Support Vietnam’s cargo handling needs with new port infrastructure in the north
Maritime cargo traffic in northern Vietnam was expected to increase to 56 million tons in 2010, and to 110 million to 130 million tons in 2020. Such demand would exceed the cargo handling capacity of both Haiphong and Cai Lan ports, presenting an urgent need to boost the cargo handling capacity of ports serving maritime trade in northern Vietnam.
Facing this situation, the government of Vietnam conducted a feasibility study on Lach Huyen Port Infrastructure Construction Project at Cat Hai Island, Haiphong city. Vietnam then requested the government of Japan to provide JICA official development assistance (ODA) loans to the project to put into force the development plan proposed in its feasibility study stage.
The following were the major subjects reviewed in the feasibility study:
The Vietnamese government sought and received assistance from JICA to carry out preparatory surveys, studies, and project formulation plans. JICA and Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport signed a deal for developing the port and its access road and bridge.
OC Global was entrusted by JICA with preparing a medium-term development plan for Lach Huyen port infrastructure for 2020. The plan identified the scope of the project to be implemented under JICA ODA loan financing from 2015. We were also assigned responsibility for preparing the detailed design and tender documents for the appointment of construction contracts.
The following services were among the preparatory works OC Global performed:
As a result of the services provided above, our design and tender documents provided for the following main works:
