WOP: PDAM Tirta Kencana - Penang Water Supply Corporation
July 03, 2014
WaterLinks, with support from USAID through the WaterLinks Alliance activity, proposes to facilitate a WOP between PBAPP and Tirta Kencana focusing on improving water distribution system in Samarinda (Indonesia). PBAPP from Malaysia is highly recognized in the region by its excellent water supply distribution network with the lowest NRW rate in the nation. Expected to last between 12-15 months, this WOP will help build the capacity of Tirta Kencana to manage NRW and pressure, enable continuous water supply, and recognize practical innovations and technologies employed by PBAPP. WaterLinks proposes the WOP to benefit at least 12,000 customers.
