New Microbiology Lab in Port Moresby

Eda Ranu opened its new microbiology laboratory in Port Moresby for the Environment and Quality control division recently. This was made possible through the twinning program in partnership with Sydney Water Corporation and ADB. The laboratory now supports two fully kitted mobile labs bought in 2013.

This was done in groundwork for Eda Ranu to get international accreditation from the National Association of Testing Australia to furnish quality water testing and purification services in harmony with Environmental and Health regulations. Independent Public Business Corporation Managing Director Garry Hersey said Eda Ranu is a significant service provider of water and sanitation solution which revenue are produced from these services rendered therefore it is significant there is clean provision of water for consumers.

To attain this Eda Ranu needs to build its basis in the short and long term through infrastructure development and improvements. He was thankful about the twinning progam which will be part of Eda Ranu’s highlights that will be presented during the 8th Water and Waste Conference and Expo in Port Moresby.

This partnership between ADB and Sydney Water Corporation is a learning point for Eda Ranu where they can draw from the experiences of Sydney Water Corporation. He said one of the critical areas to consider in the business is the protection of waterways and added that even the developed countries experience problems with water and there’s more to be done to protect waterways.
