CAMARINES SUR — Tubig Pilipinas Group Inc. (TPGI) has been issued a Notice of Award on the P600 million joint venture project by the Nabua Water District (NAWAD) on January 30, 2019 for the overall design, construction, and management of the water supply and septage system of Nabua Water District in the Municipality of Nabua, Camarines Sur.
Tubig Pilipinas will be in charge of the water supply and septage systems of NAWAD for thirty years until the year 2049, and is renewable for another twenty years.
“We look forward to our partnership with Tubig Pilipinas. They have been serving sustainable waterworks systems all over the country and have proven to be capable of providing potable, safe and reliable water,” said Jayson Santiago Hernandez, Chairperson of Nabua Water District Joint Venture Selection Committee.
Tubig Pilipinas is one of the fastest growing bulk water suppliers, water distribution systems and wastewater management companies in the country today.
“We are beginning to build our footprint in Visayas, as this is our 4th project here. We have a bulk water project currently supplying Bacolod City and expanding to phase 2. Our operations in Cadiz City are set to supply 4,000 households which is home to 20,000 people, and another is the Calbayog City concession that we recently closed in December. Our joint venture with NAWAD will be a step closer to our goal of providing more efficient and cost effective water supply systems in the Philippines, especially to the underserved areas,” said Ryan Yapkianwee, President and CEO of TPGI.
