CAN THO – A business mission from the Japanese city of Fukuoka has introduced technological solutions to low emission development and urban resilience in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.

At a seminar last Friday, Takashi Miyachika, a representative of Taiho Metals Co, presented a system of water-proof doors and flood shields which has been successfully applied in Japan and China. He said the system is designed to prevent floodwaters from inundating underground works.

He said his company would be able to install such systems in Can Tho and other provinces in the delta.

Daiken Corporation’s Norishika Matsuo said his company could build a low-cost underground tank capable of holding 100 tons of water for household use and vegetable farming. Installation work could take a week.

The tank is suitable for residential areas, schools, parks, parking lots and factories which are prone to flooding, he said.

Hiroki Murakami from Sysmet Corporation introduced an early-warning system for disasters called Zerosai. The advanced information technology application can be controlled by a smartphone.

Yoshifumi Onoue of Kyowakiden Vietnam Co Ltd showed a seawater desalination system and other water treatment technologies for the Mekong Delta where salinity intrusion is not uncommon.

Can Tho City’s vice chairwoman Vo Thi Hong Anh told the Daily that the local government would look into these modern technologies before they are applied, especially in residential areas.
