The first phase of the project to supply drinking water to the regions of Sinfra and Gagnoa was inaugurated on September 24 2020 by President Alassane Ouattara.
This project, financed by the French Treasury and AFD, aims to build a major drinking water supply system from the perennial resource of the Bandama River in Zambakro for the benefit of localities located along and in the close vicinity of the Zambakro - Sinfra - Gagnoa road axis.
By 2035, this increase in drinking water production capacity will benefit to more than 1 million people in the Center-West region of Côte d'Ivoire.
The Water and Ports activity of Egis initiated this project within the framework of a FASEP and since 2016 has been the Project Management Assistant (AMO) of the Ivorian Ministry of Hydraulics.
In this capacity, our teams developed the regional master plan and the preliminary design studies, then supervised the design-build work carried out by the Sade-Razel consortium.
The work consisted in designing :
The production plant is up and running and the water towers are 80% complete.
Egis will continue until the supply network is fully commissioned, scheduled for March 2021.
