Consulting engineers SRK have been involved in the geotechnical studies for a proposed export processing zone near Hai-Phong on the east coast of Vietnam. The envisaged developments will involve, among other things, reclaiming 5 km2 of paddy fields and fish ponds with roughly 10 million m3 of dredged fill placed to a height of about 3 m. Settlements of the underlying alluvial deposits, up to 45 m deep, are a potential problem. This is aggravated if settlement times are excessive, as the development time must be short for the project to be economically viable.
