Tahal meets one of the world’s most critical challenges: providing (access to) water and food
Access to (clean) water is a key prerequisite to achieve growth in countries: without access to water growth of welfare and economy is hampered. Kardan denominated "water infrastructure" as one of its core activities, and is active predominantly in emerging and frontier countries through its subsidiary Tahal Group International (Tahal). Tahal was founded in 1952 and acquired by Kardan at the beginning of this century.
Tahal specializes in water-related infrastructure projects and was also active in developing water treatment facilities in China, through its subsidiary Kardan Water International Group which was sold early 2015.
Tahal revolves around engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects as well as design (consultancy) projects. Its strategy is to offer high quality integrated, customized, sustainable and cost-effective solutions for one of the most critical challenges which the world faces today: providing water and food to people in need. Tahal’s design and EPC projects are located in Israel, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia and other regions and countries. Projects involve, for instance, improving a country's water supply, sanitation, agricultural and infrastructure sectors, such as the Quiminha project in Angola which includes the development and construction of the water supply, sewage and drainage system for a new rural settlement and irrigation of farm land as well as the training of farmers.
