QUẢNG NAM — Residents in the central province of Quảng Nam will have access to more clean water when a new water plant is put into operation on Saturday.
The Phú Ninh water plant, located in Tam Xuân 2 Commune in Núi Thành District, will supply water to the Chu Lai Open Economic Zone, districts of Duy Xuyên, Thăng Bình and Núi Thành, and Tam Kỳ City.
Invested by Phú Ninh Water Treatment Plant Joint Stock Company under the Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model, it has total investment of more than VNĐ1.2 trillion (US$51.1 million).
With a capacity of 50,000cu.m per day, the plant is expected to provide water for living, administrative, service, commercial and industrial production purposes at the Chu Lai economic zone, urban and rural areas, and industrial zones in nearby regions.
Its capacity will reach 75,000cu.m per day by 2019, and full capacity of 300,000cu.m per day after 2025.
In May this year, Metro Pacific Water Company from the Philippines acquired 45 per cent of the BOO Phú Ninh Water Treatment Plant Joint Stock Company.
Metro Pacific Water under Metro Pacific Investments Corporation is among the largest water companies in the Philippines, supplying more than 60 per cent of clean water in the Southeast Asian country.
The plant’s investor plans to expand the pipeline network to Hội An City
More pipelines will also be built in the northern and southern regions of Quảng Nam Province by next year. — VNS
