CCB Targets ADB Projects in Sri Lanka

In 2013, CCB Envico will continue its strategy of pursuing development opportunities with Multilaterals such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and in Asia and the Pacific.

Current Work for CCB Envico internationally is in Micronesia and the provision of Personnel to projects in the Marshall Islands and on a water project evaluation in Nauru. CCB Envico are currently delivering the Pohnpei Waste Water Treatment Plant with funding from the ADB.

New opportunities include potential work in Colombo, Sri Lanka where CCB will employ their extensive knowledge in water and waste water projects to pursue projects that will significantly improve the water supply and wellbeing of the local population. CCB have entered into an informal partnership with Arinma Holdings and Access Engineering in Sri Lanka who bring strong technical, financial and organisational capacity and knowledge of local suppliers.

CCB Envico has been involved with capacity-building and infrastructure development projects in the Pacific and Asia with Reeves International over the last decade by providing management and personnel to Reeves on the Vanuatu Schools Project, the Yogyakarta Earthquake Reconstruction Project. This experience along with extensive knowledge of water treatment processes gives CCB the exact technical expertise and capabilities to carry out projects in developing countries. CCB Envico Directors Simon Gorman and Peter Cusack are also Directors of Reeves International which explains their close association. Reeves has a long history of carrying out capacity-building and infrastructure development projects in the Pacific and Asia.

The Asian Development Bank works towards a poverty free Asia and Pacific where approximately 1.7 Billion people are poor and unable to access essential goods, services, assets and opportunities to which every human is entitled. Since 1966, the ADB has worked towards improving people’s lives through wise investment and partnerships and sustained and inclusive growth.
