The establishment of the mega water treatment plant will not only serve the growing population in the east of Kampala but will also alleviate water-borne diseases due to availability of clean water for domestic use and other consumption.
Sogea Satom , a French company dealing in road construction, civil engineering and hydraulics,is a major investor in the industrial sector and has played an essential role in establishing key typical projects in Africa, and this has eventually earned it a good reputation hence becoming a reliable force to be reckoned with.
The French Government has continually shown its prevalent support and interest in the East African region by unveiling plans to cater for the water infrastructure investment in the east of Kampala.
Prior to landing the water treatment contract, Sogea Satom has been a key player in a number of projects in Uganda making it a reliable company to be picked up for the infrastructure development project.
