CES starts the New Year with two new contracts in Kenya and Mozambique
In Kenya CES in consortium with AHT (Germany) and MIBP (Kenya) has been awarded with the preparation of a Feasibility Study for the Lake Nakuru Biodiversity Conservation Project to develop an integrative approach for the sustainable protection of the existing biodiversity of the lake’s flora and fauna. A water management concept considering the area’s water demand, the water regime of the highly sensitive alkaline Lake Nakuru and the significance of the Lake as Ramsar Site needs to be developed to conserve the unique ecosystem. The investment packages to be designed aim at reduction of environmental pollution by inadequate collection and treatment of sewage and solid waste. The Lake Nakuru National Park is currently under pressure by land use and utilization of natural resources reflecting the different competing interests in the area. Accompanying measures are to be identified and designed which shall improve wildlife conservation in the Park. In a holistic way and under full consideration of the do-no-harm approach appropriate measures shall be developed to improve Park Management, allow limited and sustainable utilization of natural resources for the neighboring population, open the Park areas to create a network with adjacent valuable or protected areas (wildlife corridors) among others.
A large scale TVET programme in Mozambique has been awarded to the consortium CES/ICON/ATEC led by CES. The programme includes two main components, an infrastructure component A and an accompanying measures component B. Component A is designed as an open programme, i.e. TVET institutes in the provinces Manica, Sofala and Inhambane will be identified to be included in the programme for rehabilitation and upgrading incl. equipment and teaching tools. The Consultant will undertake selection, design, tendering and supervision activities within the 48 months project course. Component B is dedicated to the development and implementation of TVET development and Monitoring Plans, Training needs assessment and implementation of trainings of management staff and teachers, develop job counseling and alumni networking approaches and initiate and implement tracer studies to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme.
The overall objective of the Joint German TVET Program is to increase the sustainable (self-) employment of skilled workers. The Project measures comprise the procurement of equipment, the rehabilitation/ extension of existing facilities and the strengthening of the management of the selected public TVET institutions.
Target group of the Program are graduates having completed nine years of basic education, students from the poorer segment of the labour force, drop outs of the academic education system as well as the socially vulnerable. Priority sectors for the TVET Program are: Agriculture and Food Processing, Information and Communications Technology, Construction and Building Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Arts and Crafts and Renewable Energy.
Three outputs are to be implemented:
1. At least 6 public TVET institutions shall be rehabilitated, extended and equipped according to competency-based training (CBT) standards and provide the relevant training
2. The management of the Program school is strengthened with regard to an efficient and sustainable operation of the school
3. The concept to support private TVET schools through output/ results-based (ex-post) per capita allowances is under implementation (financed by the Innovation Fund)
CES supports 6 Albanian water utilities
The Municipal Infrastructre Programmes III and IV aim at improvement of water and wastewater infrastructure in 6 cities in Albania and include a major institutional strengthening component to support the utilities in achieving the defined goals for funding of the investments.
CES will support in the first phase the six utilities in preparation of business plans and tariff adjustment plans as well as in establishing an operation & maintenance action plan. Phase 2 will be dedicated to the implementation of these plans in order to achieve the defined performance indicators over a period of 4 years.
The project is being implemented by a consortium consisting of CES as lead company, Consulaqua from Hamburg, Germany and SE Studio from Tirana.
CES starts business in Moldova
APA Chișinău has awarded a comprehensive Feasibility Study funded by KfW to CES with the objective to improve the water supply of a beneficiary population of approx.. 170,000 inhabitants in the rayons Strășeni and Călărași in Moldova.
Over a period of 12 months the project team will investigate the availability of water resources from the existing Chișinău WTP and options for transmission to the two rayons. The existing water supply and wastewater infrastructure in the rayons will be assessed and measures for rehabilitation, reduction of NRW and extension will be elaborated. Connection of communities along the transmission main shall be included in the considerations. The study includes a comprehensive institutional and financial analysis prepared by CES’ consortium partner BDO Romania.

CES has been awarded a contract to carry out a prefeasibility study in the northern region of Namibia
The study is financed by the German Development Bank (KFW) and is carried out in close partnership with SADC.
It intends to investigate alternatives for the improvement of the existing conveyance channel starting from Calueque dam in Angola to Oshakati for about 100km. The study covers besides engineering and hydraulic/hydrological aspects as well environmental and social issues, since the channel is the only water source within this region. The channel provides water actually for both water supply and irrigation. CES carries out this study in cooperation with the Namibian company Lithon Ltd.
