POWERCHINA to continue improving water supply in Fiji

Updated: April 16,2024

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Sigatoka water supply pipeline project, undertaken by POWERCHINA, took place on April 12 at Vusama village in Sigatoka, Fiji.

Due to the impacts of climate change, aging infrastructure, and rapid increases in population and economic development, ensuring a continuous and stable water supply is crucial for residents in the Sigatoka area.

The Sigatoka water supply pipeline project involves laying a total length of 15.72 kilometers of PE pipelines in three villages: Waibogi, Vusama, and Nadrala, and is scheduled to be completed within 44 weeks.

The project is expected to improve the water supply in the Sigatoka area, meeting residents' water needs and enhancing the region's water supply infrastructure.

During the ceremony, Ro Filipe Tuisawau, minister of Public Works, Transport and Meteorological Services in Fiji, acknowledged POWERCHINA as a trusted international contractor with a highly experienced management team. He also expressed confidence that the water supply conditions in villages near Sigatoka will also improve greatly in the near future.
