October 14, 2021 - Manila Water unit taps BPI loan for Samar project
Manila Water Co. Inc. said one of its joint venture firms has secured from Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) a P393-million loan facility, which it would use for capital expenditure projects in Samar province.
Through the agreement period, which ends in 2043, CbWI intends to lay out P1.2 billion in capital for a system that has a potential billed water volume of 28.43 million liters per day.
The seven-year management, operations and maintenance contract was awarded by the state-run National Water Co. The partners will serve the Eastern Cluster cities of Dammam, Al Hofuf, Al Jubail, Al Khobar, Al Qatif and Hafar Al Batin.
In the first semester, Manila Water saw its consolidated net income grow by 10 percent year-on-year to P2.73 billion, due in part to higher contributions from overseas affiliates.
The Manila Water group is also active outside the Philippines through affiliates such as the Eastern Water Resources Development and Management in Thailand; Thu Duc Water, Kenh Dong Water and Saigon Water in Vietnam; and PT Sarana Tirta Ungaran in Indonesia.
