Ba Ria-Vung Tau (VNA) – Dutch-owned company Royal Haskoning DHV has recently signed a contract with the Ba Ria – Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development Company (BUSADCO) 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 EUR (10.9 million USD) 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 cu.m a day, the company said.

The company will also build four pumping stations, install 100km of pipes 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.-VNA
