JSCE’s Innovative Technique Award recognizes the innovation in technologies applied to the Project from engineering design to construction of the first-ever longest construction in Vietnam of 3,230-meter long breakwater and 7,600-meter long sand protection dyke as well as reclamation, soft soil improvement, and channel dredging. The introduction of the advanced technologies enabled the high qualities with short construction period and safety.

This is the first pilot Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project between the Government of Vietnam and the Government of Japan where public portion was financed by Japanese ODA and private portion was invested by a joint venture of Japanese and Vietnamese companies.

The opening of the deep-sea port and related basic infrastructure in Lach Huyen area in 2018 has boosted up the contribution of the project to economic development of the Northern region and the greater competitiveness of Vietnam in the international market.
