Feb. 17, 2015

ROSEMONT, Ill. — The water treatment plant will provide drinking water to Rwanda’s capital, Kigali.

ROSEMONT, Ill. — The Water and Sanitation Corporation Ltd. (WASAC) in Rwanda has awarded Culligan® International a contract to design and install a water treatment plant, according to a press release.

The water treatment plant will provide drinking water to Kigali, Rwanda, the country’s capital, stated the release.

The plant is forecast to be completed by July, and will be designed to produce 6.6 million gallons per day (25,000 m3) with the ability to expand to 10.3 million gallons per day (39,000 m3) after performance results have been proven, reported the release.

Culligan will supply all design and engineering works, civil works, equipment and installations, and the new treatment plant will draw from the Nyabarongo River, the largest river in Rwanda and part of the Nile’s upper headwaters, as its raw water source, continued the release.

“Culligan is honored by the faith that WASAC has placed in our experience, expertise and capabilities to deliver this plant, which represents a critical piece of infrastructure for this growing city,” said Laurence Bower, senior vice president EMEA, Culligan. “We look forward to working with our colleagues at WASAC as we move forward with this important project.”

WASAC, a government company, provides water to Kigali as well as all urban centers in Rwanda, noted the release.
