Five local authorities have renewed their trust in Société Guyanaise des Eaux (SGDE).
The Société Guyanaise des Eaux’s offer has been selected by:
The Communauté d’Agglomération of Centre Littoral de Guyane (Cayenne) for water services,
Kourou for water and sanitation services,
Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni for sanitation services,
Mana for water and sanitation services,
Saint-Georges de l’Oyapock for water services.
Significant investments into the contract with the Communauté d’Agglomération of Centre Littoral de Guyane
In order to offer water services of ever greater quality, 16 million euros will be invested under the contract signed by SGDE and the Communauté d’Agglomération of Centre Littoral de Guyane. This investment will enable the company to renovate drinking water networks and implement social measures to provide access to water for highly vulnerable people.
Smart meters in Kourou
Kourou’s twenty-year contract includes construction of a solar greenhouse and rollout of smart meters using “ON connect” technology. François Ringuet, mayor of Kourou, explained, “the relationship of trust we maintain with SGDE and the innovative nature of their offer, which met our specifications perfectly, were the key elements in our choice of water and sanitation service provider for the next twenty years.”
SUEZ also plans to launch a 360° monitoring centre for water and sanitation services for the entire Guyane. The centre will improve service performance across the board. Thanks to continuous collection of a wide range of data, the “VISIO centre” will enable users to monitor water services in real time. It also promises shorter response times for network maintenance work and better sharing of information with local authorities.
Thanks to the professionalism and expertise of its employees, Société Guyanaise des Eaux enjoys a strong relationship of trust with local authorities. SUEZ and SGDE will rapidly bring new solutions, both in terms of managing facilities and developing digital technology. The aim of SGDE is to offer increasingly efficient water services using the most innovative technologies.
