The project involves providing technical support to EASCN (Empresa de Água e Saneamento de Cuanza Norte) to manage the drinking water networks in N’Dalatando, capital of the province of Cuanza Norte in Angola. The goal is to expand service coverage from 9,000 connections at the start of the project to reach 14,000 in 2017. The network comprises 130 km of pipelines and is supplied by a 5,000 m³ reservoir connected to a treatment plant with an 8,000 m³/day capacity.

Following a competitive bidding process, the renewable energy development company Andhra Pradesh Limited selected JITF Urban Infrastructure Ltd. (JUIL) to design three energy recovery plants in the cities of Guntur, Visakhapatnam, and Tirupati in the south of India. JUIL chose Seureca to prepare the detailed project reports for these three new plants.
Zambia
This project is part of the Lusaka Water Supply, Sanitation and Drainage Project (LWSSDP) funded by the U.S. government through the Millennium Challenge Corporation, which aims to improve the living conditions of the population of Zambia’s capital. The project’s objective is to assist Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) to reduce water losses from an estimated 48% to a target value of 25%. Efforts are focused on defi ning strategic action plans and deploying tools and methods with continuous transfer of skills and knowledge to local teams.

Walkers Crisps is the Pepsico Group’s potato chip production unit. It started a thermophilic anaerobic digester with a capacity of approximately 4,500 m³ in early 2016 to recycle organic solid waste (potato chips, peelings, starch) by cogeneration. There were a number of start-up issues resulting in reduced digestion efficiency and partial treatment of available solid waste which impacted cogeneration performance and reliability.
Guinea
In 2012, the Guinean government adopted a recovery plan, which is currently being implemented. It intends to sustainably recover the electricity sector in Guinea and, more particularly, Electricité de Guinée (EDG), through the implementation of a 1.3 billion-dollar program to develop thermal and hydroelectric generation assets and networks.

Noumea’s new hospital, the Médipôle de Koutio, is an unprecedented project in New Caledonia. This 82,000 m² center, located on a 15-hectare site covers over half of New Caledonia’s healthcare offer. Before the arrival of the first patients, the medical center wanted its technical teams and hygiene departments to be accompanied during the trial run phase of the water and air facilities with the objective of preventing any risk of contamination once the new hospital opened to the public.
Georgia
The Kvemo Kartli region is implementing a plan to upgrade the collection and treatment of solid waste. The program is fi nanced with loans from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Swedish grants. The stakeholders in this project are the Solid Waste Management Corporation Georgia (locally called the SWMCG), which will be building and operating a new regional landfill site compliant with European regulations, and the towns of Marneuli, Bolnisi, Dmanisi, Tetritskaro, and Tsalka, which will be responsible for collecting and transporting solid waste to the new treatment site. The objective is to improve the collection while requiring residents and businesses to comply with the polluter pays principle. This measure should allow the waste management company and the towns to eventually achieve a balanced budget.
France
After conducting an audit of its wastewater system and preparing a master plan, the town of Culan (Cher county) entrusts Seureca with the complete project management to implement the works program. The presence of a medieval castle classified as a historical monument nearby led to particularly delicate environmental constraints.
Moldova
Termoelectrica, an urban district heating company located in Chişinău, is assisted by Seureca to improve network investment planning and customer service management. This implies changing from a production-driven system to a demand-driven system. A pilot project was developed to study the feasibility and impact of energy efficiency measures: individual building and housing unit control and implementation of individual billing.
