HÀ NỘI (VNS) — China’s Xinxing Corporation has won the bid for the supply of materials for the second phase of the Đà River water pipeline.
The firm would supply the materials at 10 per cent less than the approved cost, a press release by the Vinaconex Water Supply Joint Stock Company (Viwasupco) said.
The construction of Đà River Water Project Phase 2 is an important project for providing clean water to people in the capital, and ensuring livelihood security and social stability.
Because of the importance of the project, Viwasupco conducted open international bidding to choose contractors with sufficient capacity and experience, the press release said.
After a strict and careful selection process, Xinxing Corporation was chosen by Vinwasupco for the supply of ductile cast iron pipes and fittings.
The second phase of the project started last October after several delays. The project is one component of a larger one to supply clean water to nearly 200,000 households living along the chain of Sơn Tây, Hòa Lạc, Xuân Mai and Miếu Môn, as well as Hà Nội and Hà Đông urban areas.
