Kigali bulk water supply, Rwanda

We were appointed by the International Finance Corporation to provide technical advisor and transactional advisory services for a sustainable bulk water supply infrastructure project to serve the rapidly developing city of Kigali in Rwanda.

Kigali is home to a million people but only 30% of households were connected to the city’s mains water network. With connection rates increasing and urban development advancing rapidly, the city needed reliable, sustainable sources of supply plus improved wastewater management and treatment infrastructure.

While infrastructure needs were clear, the project had to be affordable and capable of delivering return on investment. We set out to control costs by breaking the project up into clearly defined phases.

This involved our engineering, water management and infrastructure finance capabilities: our team identified potential water sources, forecast demand and identified the optimum technical solutions for supply and sanitation.

Alongside this, we advised on procurement, drew up plans for stakeholder consultation, scoped the project and drew up specifications as well as contract documentation.

We used our skills in water management, engineering and project finance to forecast demand and identify potential water sources and optimum technical solutions.
