The region of Phan Rang Thap Cham city, the administrative capital of Vietnam’s Ninh Thuan province, is one of Vietnam’s poorest and driest. The absence of a sewerage and wastewater treatment system means wastewater discharges directly into the city and surroundings, causing serious pollution to ground and surface water.
Royal HaskoningDHV is working on the construction of a sewerage and wastewater treatment plant that will treat 10,000 m3/day. The treated wastewater will be reused to irrigate surrounding agricultural areas, protecting the environment and improving the quality of the region’s lakes and rivers.
We acted as private initiator in the application, helped to secure ORIO* funding for the project, and have carried out technical and socio-economic surveys, Environmental Impact Assessments, basic and detailed designs, financing plans and a capacity building programme.
*ORIO funding by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to encourage public infrastructure development in developing countries.
