Gabon to Build 140 m3/d Drinking Water Plant
Libreville – The Gabonese government signed, earlier this week in Geneva, a memorandum of understanding with the Pan-African Industrial group ERANOVE for the conception, construction, financing, exploitation and maintenance of a new plant for water production and treatment near the city of Libreville.
The 140.000 m3/d plant will be fed by the Komo River, located between the cities of Kango and Ntoum (South).
The agreement, signed by the Gabonese Strategic Investment Fund, (GSIF), sets the terms of cooperation aimed at examining the economic, environmental and technical feasibility studies, as well as the structuring of the funding plan, the Gabonese Press Agency (GPA) reports.
The agreement establishes a key stage in the process initiated by Gabonese authorities to improve water supply to Libreville and its outskirts in a bid to meet the growing needs of the population, according to the same source.
