An equal stake consortium between Vinci Construction Grands Projets and Acciona Agua has secured a contract to design and build phase 1 for the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe wastewater treatment plant in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Vinci Construction Grands Projets said that the design-build portion of the contract is expected to take five years for completion, including the starting-up process and acceptance of works and also calls for operating and maintaining the facility for a five-year period.

The wastewater treatment plant project is financed by the World Bank amounting €200m, where the €170m is allocated for the design-build portion and €30m for operation and maintenance.

The project has a peak capacity of 34,000 cubic metres per hour and is expected to include a pumping station, biological treatment, disinfection, sludge treatment, odour treatment as well as connection to the city’s sewage system.

The new project treats the wastewater from the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Basin and is expected to be an essential part of Ho Chi Minh City’s second environmental plan benefiting more than a million residents.

The company said that the project requires hiring of up to 800 local human resources at peak construction period and approximately 25,000 hours of training for the workers id planned to ensure safety at the worksite along with the quality of the structure.

The new contract is expected to strengthen the presence of Vinci Construction in Vietnam, where the Group, through its subsidiaries is currently working on a design-build project for a 10km treated-water transfer pipeline to facilitate supply of drinking water to the centre of Ho Chi Minh City.

Recently, the state agency in charge of roads and railways infrastructure in the Republic of Ireland, Infrastructure Ireland has awarded an 11-year contract to Turas, a joint-venture between Vinci Highways, and Abtran.

Under the contract, the joint-venture will be responsible for managing freeflow transactions services and customer relations on the Dublin ring road.

The Dublin ring road sees an average of 145,000 vehicles each day, and marks the most heavily trafficked corridor of Ireland’s national roads network.

Vinci Highways and Abtran are expected to join their capabilities and experiences to deliver a service covering all technology, systems and operations to support free-flow transactions, payment collection and transmission to the state agency TII.
