Drake & Scull International has announced that its wholly-owned German arm, Passavant-Roediger, has landed a US$46m contract to expand Thu Duc water treatment plant in Vietnam.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract will see Passavant-Roediger build a treatment plant with a capacity to treat 300,000m3 of river water per day.
The project will represent the third phase of development at Thu Duc. A river water intake pumping station and pressure main pipes will also be incorporated to deliver feed water into the plant.
Passavant-Roediger managing director Dr Mazen Bachir said: “This key project demonstrates the reputation of Passavant-Roediger as the leading global EPC specialist of turnkey water, wastewater and industrial process water treatment plants.
"Our global experience and patented technology have again played a very important role in winning this project.
"Moreover, being our first venture in Vietnam, we strongly believe that this project will give Passavant-Roediger a significant head start as we move forward with our growth plans in the country”.
The company added that its project pipeline had grown by 300 percent over the last 12 months to US$163.4m.
