Cape Town, South Africa, 17 Oct – South African firm Intaka tech has signed a contract worth US$29 million with the Angolan authorities to build water purification plants to produce 78 million litres of drinking water daily, company sources said.

The purification centers are part of the Angolan government’s “Water for All” project aimed to benefit some 2.6 million people in the initial phase of the scheme.

Intaka Tech, based in Cape Town, said each purification plant will supply 1.1 million litres of drinking water per day.

“The purification plants are easy to install and transport, with low operating costs and easy maintenance”, the South African company said.

Intaka Tech also said has opened an office in Angola to handle maintenance and training for the project. (macauhub)
