Sept. 27, 2007 -- DHV and Hai Duong Water Supply Company have signed a turnkey contract for the Hai Duong Water Supply Project in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The 17 million euro contract involves the construction of a complete drinking water system for 100,000 inhabitants and industries in a town near Hanoi in northern Vietnam.

This is the second substantial project in the Vietnamese water sector to be financed by the Dutch government's ORET program. Earlier this year DHV signed a contract valued at almost 15 million euro for the Tan Hiep Water Supply Project near Ho Chi Minh City.

In 2010 the new water supply system, with a daily capacity of 20 million liters, will provide approximately 100,000 inhabitants and the industries of Hai Duong City with clean drinking water. DHV is responsible for the design and the implementation of the entire water supply system: from the raw water intake pumping stations on the Thai Binh river, through to the treatment plant, and from the distribution pipes, through to the water meters in people's homes. In addition, during the first 2 years of the system's operation, the project will be supported by a Technical Assistance program (education, training and maintenance).

Over the last few years the province of Hai Duong has experienced significant economic development, which has been accompanied by a parallel growth in its population. As a result, there is a great need for sustainably developed basic infrastructure, such as water supply systems.

"It is wonderful that these people will soon have access to their own water connections, and that DHV and the Dutch government can contribute to a sustainable development of Vietnam," says Piet van Helvoort, Managing Director of DHV's Water division.

The project is partly financed by a grant from the Dutch government's ORET program. The remaining financing comes from local Vietnamese contributions as well as a commercial loan.

DHV is an international consultancy and engineering group that provides services and sustainable solutions in the fields of Transportation, Water, Building and Manufacturing, Spatial Planning and the Environment, and Aviation.
