Royal HaskoningDHV Working on Major Artificial Island Project in Vietnam

TTC Land Estate Investment Group and Royal HaskoningDHV have signed a contract for the design of an artificial island in Phu Quoc, a new Special Economic Zone in the South West of Vietnam.

The signing ceremony took place at the Vietnamese Embassy in The Hague in the presence of Her Excellency, Madame Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen thi Kim Ngan.

According to Royal HaskoningDHV, this man-made island, in the shape of Vietnam’s national flower the lotus, will be located at the South East coast of Phu Quoc Island and will be part of a larger waterfront and coastal development by TTC Land Estate Investment Group.

The company also announced that the scope of the work includes the design of the land reclamation, breakwater, beaches, revetments and water quality study to ensure the island is sustainable and climate proof.

Under the deal, TTC Land Estate Investment Group and Royal HaskoningDHV will work to preserve the natural features of Phu Quoc, using sustainable solutions to integrate the island completely in its natural environment.

Ronald Stive, Royal HaskoningDHV expert in Water Edge Development commented: “I am very pleased to see that creative and carefully shaped nearshore land reclamation is nowadays recognized as a sustainable way of integrated ‘Water Edge Development’. Not only recognized in the Middle-East, where this development started, but also in Southeast Asia and particularly in Vietnam.”
