Japan Leads Consortium for Vietnam’s Dung Quat II Port Project
Under a contract signed on Wednesday, a consortium comprising Japan’s Nikken Sekkei Civil Engineering Ltd and Port and Waterway Engineering Consultant Company would provide consulting and draws up a detailed plan for the central Quang Ngai Province’s Dung Quat II Port project.
According to Viet Nam News, this contract, worth over US$1 million, will be implemented within 10 months.
Pham Nhu Ro, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee and head of the Dung Quat Economic Zone Authority, said: “The planning of Dung Quat II Port is vital to the development of Dung Quat II heavy industry complex, which is key to the expansion of the Dung Quat EZ.”
Viet Nam News reports that the port will be developed in Dung Quat II Bay, which connects to around 5,000ha used for developing heavy industries and 2,000ha for support industries.
Currently, Dung Quat II Port is able to serve 50,000 DWT ships and most of the space has been handed over to project investors at the economic zone.
