Water loss management courses convene.

... AMMAN (Star)--In the framework of the Public Private Partnership project (PPP) "Effective Pressure Management for Technical Water Loss Reduction in Ain Al-Basha" with VAG Armaturen GmbH a training course was conducted on Pressure Management. The training course comprised a training of trainers to secure the anchoring of the knowledge in Jordan. Necessary and state of the art training material was provided to the training centre of Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ), where WAJ handed over the certificates to the successful trainers. Since the beginning of 2006 the German Development Cooperation through its implementing agency GTZ together with renowned private water sector companies and in close cooperation with the WAJ has been implementing innovative Public Private Partnership projects Jordan. PPPs are projects which are jointly planned and implemented by GTZ and a private partner, and the costs also being shared by these two partners. Together with the German company VAG Armaturen--one of the top valve manufacturers in the world--GTZ has started this project in Ain Al-Basha in 2007, by transferring an innovative technology and developing a training module on effective pressure management the projects objective is to reduce the number of leakages and pipe bursts in the network. Water loss reduction will result in the conservation of the precious water resources of the Kingdom, in higher security of supplies and lower costs for operations and repair. The first data confirmed the high potential for water saving in Jordan through this innovative technology, with water input savings of approximately 10 percent. The results will be publicly presented end of July. The water sector of Jordan offers a vast number of opportunities for private sector participation that can potentially lead to synergies between all organisations involved. PPPs can contribute to the successful development of Private Sector Participation in Jordan.nWater loss management courses convene
