Namibia's President Hage Geingob has requested that France - with its advanced technology and greater industrial know how - assist Namibia in detecting water leaks and revamping the water pipeline infrastructure.

The country is currently losing 30 percent of its water through pipe leakages, and one of the main water pipelines, Naute-Keetmanshoop, frequently bursts leading to significant loss.

7.2 million Namibian dollars will be allocated to examine the nework: “The goal of the study is to identify major leakages and weak sections of the pipeline network in pilot areas and to set up tools for a long-term global policy and commitment for water infrastructure asset management,” Bassa Mazzoni, French Ambassador to Namibia said.

French company G2C has been awarded the study contract in Namibia.The studies will be carried out on the Von Bach-Windhoek, Omatako-Von Bach and Naute-Keetmanshoop water pipes.
