Incatema attends the water exhibition of Jacmel (Haiti)

11 May, 2021

Incatema Consulting & Engineering has taken part in the Regional Water and Sanitation Exhibition of Jacmel, held in this Haitian town on 24 and 25 April. Jacmel is one of the cities in the country where the company stood up to the challenge of improving the supply of potable water to the population following the earthquake that devastated the island in 2010.

The first of these projects was to rehabilitate and extend the drinking water supply network in the city of Ouanaminthe that very same year, followed by the project to supply drinking water to the city of Jacmel, where works commenced in 2013.

The exhibition also reflected Incatema’s star project in terms of the Circular Economy. It relates to the construction and maintenance of the Caracol Industrial Park domestic waste water treatment plant, an installation that self-purifies by using macrophyte plants, with the ensuing energy saving.

Other works by the company executed on the island and displayed at the fair were the project to supply water to the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince, the largest works executed at the time by Haiti’s National Directorate of Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) and the construction of intakes, adduction, pump station and chlorination plant for the tanks in the city of Aquin. Currently the projects to rehabilitate and extend the potable water system in the city of Hinche; to rehabilitate the potable water system of Jérémie city and the project to expand and rehabilitate the drinking water system of the city of L’Asile are underway.

For Incatema’s representative in Haiti, Juan Luis Marcos, “the exhibition has been a chance to show all the work done by the company in Haiti, a product of our unquestionable commitment to supply drinking water to the local population, moreover in the context of a pandemic when it is especially important to reinforce sanitary hygiene measures, especially if we take into account that more than 40% of the population cannot access an improved source of drinking water, as established by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Unicef.”
