International expertise provided for technical due diligence

The lender, IFC, required an international engineering consultancy firm to undertake a feasibility study for the project. Bringing global expertise in waste to energy plants from a team based in the United Kingdom, Royal HaskoningDHV was contracted to fulfil this role. An additional benefit is on-the-ground support from our staff in Vietnam who have local and regional experience in solid waste, water and construction sectors.

By providing a modern waste treatment and disposal solution using technology which minimises environmental impact, the new plant will help reduce health risks associated with untreated waste and avoid issues such as soil and groundwater contamination connected with landfill.

The plant has an incineration capacity of 500 tonnes per day of mixed domestic and industrial waste. With industrial waste (predominantly textiles and plastics) the calorific value of the waste increases and thus the amount of energy generated increases as well - expected to be more than 90,000 MWH per year. It will prevent around 600,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions over 15 years. The excess power generated will be sold to Vietnam Electricity Corporation.
