The Government of Seychelles has received funding from the European Investment Bank (EIB), the European Union, African Water Facility, the French Development Agency (AFD) and other funding agencies towards the cost of the Seychelles Water & Sanitation Project under the program known as Project NEPTUNE.

The main objective of the programme is to alleviate water shortages through renewal and expansion of water supply on the three main islands to reduce water loss, improve energy efficiency and increase resilience of water supply to climate change, including capacity building of the involved key actors.

 

In January 2014 SGI was awarded the “Consultancy Services for Design and Construction Supervision of Water Treatment Plants and Measurement Weirs Rehabilitation”.

This is the second contract awarded to the Company under the Project NEPTUNE, the first one being the NRW Reduction Program.

 

The Water Treatment Plants and Measurement Weirs Rehabilitation is one of the key components of the Project NEPTUNE, and it is structured as follows:

 

Phase A (6 months): Design of Cascade and Hermitage Water Treatment Plants Rehabilitation measures, Measurement Weirs rehabilitation measures, Preparation of the EIA Report, and Preparation of Tender Documents.

 

Phase B (13 months): Assistance to the Public Utility Company of Seychelles (PUC) during tender period and tender appraisal, contract negotiation and contract award, contract administration, and construction supervision of the works. The project also includes capacity building for PUC staff in the project implementation, operation of the water and sanitation systems, as well as design and implementation of environmental, water resources and disaster mitigation and management systems.
