New Caledonia : SUEZ renews two drinking water distribution contracts

The municipalities of Païta and Mont-Dore in New Caledonia have renewed their trust in SUEZ, through its subsidiary, Calédonienne des Eaux (CDE), by awarding the contracts for the distribution of drinking water. The two ten-year contracts, worth a total of €50 million, came into effect on 1 January 2019.

Calédonienne des Eaux drew on the expertise of the SUEZ Group to implement a modernised, innovative and efficient water distribution service.

  • The main innovation in these two contracts is the roll-out of connected water meters. This solution allows for the real-time measurement of consumption and a leak alert system. This technology will provide the inhabitants with more control over their water bills and help protect the environment through the responsible use of water resources.


  • Located in Païta since July 2017, the “VISIO” monitoring centre optimises the management of the service through real-time supervision and the continuous collection of data. It enables more responsive planning of interventions in the field and greater sharing of information with the local authorities.
