Pouyanne says Anadarko Africa assets at heart of Total’s strategy
Four new electric generators have been acquired by the government of Sofala province through the Fund for Investment and Water Supply Assets (FIPAG) to minimize the problems caused by power cuts at water supply pumping stations in Beira and Dondo.
Provincial government spokesperson Lénio Mendonça said that the generators, worth about 41 million meticais, were bought for a project to rehabilitate the Beira and Dondo water supply systems, including the replacement of pipes and water tanks in Dinguidingui in Dondo district.
Mendonça explained that Beira and Dondo are currently facing serious water supply problems as a result of ongoing power cuts and the poor quality of power supply, which has led to low water pressure in some areas.
At 76 percent, water coverage in Beira and Dondo still falls short of needs because of considerable population growth recently.
Mendonça, who is also provincial economy and finance director for Sofala, added that the executive applauds the progress of the works, currently standing at 80 percent complete and expected to meet deadlines.
“The works are progressing satisfactorily. What is needed now is the replacement of pipes, because the existing ones are in an advanced state of decay, leading to much waste. The completion of these works will give the citizens of Beira and Dondo drinking-quality water,” Mendonça said.Source: Notícias
