VIETNAM - Japan-based JFE Engineering Corporation and Nihon Suido Consultants Company are exploring plans to develop wastewater and garbage treatment plants in Danang, a major port city in the south central coast of Vietnam.
The two companies’ senior management held a working session on 14 November with local municipal authorities to discuss the pre-feasibility study of the project.
Nihon Suido Consultants has first conducted a pre-feasibility study on a project to improve environmental sanitation in Danang city in 2007.
Following that, Nihon Suido Consultants and its partners, including Sumitomo, JFE Engineering and Tsukishima Kakai set up a working group to develop the project under the public-private partnership (PPP).
The project is estimated to cost over US$190 million (¥13.9 billion).
