Vinci to build plant in Cambodia to treat Mekong River water

France’s Vinci Construction Grands Projets signed a contract with the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority on 14 November to design and build the Bakheng water treatment plant in the northern outskirts of the Cambodian capital.

In the $155m first phase of the project, Vinci will build a facility capable of treating 195,000 cubic metres of water from the Mekong River a day.

It will install 1.5km of pipes to bring water from the river, and a 2-metre-diameter pipeline nearly 8km in length to carry clean water to half a million city residents.
