Together with our unrivalled track record in water sector and our strong presence in the Middle East, we are confident in assisting SEWA to become a leading water utility company,” said Nasim.

Meinhardt’s breadth and depth of expertise in utilities infrastructure development and manpower training will be an additional strength for SEWA. We also hope to leverage on Meinhardt’s project management to have our projects delivered expeditiously and within the budget.”
