South-South Cooperation is a term historically used to describe the exchange of resources, technology, and knowledge between developing countries, also known as countries of the Global South. Intaka Tech, located in South Africa, is proud to be part of this South-South Cooperation principle, which shows that African countries, such as Gabon, are looking at African solutions instead of the traditional cooperation with European countries.
The commissioning of the three water treatment plants took place around the time that the Gabonese People celebrated Independence Day on the 17th August, a good time to launch the treatment plants into official service. The treatment plants are located in the towns of Pana, Bakoumba and Lemengue and have respective treatment capacities of 25000l/h, 25000l/h and 6000/hr.
The commissioning of the plants included the training of Intaka’s Partner’s staff, so that local support structures are ensured and that ongoing training is available as and when required. Intaka’s partner will ensure the ongoing technical support, backed up by Intaka, and training of operators in their own languages.
Intaka is confident that its water treatment solutions provide viable and cost effective treatment solutions across Africa, and look forward to further South-South Cooperation with the Gabonese Government and other African Countries.
