7 April, 2021

Incatema Consulting & Engineering has started to install the supply pipes, and is continuing with the installation of the distribution network for the works to rehabilitate and expand the potable water system in the city of Hinche (Haiti). This project falls within the larger bilateral Spanish Cooperation programme, with a budget of 3.5 million euros funded by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation and by the National Directorate for Drinking Water and the Water Supply of Haiti (DINEPA).

The arrival of new materials from Spain despite the difficulties associated with the pandemic, makes it possible to proceed with the planned works at the contemplated pace, which will allow the works to be concluded this year. “In spite of the difficulties that the country is going through, and given its especially vulnerable situation, it is essential to move forward in developing infrastructures that give the population access to drinking water. In this regard, Incatema has been working in Haiti since 2000 to improve in this direction, pursuing the mandate of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda”, asserted Fernando Díaz, the company’s Director of Infrastructures.

The project to rehabilitate and expand the potable water supply in the city of Hinche, will deliver water to more than 30,000 people in a country that has the lowest Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita in America, and where 70% of the population is immersed in poverty, as previously reported here
