIO, the Dutch government’s Facility for Infrastructure Development encourages public infrastructure development in developing countries.

The scheme will improve the living conditions of approximately 400,000 people. The project also adds to the company’s growing number of environmental improvement schemes in Vietnam, of which ten are ongoing. The project is expected to be completed by December 2019.
