(Togo First) - Togo’s ministry of water recently provided a contract valued at XOF194 million to ECM Sarl, a solar power specialized firm, and Vergnet Hydro, French firm that provides safe water supply systems and pumping equipment to rural areas especially.

Under the contract, solar-powered drinking water supply systems are to be installed in Nadiégou, Polougou, Kankangbane and Djalière, villages located in the Savanes region.

Boreholes are very deep so pumps will be installed at a depth of 165m-220m, said Joël Ménager, Head of Proposals at Vergnet Hydro, explaining the need for partnership with ECM Sarl. “Providing safe water to the people of these villages by harnessing solar power will enable our two companies show their technical know-how, added Thierry Barbotte, Managing Director, Vergnet Hydro.

The contract falls under a project to improve sanitary conditions in rural areas and schools across the Savanes region (PASSCO). The latter is steered and funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).

All water systems should be installed in September 2019.
