November 11th, 2014 "Technical assistance of “Nigeria Federal Capital Territory Reduction of Non-Revenue Water Project”"

YWC contracted Japan International Cooperation Agency’s (JICA) “Nigeria Federal Capital Territory Reduction of Non-Revenue Water Project” through joint venture with YACHIYO ENGENEERING CO., LTD.

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is located in the central of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Federal Capital Territory Water Board (FCTWB) has developed water supply system based on water supply master plan prepared in 1980. Although new water supply facilities were recently constructed to meet increasing water demand by mass-migration and urbanization, non-revenue water (NRW) in FCT is estimated at 38%.

FCTWB in charge of operation and maintenance has not taken effective actions against NRW because of its shortage of experience, knowledge and qualified personnel on planning and execution of NRW reduction. Improvement in NRW is a key issue in water supply services.

Under the circumstance, the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN) requested technical cooperation to the Government of Japan in order to strengthen NRW reduction capacity of FCTWB.

The term of the project will be three and half years from October 2014. YWC will support strengthening of NRW reduction capacity of FCTWB by sending expert team and inviting FCTWB staff for training in Japan with know-how and knowledge of Yokohama  Waterworks Bureau.
