Engineering project authorised for the programme of extension and rehabilitation of the drinking water supply system of Asile (Haiti)

11 February, 2021

In the context of the contract signed with Haiti’s National Directorate of Potable Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) for the programme to extend and rehabilitate the drinking water supply system of the city of Asile (Haiti), approval has been obtained for the engineering project prepared by the technical department of Incatema Consulting & Engineering, and for the technical data sheets for the materials and equipment.

Now that the technical data sheets for the materials and equipment have been approved, the company can start with the process of buying the materials in Spain, for transportation to the Haitian city so that works can begin.

The contract in question is worth 1.5 million euros, with funding from the World Bank for Haiti’s National Directorate of Potable Water and Sanitation (DINEPA), and will be executed in a timeframe of 8 months.

Rehabilitation of the Drinking Water System for Asile will improve the access to potable water for more than 30,000 people while making use of solar energy. This represents an advance not only in relation to the United Nations’ Development Goal Number 6 to ensure access to clean water and sanitation everywhere in the world, but also in relation to the use of renewable energies, in pursuit of sustainability for the benefit of climate change, as previously reported here.
