Phu My 3 Specialised Industrial Park - An attractive based for investors

The 999ha Phu My 3 Specialised Industrial Park (Phu My 3 SIP) is a key project of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province as well as Vietnamese and Japanese governments. Located in Tan Thanh district, it is developed by Thanh Binh Phu My Joint Stock Company (TBPM) – 100% Vietnamese private investment, and managed by Japanese experts. Phu My 3 SIP has recently received the centralized waste water treatment plant Phase 1-1 (WWTP) from Kobelco Eco-Solutions Vietnam (Kobelco). In Ba Ria - Vung Tau province, this is the first WWTP whose effluent quality complies with Class A of QCVN 40:2011/BTNMT. Kazama Toshio, Phu My 3 SIPs Managing Director, talks about this plant.

Phu My 3 SIP is one of two industrial parks set up under the Co-operation and Development Agreement between Viet Nam and Japan. Could you tell us more about the park?

Mr. Kazama Toshio, Phu My 3 SIP’s Managing Director

It was a great honour for Phu My 3 SIP to be chosen as one of the two industrial park projects under the Cooperation and Development Agreement signed between Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda in November 2011.

Our industrial park is a key project of Ba Ria - Vung Tau province, under the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)s Province-Based Economic Growth programme.

A perfect combination of strategic geographic location, international-standard infrastructure, professional consultants and active support from the two governments has been our distinct competitive advantage. Our core values include creating sustainable development with a strong focus on environmental protection, delivering value to customers and partners as well as profoundly contributing to the socio-economic growth of the local area. In addition, we have been making every endeavour to strengthen business programmes with Vietnamese and Japanese governments, international co-operation and investment promotion to provide better incentives for enterprises.

The first factory in Phu My 3 SIP will only start operating in the next three months while Phu My 3 SIPs WWTP has already been completed. Why was the plant commissioned so early?

On 3rd May 2017, TBPM and Kobelco successfully organised the WWTPs handover ceremony. Now our WWTP is ready to receive and treat wastewater though the first factory will only start operating in August 2017. We embrace our business philosophy of “Always support, and succeed with, partners and customers” by providing investors with completed international-standard infrastructure even before their inauguration. Phu My3 SIPs management board is always ready to provide top-notch quality as well as clear difficulties and obstacles for our customers.

Significant business development combined with effective environmental conservation is the essential balance that Viet Nam and many other countries are striving for. As an industrial park chosen by Japanese and Vietnamese governments, environmental protection is consistently one of our top priorities. Furthermore, it is our goal to be an effective ally of our customers in sustainable development. By building a first-class WWTP, we aim to safeguard our investors from the risk of breaching environmental regulations due to a lack of environmental infrastructure, which can lead to negative impacts on their business operation.

Additionally, investment in high-grade wastewater treatment facilities is part of the constant efforts made by TBPM to execute its vision of becoming an integrated and synchronous industrial park, fulfilling the expectations of both governments and offering optimum quality for our customers, local and foreign alike.

According to Article 101 of the Law on Environmental Protection, a wastewater treatment system is one of the compulsory requirements in an industrial parks infrastructure to achieve the target of environmental protection. In line with this regulation, Phu My 3 SIP has finished construction of the WWTP even before the operation of our customers factories. With this WWTP, Phu My 3 SIP can attract projects in industries such as plating, chemicals and paper production which need to satisfy strict environmental conditions stipulated by Ba Ria - Vung Tau province.

What is unique about the WWTP of Phu My 3 SIP?

We are proud to say that our WWTP is the first in Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province to produce effluents meeting quality requirements under Class A of QCVN 40:2011/BTNMT.

WWTP of Phu My 3 SIP is designed, built, operated, managed and maintained by Kobelco with capacity in the 1st phase (2017) of 9,000cu.m/day-night and total capacity of 45,000cu.m/day-night, and will run 24 hours/365 days.

It applies comprehensive state-of-the art technical mechanisms and processes, including screening, equalising, aerobic and physicochemical treatment, sludge stability and final disinfection.

In addition, an automatic monitoring system is installed in accordance with current regulations to carefully monitor effluents and transmit the recorded data to Ba Ria - Vung Tau Department of Natural Resources and Environment for the purpose of wastewater management.

Why did TBPM choose Kobelco to install the WWTP?

To develop the synchronous world-class technical infrastructure and utilities of Phu My 3 SIP, we place our trust in professional contractors from Japan. It is mandatory that the contractors who design and build our infrastructure should be major firms in the industry with excellent capabilities. Following rigourous screening, Kobelco gained our confidence to become the strategic partner of Phu My 3 SIP in the WWTP project.

Kobelco Eco-Solutions Vietnam specialises in providing excellent environmental solutions with 100 percent investment by Kobelco Eco-Solutions Japan, a leading corporation with 60 years of experience in water treatment.

Since November 2010, Kobelco has been established in Viet Nam to bring advanced environmental technologies that are researched, developed and applied in Japan to Viet Nam as well as other Southeast Asian countries. Kobelcos outstanding experience and technical expertise are a firm assurance for the quality of Phu My 3 SIPs WWTP.
