K-water will launch Vietnam's first smart water management project
K-water will form a task force with 10 small and medium-size venture firms in the domestic water industry to enter the Vietnamese smart water management market following its participation in the 2018 Vietnam International Water Week (VIWW) on March 3-8.
The 10 small and medium-sized venture companies include Dongwoo Engineering Co., Mirae E&I Co., Samsung Instrument Co., Samjin Precision Co., Scotra Co, USOL Co., EcoEnergy Solutions Inc., Fieldsolution Co., Hydronet Co., and Hitec EPC Co.

At the event, K-water introduced advanced water management technologies, including smart water management solutions, to the Vietnamese water market and help the task force expand its overseas markets.

Smart water management ranges from monitoring water resources, flood disaster management, and improving water flow rates to smart water purification plants and water and energy nexus technologies.

At the event, K-water held a business conference for 100 Vietnamese buyers. It will help the 10 small- and medium-sized venture firms promote their products and sign export contracts with new buyers.

It also took part in the Water EXPO for two days on March 4-5 and run its promotion hall with a theme of smart water management in cooperation with the venture companies in order to introduce their water management technologies and solutions.

During a visit to Vietnam, K-water is planning to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with three Vietnamese water management agencies, including National Centre for Resources Planning and Investigation, Vietnam Water Supply and Sewage Association, and Ninh Binh Water Supply and Sewerage Co., to pilot Vietnam’s first smart water management project.

This project is co-funded by the Ministries of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport, the Ministry of SMEs and Startups, and K-water to help small- and medium-sized domestic water companies to break into the Vietnamese water market.
