Created on 26 April 2013 Print Email

On 23 April 2013, the Wastewater Management Programme (WMP) organized an introduction workshop on Asset Documentation for Son La Urban Environment Company (URENCO). 

The documentation of assets is an important management function enabling wastewater service providers, such as Son La URENCO, to improve their effectiveness in managing wastewater assets and other infrastructure facilities.

A comprehensive GPS-based database of assets will support Son La URENCO in implementing common asset management tasks such as the planning of operation and preventive maintenance activities, budget planning and the planning of network extensions, replacements and rehabilitations. It will also reduce costs and create financial transparency towards local authorities, resulting in a more stable and predictable financial revenue stream.

The management of Son La URENCO showed a high interested in the topic. As in the other cities supported by WMP, Son La URENCO will be supplied with the required equipment, software and skills to build up its own asset documentation unit starting in 2014.
