HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam - The Ba Ria Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development Company (BUSADCO) has awarded a €9.5 million contract to Royal HaskoningDHV to implement a complete wastewater solution for the Phu My New Urban Area near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The sewage plant will use Royal HaskoningDHV's Carrousel® technology for the biological treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater, with a treatment capacity of almost 30,000 m3/day.
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 project also includes the construction of four pumping stations, over 100km of pipeline network and the connection of 15,000 households and over 1,000 small-and medium-sized enterprises.
Dr. Hoang Duc Thao, chairman 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 first priority for economic and social development of Ba Ria Vung Tau Province."
The wastewater solution for Phu My is the third ORIO funded project in Vietnam that Royal HaskoningDHV will implement. The project is expected to be completed by December 2019.
