Top Water Project in Botswana
North-South Carrier Water Transfer Project
The second phase of the project, NSC-2, on which Bigen started working in 2012, entailed the completion of a water transfer strategy feeding on various dams, existing or newly emerging from the first phase completed in 1999. This includes four pumping systems.
From the start, the Botswana government relied extensively on Bigen as the employer’s representative for guidance as to the best possible technical solutions for NSC-2. The Group successfully met many challenges in terms of planning, logistics and construction, and maintained a high level of innovation and problem solving with regard to both construction and aesthetics.
For this project, Bigen won the annual Best International Project award from the Consulting Engineers South Africa in 2015.
