Sekisui Chemical, Osaka to help repair Vietnamese sewer pipes

TOKYO -- Sekisui Chemical and the city of Osaka are teaming up to undertake sewer pipe repairs in Vietnam.

     The public-private partnership will begin repairing sewer pipes in Ho Chi Minh City as early as this year, introducing a construction method in which Sekisui Chemical specializes. The so-called SPR method reinforces sewer pipe walls from the inside, enabling aging infrastructure to be repaired without having to dig up the road above.

     Official development assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency will cover a portion of the project's cost.

     Demand for maintenance and repair work on aging infrastructure in Southeast Asian emerging nations is expected to increase in the future. Working with local municipalities having expertise in sewage system management, Sekisui Chemical hopes to win more orders.
