The Algerian Cévital Group will inaugurate, Wednesday, November 7th, a new project in France for the production of membranes and ultra-pure water production stations.
The project will be located in the city of Charleville-Mézières in the Ardennes department, in the north-east of France.
It consists of three industrial units manufacturing membranes and ultra-pure water production plants, sea desalination and industrial water treatment, in the framework of the German technology EvCon acquired by the Cévital Group.
The major project is expected to eventually create more than a thousand new jobs, according to Cévital.
This project will be the third to be launched in France by the Cévital Group, adding to those of Oxxo and Brandt.
The new site is to be inaugurated on Wednesday by French President Emmanuel Macron, in the presence of the Cevital Group’s CEO, Issad Rebrab, and representatives of the French region.
French President Emmanuel Macron’s inauguration of the new investment project of the Cévital complex comes in the context of France’s celebration of the centenary of the end of the First World War in 1918.
It is a celebration that carries a program of visits by President Macron to the areas which were deeply affected by the First World War and today suffer from economic and social problems due to lack of development.
Moreover, the launch of the new Cévital project in France will coincide with the upcoming visit of Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia to Paris slated for this Saturday.
