JFE Engineering Corporation

JFE Engineering Corporation (President and CEO: Hajime Oshita, Head Office: Chiyoda-ku Tokyo) recently received an order for the Yen Xa wastewater treatment plant from Hanoi City, Vietnam. The new plant will have the largest treatment capacity in Hanoi. Construction will be carried out by a joint venture with Tsukishima Kikai Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Kazuhiko Yamada, Head Office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo), aiming at completion in 2022.

While the country is currently undergoing urbanization accompanying rapid economic growth, improvement of wastewater treatment facilities has become an urgent issue in order to provide solutions to the growing water pollution by domestic sewage.

In this project, a wastewater treatment facility with a treatment capacity of 270,000 m3/day (900,000 population equivalent) equipped with an advanced treatment process that efficiently removes nitrogen and phosphorus will be constructed. As funding for the project, ODA loan will be provided by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA; an Independent Administrative Institution). Advanced Japanese technologies will be fully incorporated in the facility, including the high rate filtration technology and the pipe-jacking method with electromagnetic detection function as a construction technology, among others, realizing export of high quality infrastructure.

In addition, JFE Engineering is currently constructing the Hòa Lạc wastewater treatment plant (treatment capacity: 36,000 m3/day) in Hanoi. Work began in 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in February 2019. In the proposal evaluation for Yen Xa project, the company was highly praised not only for its technical capabilities of project execution on a full turnkey basis from design to construction, but also for continuing employment of local staff, who accumulated experience in the Hòa Lạc wastewater treatment plant.

Throughout the implementation of Yen Xa project as well as the construction of the Hoa Lac wastewater treatment plant, JFE Engineering will keep on striving to offer Japanese technologies and know-how, and contribute to improvement of the living environment in Vietnam by further strengthening cooperation with local companies *1.

  • *1 JFE Engineering has been promoting its technologies to local governments and related ministries in Vietnam through the Grassroots Technical Cooperation Projects by JICA "Capacity Building for Management of Sewage Works in Hanoi (Phase 2)" carried out by the City of Yokohama Environmental Planning Bureau, among other activities.
