News MOROCCO: KfW lends €55.5 million to Onee for several water projects in the Kingdom

Morocco’s National Electricity and Drinking Water Authority (Onee) has new funds to use to advance its projects. They were obtained through a loan from the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), the German development agency. The loan agreements were recently signed between Abderrahim El Hafidi, General Manager of Onee, Jorg Dux, Head of Water Division, North Africa of KfW, and Markus Faschina, Director of KfW’s office in Morocco.

The funds allocated to Onee by KfW will be used to implement Phase I of Component II of the Drinking Water Supply Programme for Small and Medium-sized Centres. In concrete terms, €28.5 million has been allocated to strengthen the supply of drinking water in several localities in this North African country. On the technical level, these are the reinforcement of pumping stations, treatment plants, reservoirs and the distribution network. Onee estimates that this project will benefit 1.5 million people in Morocco.
