The project, the first implemented under the public-private partnership in Quang Nam province, cost VND1.221 trillion (US$52.5 million) and serves the Chu Lai Open Economic Zone, the districts of Duy Xuyen, Thang Binh, Nui Thanh and Tam Ky city.
Once fully operational, the plant will have a total daily capacity of 300,000 cubic meters of water, becoming the largest clean water plant in the central region. Its water input is provided by Phu Ninh Reservoir.
The first stage consists of two components 1A and 1B, which will be completed by the end of 2020. The second and third stages are scheduled for completion by 2025 and after 2025.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Quang Nam Vice Chairman Huynh Khanh Toan affirmed that the Phu Ninh clean water plant will meet the demand of clean water at the province’s key industrial development areas.
As scheduled, the water pipes will be extended in 2019 to provide clean water for urban areas, resorts and tourist zones, high-tech agricultural zones and residential use in the other communes of Thang Binh and Nui Thanh districts.
