Sogea-Satom (VINCI Construction International Network) handed over a first part of the Ziga drinking-water production plant project in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in mid-March 2017.
Being implemented in a joint venture with Suez International on behalf of the national water and drainage authority (ONEA), the project involves increasing the amount of drinking water the existing plant can produce to supply the capital. The works include the construction of a pumping station and a treatment plant (7,500 cu. metres/hour), as well an 11,000 cu. metre reservoir.
This partial handover will mean cuts in the city’s drinking water supply can be avoided during the hot season (March to May). All works will be completed in July 2017.
At this same site, ONEA had already entrusted the first phase of the construction of the plant to the same joint venture in 1998, and Sogea- Satom was also involved in the construction of the Ziga Dam in 2002.
