Paris, France.-A delegation from the National Institute of Hydraulic Resource of Cuba has complied in France with a broad agenda aimed at exploring technologies that allow a better distribution and use of water, Abel Salas, the entity’s first vice president, said.
Salas told Prensa Latina that the program included several activities such as visits to factories, companies and construction projects, in order to learn about these technologies never used in the Caribbean nation, and they could be very useful for the efficient management of this resource.
According to the Cuban expert, ‘everything has to do with using technologies that allow us to make a more efficient use of water, shorten the deadlines for carrying out the works, get the resource quickly from where we have it to places where it is in short supply, and also improve the overall treatment of waters.’
His mission, which also included tunnel designer, Pedro Ricardo, and work supervisor, Ramon Quinta, was also to visit places where technologies for the drilling of tunnels are in use and they do not involve a destruction of the urbanization in the Earth’s land surface.
The Cuban delegation also visited companies specializing in seawater desalination plants through the use of renewable energy, which would be very useful for a country like Cuba, which is surrounded by water.
Other activities included visits to pipe factories, a laboratory that monitors the quality of concrete production and a waste treatment plant considered the largest one in Europe, where all processes for the handling of solids, sludge and gases were observed.
The agenda also included several meetings with French companies that could help Cuba in the application of these technologies.
According to Salas, the Cuban specialists detailed in those meetings the characteristics of the new law for foreign investment in the Caribbean nation and the possibilities foreign companies have to operate in his territory.
