VERGNET HYDRO supplies manual pumps to provide over 150,000 Chadians with drinking water
Supply and installation of foot-operated pumps: 429 HPV60-2000 and 60 HPV100 “deep well” pumps
Chad’s Ministry of Economy, Development Planning and International Cooperation (MEPDIC) has called on VERGNET HYDRO for the supply and installation of 489 manual pumps and the construction and renovation of the 489 superstructures that will house them. These foot-operated pumps – 429 HPV60-2000 and 60 HPV100 “deep well” pumps – will ensure the day-to-day drinking water supply for over 150,000 inhabitants in rural parts of the Wadi-Fira, Logone Occidental and Tandjilé provinces.
Experience, the after-sales network and support for the repair technicians are what have made the difference
The local partners BATIFOR MEM and SOTCHAM, with support from the recently created company HYDROBAT MEM, are carrying out the civil engineering works and fitting the manual pumps. Meanwhile, VERGNET HYDRO is supplying the pumps, running a training programme to certify the repair technicians and will take charge of the HPV60-2000 and HPV100 spare part distribution network. “Our partners’ experience and knowledge of the field, our after-sales network and the support provided to the repair technicians are, once again, what have made the difference,” says a delighted Romain DUBREUIL, Area Sales Manager for VERGNET HYDRO in Chad.
With a total budget of €3.34 million (2.18 billion FCFA), this project is part of the Food and Nutritional Security Programme (SAN), funded by the European Development Fund (EUROPEAN UNION).
