Royal HaskoningDHV signs Vietnamese wastewater contract

17 Jul 17 Royal HaskoningDHV has signed a contract for a complete wastewater system to serve 175,000 people in a new urban area near Ho Chi Minh XCity in Vietnam.

The €9.5m (£8.3m) contact with the Ba Ria Vung Tau Urban Sewerage & Development Company (Busadco) involves a complete wastewater project for Phu My New Urban Area.

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, which has already been used for the biological treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater in some 1,500 wastewater treatment plants worldwide. The new plant will have a treatment capacity of almost 30,000m3/day.

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. During the operation and maintenance phase the team will also provide technical assistance and staff training.

The project is expected to be completed by December 2019.
