The positive results shown after the 1.5 years implementation of the project Integrated Asset Management for Water Utilities in South-Eastern Europe and the recommendation from the independent Mid-term review (May 2018), convinced the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Hydro-Comp Enterprises Ltd. to provide further support.
Namely, the project has been expanded to two more countries – Albania and Kosovo with the duration until November 2021. With the additional budget of €2.1M, also the activities in the current participating countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia) will be extended until November 2021.
The targeted number of utilities in all 6 countries in South-Eastern Europe increases to more than 100 (double on the current 52 participating utilities).
This is a confirmation how important is the practicing of the proper Integrated Asset Management in the public utilities in South-Eastern Europe.
