Germany-based wholly-owned subsidiary of Drake & Scull International (DSI), Passavant-Roediger, has won a contract to expand a water treatment plant located in the urban district of Thu Duc, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The value of the contract is AED169m ($46m) and is the subsidiary's first project in the country.
As per the contractual terms, Passavant-Roediger will undertake engineering, procurement, and construction of the 300,000m³ per day water treatment plant, and will also provide its patented Turbo-LME technology for the facility.
The plant is expected to treat river water and provide potable quality water to the people living in the district.
Passavant-Roediger managing director Mazen Bachir said the company won the contract mainly for its patented technology.
"Leveraging our core expertise in high-rate water purification technology using our patented Turbo-LME process, we are therefore looking forward to ensure the optimal performance of the water treatment facility and to satisfy the specific requirements of this high-stakes project," Bachir added.
In addition to expanding the total capacity of the plant, Passavant-Roediger will also construct river water intake pumping station and pressure mains pipes to supply feed water to the facility.
The contract work will be the third phase of the water delivery programme at Thu Doc, Vietnam.
DSI acquired global developer of wastewater, water and sludge treatment technologies, Passavant-Roediger, in 2009 to improve its capabilities in the region's water and wastewater sector.
