Water Pumping System ESPC Development, April 2023

The United States Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) contracted Resource Mobilization Advisors (RMA) to develop and deliver A Request for Proposal for an ESPC for El Salvador’s national water utility Administración Nacional de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (ANDA). BrAle Consulting developed the engineering elements of the Terms of Reference and delivered the Preliminary Energy Assessment for the 20 water pumping stations.

The government of the state of Victoria in Australia awarded AU$ 300,000 to the OASIS project. This innovative project will use anaerobic digestion and aquaculture technologies to treat separated food waste, with the resulting by-product used as nutrients for growing spirulina for human consumption and duckweed for animal consumption. BrAle Consulting prepared the grant application and will act as the project manager.
