Chinese project will bring drinking water to 600,000 inhabitants in Cabinda

A Chinese contractor has completed a project that will ensure the supply of drinking water to around 600,000 inhabitants of Cabinda, Angola's northernmost province.


The supply system, implemented by the Chinese state-owned group China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC), is made up of 74 centralized points, with a capacity to supply 50,000 cubic meters of water per day.

The project will cover 24,000 families in 92 percent of urban areas in Cabinda, helping to alleviate the shortage of drinking water in areas such as local industries, schools and port transport, Chinese state news agency Xinhua said.

In October 2020, the CRCC announced that it had completed the main works of a water distribution network to serve the capital of the province of Cabinda.

The Chinese group said it had installed a cast iron pipe at a depth of six meters in the Upper Zone of the city of Cabinda, thus closing the primary distribution network, with an extension of 88 kilometres.

The CRCCO also mentioned that strengthening the water supply system to Cabinda would improve the quality of water supplied to around 30,000 inhabitants of the capital and the neighboring district of Lândana.

The contractor said he would complete the installation of the secondary water distribution network, with a length of 200 kilometres, which includes fountains and domestic connection branches.

The drinking water supply system, the largest of its kind under construction in Angola, was awarded in 2016 to the CRCC, in a contract worth 88.8 million dollars.

In January, President João Lourenço had also authorized the opening of a public tender for the construction of 43 high water tanks with a capacity of 100 cubic meters in Cabinda Province, worth 2.5 billion kwanzas.

In August 2021, the CRCC announced that it had won a contract for the construction of electrical substations that will supply electricity to manganese mines in Malanje province, in western Angola.
