SMEC has operated in Kiribati since 1989, with the Tarawa Reticulation Improvement Project. The project involved the design, planning and construction of the South Tarawa fresh water reticulation scheme. The scheme required excavation of the existing pipeline and replacement with approximately 100 km of new pipes.
SMEC has continued its dominance in the Kiribati water sector, undertaking benchmarking of the performance of water utilities. Prior to this benchmarking exercise, limited availability of reliable information on water utilities performance across the Pacific was posing significant challenges to improvement and institutional reform.
SMEC is undertaking project management, community engagement and capacity development projects in Kiribati.
SMEC aligns local knowledge with global expertise to address the needs of its diverse client base, and has delivered thousands of projects in more than 100 countries, including Kiribati.
We draw on the skills and experience from across the Surbana Jurong Group to offer enhanced capabilities and reach, delivering a complete value chain of services across Urban Development, Infrastructure and Management Services.
