Four municipal projects worth a combined total of $28.87mn being undertaken by water management company
The UAE-based total intelligent water management company Metito has announced its participation in four municipal water projects in Egypt worth a combined total of $28.87mn.
The recent revival of the Egyptian economy as influencing the return of investments on dormant infrastructure projects including the waste water treatment sector.
Commenting on the market’s resurgence, Karim Madwar, managing director for Metito Africa, shared: “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.”
Metito will oversee the launch of the Arymon Waste Water Treatment Plant and the Shahidy Sewage Treament Plant, both set for completion in 2016. The two plants are owned by company’s longstanding partner, the National Organisation for Portable Water and Sanitary Drainage (NOPWASD).
The water management company will also reconstruct and extend the Muhalla Water Treatment Plant in El Mahalla El Kobra City. Owned by the El Gharbia Company for Water and Waste Water, a division of HCWW, the project will include the construction of a 70,000 m3/per day plant to treat water from the Nile River.
Lastly, Metito has been assigned to oversee the completion of the Toshka Compact Surface Water Treatment Plant. Under the umbrella of the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), the project is set for completion by the fourth quarter of 2015.
“Our commitment to Egypt and to the Egyptians has never been compromised and we are now looking to play a role in helping the country leave the bottom of the investment cycle as we look forward to many more projects in the pipeline,” concluded Madwar.
