In June 2015 the Embassy of Finland in Hanoi awarded WSP Finland in recognition of the company’s creative and successful bridge design projects in different parts of Vietnam. The yearly award is given to a person or a company that has made a substantial creative contribution to the relationship between Finland and Vietnam.
For more than 20 years, WSP Finland has been involved in Vietnam in many different projects including bridges. The company has designed the Binh (completed in 2005) and Rao II (2012) Bridges in Hai Phong and the beautiful Tran Thi Ly Bridge in Da Nang (2013). At the moment WSP Finland is working on the Thu Thiem II Bridge at the very center of Ho Chi Minh City.
“WSP Finland has made a very valuable contribution to the relationship between Finland and Vietnam over the years. Their creative Nordic vision and sensitive attitude towards the local context has produced extraordinary functional beauty”, said Ambassador Kimmo Lähdevirta.
“The way WSP Finland has worked with its Vietnamese partners provides an excellent example of the knowhow and co-operation that brings tangible benefits to both parties”, Ambassador Lähdevirta added.
“It is a great honor for WSP Finland to receive this award. We are especially pleased that we are recognized for our achievements in Vietnam, which is a country where we have worked for many years and where we also have several interesting projects going on at the moment”, said Managing Director Kirsi Hautala from WSP Finland.
