New drinking water facilities will be constructed in a number of Tanzanian cities by Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Construction. On April 19, 2022, the Tanzanian government and the Indian multinational announced an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) agreement.
Due to new facilities, the availability of drinking water is anticipated to increase in Tanzanian cities. The Tanzanian state granted Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Construction the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract. The treatment of wastewater and water is a specialty of the Indian multinational.
The contract requires L&T Construction to construct a raw water intake and water treatment facility with a combined daily capacity of 71,000 m3.
Six reservoirs will also be built by the firm, including one for raw water storage and five for drinking water. The 263 km of pipelines that will be laid in various cities are also covered by the contract. The corresponding electromechanical work that needs to be done in the various facilities will also fall under the purview of Larsen & Toubro Construction. To pay for all of the work, the company will rely on financing from Exim Bank of India. The financing is worth between $13 million and $33 million, or 1,000 and 2,500 million rupees.
Tanzania will get closer to the government’s aim when the water project is put into action. By 2025, the nation hopes to improve access to clean water to 93 percent of the population.
The Dodoma Resilient and Sustainable Water Development and Sanitation Program and the installation of 235 water points in the Tanga region of northeastern Tanzania are just a few of the projects that the urban drinking water project in Tanzania participates. The settlements of Pangani, Korogwe, Lushoto, Kilindi, Mkinga, Muheza, and Handeni will receive 95,043 people’s benefit from the future amenities when they are delivered.
