Construction is now underway on a deep sea port connection between Dinh Vu Industrial Zone (DVIZ) and Cat Hai Island.
This infrastructure project is part of the development of the Dinh Vu-Cat Hai Economic Zone, focusing on transportation links to and from the DVIZ, which also benefits from the economic zone package, the best tax package available in Vietnam, and one of the most competitive packages in ASEAN.
The project will provide direct access to the Lach Huyen Deep Sea Port for ships of up to 100,000 dead weight tonnage (DWT); direct access to the Dinh Vu General Port of 20,000 DWT; direct access to the Dinh Vu Liquids Jetty up to 20,000 DWT; direct access to Highway 5 and the new Hanoi-Haiphong-Dinh Vu road. It also connects to Cat Bi International Airport, and is only seven kilometres from Haiphong city centre.
The Dinh Vu-Cat Hai sea-crossing bridge connecting the existing DVIZ to the deep-sea port of Lach Huyen is currently under construction. The Tan Vu-Lach Huyen sea-crossing bridge is directly linked to the new Highway 5 connecting Haiphong with Hanoi and other provinces.
Linked with DVIZ, these important projects will provide easy access to transportation links for businesses in the DVIZ Industrial Park Zone.
Japanese contractors built the bridge, with the access road constructed by a domestic firm. This link will facilitate the transportation and distribution of materials and products in DVIZ to and from the Lach Huyen deep sea port to the rest of the world.
The Lach Huyen deep sea port is being constructed by international developers. Upon completion in 2016, Lach Huyen will cater to vessels of up to 100,000 DWT. This crucial development will compliment Haiphong’s other ports, enabling direct shipment of goods to and from other ports across the world.
In other words, Dinh Vu-Cat Hai Economic Zone will be a strategic location for investments with convenient access to local markets and direct access to countries in the region and further afield.
The critical features of this project have pointed towards a comprehensive development picture of Dinh Vu-Cat Hai Economic Zone, differentiating DVIZ from other industrial zones and bringing success to DVIZ’s clients.
To date, DVIZ has welcomed 54 projects from Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore, the US and other countries in the region.
DVIZ has proven to be a well-considered location in the eyes of international and local industries thanks to its advantages in terms of transport, utilities, workforce, economic issues and tax benefits.
DVIZ is an industrial park developed by a consortium of international developers together with the city of Haiphong. The zone began operations some 15 years ago and has proven to be one of the most successful developments in the north of Vietnam.
