CONINCO TOWER Project is selected in the technology solutions of energy saving
CONINCO TOWER has been selected to participate in the Energy Saving Technology Solutions for Building Sector project of Energy Efficiency Improvement Project in commercial buildings and high rise condominiums in Vietnam (EECB). On June 16, 2017 at the headquarters of the Ministry of Construction (at No. 37 Le Dai Hanh, Hanoi), the Signing Ceremony of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between CONINCO and Project Management Unit (PMU) of EECB took place. This important event marks the technological cooperation in energy saving between the two sides.
Attending the signing ceremony, regarding the PMU, there were Dr. Le Trung Thanh - Project Director, Director of Department of Science, Technology and Environment, Ministry of Construction; Mr. Poul E. Kristensen - International Consultant on Energy Efficiency, and members of the EECB’s PMU.
On behalf of the donor, there was Ms. Vu Thi Thu Hang – member of United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
Regarding CONINCO, there were Dr. Ha Minh - General Director; MSc., Nguyen Luong Binh - Deputy General Director, Deputy Director of CONINCO TOWER; Arch.

The EECB project's energy saving solutions in the construction industry will give practical solutions and energy saving techniques, train the design team and finally, demonstrate approaches which can be replicated and formulate a generation of energy saving projects in Vietnam in the future.
A MoU between the EECB and CONINCO has kicked off the close cooperation between the two sides, between technical experts of CONINCO as well as national and international experts of the EECB project in the field of energy saving. The project experts will guide and support CONINCO during the design and construction of new projects to achieve, even exceed the requirements of the Code 09: 2013.
At the signing ceremony, Dr. Ha Minh - General Director of CONINCO has expressed his great honor and pride when CONINCO TOWER project is one of eight projects selected to participate in demonstration of technology and energy saving solutions in the construction industry. The General Director once again committed that CONINCO will comply with the Memorandum of Understanding and expressed the appreciation to Dr. Le Trung Thanh as well as the EECB’s PMU to continue to support CONINCO in all aspects of the project implementation process.
The EECB project is implemented by the Ministry of Construction with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The project will contribute effectively to the implementation and effective application of Code 09: 2013/BXD "Energy Efficient Buildings" through the implementation of three components:
- Revision, modification and enhancement of the capacity to enforce national technical regulations - Energy Efficient Buildings;
- Innovation to support marketing development;
- Demonstration and replication of energy saving technology solutions in the construction industry.
Formally launched in April 2016, the EECB project aims to assist the Government of Viet Nam in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of the construction industry through policy support and promoting the application of scientific and technological solutions to construction works in order to save energy. Through these three components, the project aims to reduce 236,382 tonnes of CO2 for the next four years.
With the participation of representatives from the Ministry of Construction, UNDP, national and international experts, the MOU signing ceremony is a milestone marking the official technical support from the EECB project for the project of CONINCO TOWER.
