Water Resources Engineering

Wasser & Bau has been involved in major large scales water supply projects for over nine (5) years. We provided water resource engineering expertise in virtually every speciality within the field. Our approach to embark on turnkey development precludes our interest to offer engineering, Procurement and construction services. The company engages in comprehensive planning to include Hydro-geological, Hydro-geophysical, Hydrological, Topographical and Mapping through design of the water distribution network.

The following is a representation of the types of projects, which we have successfully completed.                       

  • Preliminary concept studies and planning
  • Preliminary design and cost analysis
  • Digital mapping
  • Design and construction of dams and embankment with management overview.
  • Design and construction of pipe network with optimization programs
  • Design and construction of underground  and overhead storage tanks
  • Design and construction of boreholes and pump houses
  • Feasibility studies, financing alternative and funding sources
  • Design and Construction of dams.

Scope of  Work Contracting

Wasser & Bauwithin its role as a project house, has the total capability to act as Water Resources Engineering, undertaking the complete design, its procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of any Hydro/Water project.

The company  prides itself on its ability to adapt to meet the needs of the client. The key to this is liaison, co-ordination and co-operation. Upon receipt of a contract we appoint one of our project managers to the project and wherever possible. They will remain in control of it, through design, procurement, construction, commissioning and handover. His prime role is to be focal point through which contact is maintained with the client, the engineer or consultant, other contractors and sub-contractors, and the various section of the company, such as Engineering and drawing office, procurement, planning, inspection, shipping and the site establishment.

Dependent on the size and complexity of the contract, we will at the required time, appoint a site manager to control the construction, installation and commissioning at the site. Specialist supervisors are brought in as and when required, for the installation of all equipment which needs specific skills, to ensure a successful installation and output and similarly, for commissioning, where complex setting up is required before being brought into operations.

Emphasis is put on training the operators  and maintenance staff who will eventually take over the plant and we consider that the early involvement of the client’s personnel in the project at the site,  gives them a better appraisal of their future functions. More is to be gained from onsite training, except in the case of very complex equipment and control systems.      

Our company technical operation spans the following fields. Dams, Hydropower, Water, Irrigation and Civil Engineering Services. Its environmental operation has interest in aesthetics and hit-tech designs and allied systems with special interest in biotechnology for engineering environments.

We executed many water resources projects in the country and therefore have acquired a lot of experience that will be put to use in any project. We not only have the competence requirements for this assignments or projects, but have gone a set further to team up with other specialist organizations.

Our competence is strong in engineering, the earth sciences (Geology, Hydrology, Geophysics), GIS, Environmental Sciences, Surveys and Computer applications for water resources exploration, evaluation, exploitation, hydrochemistry, quality control and management. We intend to deploy all these resources available to us to the execution of these projects within the context of best practices in the water industry.

We are wholly indigenous company that has gathered substantial experience in Nigeria. We are very familiar with the project areas in building; Dams construction (Small, Medium, Big), Underground Water development, Irrigation, Hydropower etc.

Water Storage and Distribution

Wasser & Bau constructs and installs steel tanks as well as concrete tanks for water storage. We also carryout internal lining and external coating for water storage facility using coating materials which are second to none. Our team of Engineers are also well trained in pipe reticulation and networking over several kilometers.

Maintenance Services

The company undertakes post commissioning maintenance of all type of water projects, we also carry works over services like leak locating, zone isolation, Deepings, rehabilitation, renovating, Redevelopment and cleaning of waterwells.

Water Well Drilling Rig Repairs

We have adequate equipments, tools and Engineers to repair and refurbish all sort of rig problem i.e hydraulic leakages, swivel head bearing defect etc. also carryout periodic maintenance on water well drilling rigs for our clients.  

Water Treatment Water treatment plants are necessary cases where good water bearing zones are not encountered, We install water treatment plant is such location which includes aeration tanks, filtration vessel, UV light bacteria eliminator etc.  and these can be both electrically of solar power depending on client’s choice of preference
