Prime Minister Bainimarama listening to the Project Report
The Rewa River Water Supply Project currently under construction is the third project signed in Fiji by PowerChina following Nadarivatu Renewable Energy Project and Vinisauluu Dam Upgrading Project. Sinohydro Bureau 10 - HDEC Joint Ventures undertake the DBO of the Project. In the area where the Project is located, 95% of the population uses the water only from two water plants. Once affected by season and other factors, both of them are basically in full load operation. The implementation of the Project will reduce the local dependence on the existing two water plants, relieve the water supply pressure of the capital of Fiji, guarantee the needs of nearly 300,000 persons for drinking and using clean water resources, and allow the local people to use the reassuring "Fijian Water".
