Exemplary cooperation between France and the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority
As part of Jean-Marc Ayrault’s trip to Cambodia on 3 and 4 February 2013, the French delegation visited the Chroy Changvar drinking water production plant in Phnom Penh, one of the three sites that supplies the city of Phnom Penh.
The visit was organised jointly by Kheat Chhon, the Deputy Prime Minister, Sim Sitha, the Chief Executive Officer of Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority (PPWSA), SAFEGE, which oversaw the construction of the plant, and the French Development Agency (AFD), which financed the project.
During the visit, Jean-Marc Ayrault underlined the exemplary cooperation between France (represented by the AFD and SAFEGE) and the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority (PPWSA).
A leading player in the development of sustainable cities and regions, SAFEGE has acquired all shares in EXPLICIT, following an initial partnership agreement signed in July 2010.
The result of almost four years of close cooperation between the two companies, this operation consolidates SAFEGE's expertise in the fields of rational energy use, energy performance, the development of renewable energies and adaptation to climate change, areas in which EXPLICIT has been recognised for over 20 years and for which it has developed a range of scientific tools.
This acquisition supplements and enhances SAFEGE's support services within the context of the sustainable development of cities and regions, enabling it to offer its customers project management assistance covering all of their energy and environmental issues, from strategy discussion to operational support.
