Veolia wins contract for Egypt water treatment plants

VeoliaVeolia Water Technologies has been awarded a contract by Egyptian Electricity Holding Company (EEHC) to construct and set up water and wastewater treatment plants for Assiut Supercritical Power Plant and Cairo West Power Plant

The state-owned EEHC opted for Veolia Water Technologies due to its extensive experience in the power generation market both in Egypt and across the wider Middle East region.

Thierry Froment, chief operating officer, Veolia Water Technologies Middle East, said, “We are committed to our promise of resourcing the world and continue to bring this commitment to Egypt, as seen with our partnership with EEHC.”

Delivering a high return on experience from the South Helwan Power Plant, the French company provides solutions such as ultrafiltration, electro-deionisation, industrial wastewater treatment, and potable water systems.

“Through Veolia Water Technologies’ customised design, build and operational services and treatment facilities, we are able to cater to the Egyptian market’s needs. We are proud to be part of the solution of addressing the water scarcity and power outages in the country.” Froment added.

Veolia Water Technologies was one of the earliest companies in the region to introduce continuous electro-deionisation (CEDI) system to the Egyptian power market, which lessens chemical consumption and eliminates chemically contaminated wastewater.
