The Cameroon government awards 3 contracts worth FCfa 35.3 billion to the 2 Chadian engineering companies

The Cameroonian government has just awarded three contracts worth a total of FCfa 35.3 billion to the Chadian engineering companies Sotcogog and Encobat, to develop hydro-agricultural areas in the Extreme-North region.

According to the official communiqué made public on 3 June 2016 by the Minister of Public Procurement, Abba Sadou, out this global envelope, FCfa 27.1 billion will go to the group gathering the companies Sotcogog Sarl and Sotcogog SA, while the company Encobat wins two contracts worth a total of FCfa 8.2 billion.

With these new contracts, the Chadian companies thus strengthen their position on the civil engineering market in Cameroon. Indeed, a few months ago, two groups of Chadian companies, in this case Geyser SA-Sotcogog SA and SRGM-ETRA, had already been selected at the end of an international request for bids, for the rehabilitation of irrigated areas and the Maga & Logone and Mayo Vrick dykes, all in the Extreme-North. Total amount for the two contracts: FCfa 62.1 billion.

The latter works are meant to protect over 10,000 hectares of rice paddies from floods, in which approximately 78,000 Cameroonian rice farmers managed by the Société d’Expansion et de Modernisation de la Riziculture de Yagoua (Semry) work.
