Botswana’s 100km Pipe line project
The Khato Civils/South Zambezi/Evolution Engineering JV (KCSZEEJV) has been appointed by the Water Utilities Corporation (WUC) in Botswana to design, and construct a Transmission Water Pipeline of approximately 100 km from Masama Well fields to Mmamashia Water Treatment Plant in Gaborone, to convey 64Ml/day of Borehole water abstracted from both Masama East and West Wellfields. The pipeline comprises a 1.15km x 700mm nominal diameter and 81.9km x 1 000mm nominal diameter Spigot & Socketed Mild (Low Carbon) Steel Pipes. This pipeline will augment water demand in water stressed areas within the Greater Gaborone corridor; including Lobatse/ Barolong, Thamaga/ Moshupa/Kanye, Molepolole, Mochudi/Bokaa catchment areas. This twelve months project commenced on the 01st May 2020.
