PARIS, April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- New Contract to Enhance Sanitation Services in Vietnam

SUEZ was awarded the contract by the local water authority HAWASUCO[1] to 
supply sanitation services to Vi Thanh, the capital of Vietnam's southern 
province of Hau Giang. This EUR9.5 million contract includes the construction 
of a wastewater treatment plant and a sewerage network to improve the living 
standards of over 6,500 inhabitants and to protect the Xang Xa No city canal 
from pollution. 

Rapid population growth has caused various environmental issues in the city of 
Vi Thanh, located 200 km southwest of Ho Chi Minh City. Currently, Vi Thanh's 
wastewater and rainwater, collected by a combined drainage system, are 
discharged untreated into the Xang Xa No canal, one of the city's drinking 
water supply sources. This current system leads to health and environmental 

The contract covers the construction of a 3,000 m3/day wastewater treatment 
plant and a 41-km sewer network with 1,400 household connections. Works are 
expected to start in late 2018 and will last for 30 months. Financed by Danish 
International Development Agency (DANIDA Business Finance), the project is a 
new benchmark for SUEZ in Vietnam, where the Group is currently responsible for 
the building of two 3,000 m3/day wastewater treatment plants and the sanitation 
services in the cities of Ba Don and Ha Giang. 

"Since its entry in Southeast Asia in 1953, SUEZ has been supporting regional 
countries in improving their drinking water, sanitation and waste management 
services in response to a rapidly growing population. Over the last few months, 
the Group has won the contracts to build an industrial waste-to-energy plant in 
Thailand, extend the Medan drinking water production plant in Indonesia, and 
deploy its Ice Pigging technology in Singapore. The latest contract in Vietnam 
illustrates the Group's commitment to provide local authorities with the best 
solutions to guarantee access to basic services for all inhabitants," said 
Bertrand Camus, SUEZ Senior Executive VP in charge of Africa, Middle East, 
India, Asia and Pacific.
