VSIP Bac Ninh High-rise Ready-Built Factories

VSIP Bac Ninh High-rise Ready-Built Factories


VSIP Group, the leading integrated township and industrial park developer in Vietnam, is opening a new 700-hectares industrial park in Bac Ninh province. Situated close to the 1A highway, Noi Bai International Airport, and Hanoi’s new city center, the industrial park is ideally located to accommodate the needs of its tenants.

Featuring two seven-story factory buildings, the industrial park will be built to meet diverse business demands, including clean and light manufacturing, research and development, e-commerce, and office operations. The buildings will also be built to conserve natural resources. Reflective paint and tiles, external shading devices, LED lighting, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures will be installed to reduce the buildings’ energy and water use.

The resource efficiency of the factories aligns with VSIP Group’s vision for a greener tomorrow. VSIP Group is a joint venture between the Vietnam-based Becamex IDC Corporation and a Singapore-based consortium led by Sembcorp Development.

The factories have received a preliminary EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.

Ricons Mechanical Processing Plant-Phase 1

Ricons Mechanical Processing Plant-Phase 1


Located on 25,500 square meters of land, the Ricons Mechanical Processing Plant will produce, repair and process mechanical products to be used for construction activities. Ricons Construction Investment is one of the few construction companies in Vietnam who own their complete value chain, from materials, engineering, consulting, design and construction straight through to real estate investment and building management.

Aligned with Ricons Construction Investment’s commitment to environmental protection, the plant was designed and built with resource-efficient features and technologies. Skylights were incorporated into the design of the plant, providing daylight to more than half of the floor area. Solar photovoltaics, energy-saving lighting and a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system were also installed, reducing the building’s energy usage by over 60 percent.

The plant was designed by ARDOR Architects, a building design consultancy with a focus on incorporating resource-efficient standards into its buildings.

Ricons Mechanical Processing Plant – Phase 1 has received EDGE Advanced certification from SGS Vietnam.

Song Hau Surface Water Plant – Phase One

Phase One of the Song Hau Water Treatment Plant has received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam.

Song Hau Surface Water Plant – Phase One

In response to the critical problem of water cleanliness and security in the Mekong Delta, AquaOne Hau Giang has created a clean drinking water supply and wastewater treatment plant that is among the most advanced facilities in Vietnam. The company has invested more than 1,900 billion dong in 15 hectares of land for the first phase of the industrial plant, which will provide 100,000m3 of water per day to both residents and corporations. Once the second phase is constructed, the capacity will increase to between 500,000 and 1,000,000m3 of water per day.

Future plans call for even greater expansion, as AquaOne Hau Giang’s ambition is to become the major water supplier for such provinces as Can Tho, Soc Trang, Bac Lieu and Ca Mau. EDGE certification dovetails well with the company’s ambitions to elevate the living standards of the Vietnamese people by providing a reliable water supply in the most sustainable manner possible.

Phase One of the Song Hau Water Treatment Plant has received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam. While the complex also includes a green dormitory for workers, numbers in this project study are reflective of the light industry portion of the complex.
