Metito wins $28m Egypt water projects

Metito is taking part in four strategic municipal water projects in Egypt worth more than EGP220 million ($28.8 million).

The National Organisation for Potable Water and Sanitary Drainage (NOPWASD) has assigned the first the Arymon Waster Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) and the Shabbily Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), which are expected to be completed next year the statement said.

El Gharbia Company for Water and Waste Water, a division of HCWW, has also contracted Metito to perform a reconstruction and extension of the Muhalla Water Treatment Plant in El Mohalla El Kobra City.

The multi-million Egyptian pound project will see Metito build a new 70,000 m cu per day plant to treat water from the Nile River using Pulsator technology as a supplement to the two existing treatment plants.

Meanwhile, the Toshka Compact Surface Water Treatment Plant for The New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), is the last of the four strategic project recently awarded and is set to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.

Karim Madwar, Metito Africa managing director, said: “Egypt will always be a key developing market for Metito and for the water and wastewater industry due to its strategic location, population growth and its inherent need for critical sustainable infrastructure solutions and facilities for both municipal and industrial applications.

“Concluding several years of political and economic volatility, Egypt’s economic recovery is now becoming steady with clear resurgence of smaller scale municipal projects important to the continued industrial development of the country, as well as large municipal projects critical to bigger needs of the Egyptian community; residential and commercial sectors alike. The projects we have been recently awarded are just four examples of this upturn that we see continuing.”
