PERNAM JSC

Perfect Vietnam Consulting Engineering and Construction Joint Stock Company (Pernam JSC) specializes in advanced groundwater and surface treatment technology from the Netherlands. We implement revolutionary smart water solutions into new and existing water systems.

Pernam was established in 2010 from its parent company Holland Water Supply Company (HOWACO). In 2015 Pernam changed its entity into a joint stock company. We are a consulting, design and construction company that specializes in innovative, sustainable, environmental friendly water treatment technology.

Pernam JSC implements non-chemical groundwater treatment technology in the removal of Iron, Manganese, Arsenic, Ammonium and pH adjustment. We also offer brackish water treatment with advanced RO technology achieving a permeate efficiency of 80-85%. For surface water treatment we offer the Perfector and Micro Hydraulic technology. Both these technologies use an advanced hydraulic design during the coagulation, flocculation and sedimentation process. The key advantages of these technologies are simple operation and low maintenance resulting in low investment and operating costs. We are proud to be the first company to implement these technologies in Vietnam.

Recently we have successfully completed other types of projects such as non revenue water reduction and improvement of management and operational efficiency of water systems.
