Project to convey water from the river Nile
Context & Issues

The project to transfer water from the Nile is part of the project to extend a mining site.

The current water resources (tube wells) are insufficient and it has proved essential to look for a resource located further away from the site.

  • 170 km long DN 500 mm pipeline
  • Pumping stations (capacity: from 500 kW to 2 MW)
  • Reservoirs (from 300 to 1 000 m³)
