23 September 2011

Lisbon, Portugal, 23 Sept – Portuguese company Aquapor has set up a subsidiary in Mozambique, Visaqua, to position itself as a “benchmark operator,” in the areas of water supply, sanitation and solid waste, the company said in a statement issued Thursday.

“Visaqua, owned by Aquapor and by Intelvisa (stake-holding company that, in its turn, is owned by Intelec and Visabeira), wants to be involved in all the business opportunities that emerge in Mozambique in the areas of management and exploration of public and private services,” the statement said.

José Teixeira, the chairman of Aquapor, said that Visaqua wanted to apply for “deals such as systems to capture, treat, channel, store and distribute water for consumption and for consumption, collection, treatment, rejection and recycling of effluents and, finally, collection, treatment and dumping of solid waste.”

The company’s strategic plan also includes entering other markets in the region such as South Africa.

On an international level, Aquapor has set up a partnership for the Angolan market with local company Greentech, where it also plans to provide “benchmark service” in the environmental sector (water supply, sanitation and solid waste). (macauhub)
