Angola: Government Invests Akz 800 Million in Mineral Water Plant

Lubango — The Government of southern Huila province has invested Akz 800 million (Usd 8.0 million) in the construction of a mineral water factory called "Tundavala".

This is under a concession and exploration deal awarded on Thursday to the Angolan company "Interserviços" by the provincial governor, João Marcelino Tyipinge.

Built in the Tundavala tourist zone, the plant has three refilling lines. One for 20 litres bottles, another for one litre containers and the third for half litre.

The two first will have a capacity for 50,000 litres per 8/8 hours and the third for 4,000 bottles per hour.

Built under the Integrated Programme of Rural Development and Fight Against Poverty, the plant is equipped with a quality control laboratory, a water pump station, a refilling area and other facilities.

Speaking to the press after the signing of the concession and exploration deal, governor João Marcelino Tyipinge said the plant will enable the company and inhabitants of the region to cease the import of mineral water.

In her turn, Interseviços executive director, Rosa Rodrigues, said the factory has already started production and was just awaiting its formal hand-over.

With this plant, the number of such facility in Huila rises to three.
