Libreville water supply

Contract: Libreville water supply


In terms of access to drinking water, the Gabonese Republic is the leading African country south of the Sahara. Even the distribution of drinking water through household connections has reached an exemplary level. The Republic of Gabon is determined to maintain this lead and to expand it further. With this in mind, GAUFF Engineering is performing a technical examination of Libreville's drinking water supply grid.


The project is designed to reduce water loss significantly. In addition, the overall supply of drinking water is to be improved. Immediate measures are designed to bring about noticeable improvements within six months. The construction work to be performed throughout the entire project is closely linked to the immediate measures.
