Dubai – Mubasher: UAE-based Harris Pye Engineering Group signed an agreement with Canal Sugar Co., an Egyptian joint stock company, in a bid to bolster its presence in the North African nation.

Under the deal, Harris Pye will provide Canal Sugar Co’s beet sugar production facility in Minya with five horizontal, three-pass, and multi-tubular smoke tube boilers with a capacity of 40 tonnes per hour (tph), according to a statement on Sunday.

Set to be one of the world’s largest beet sugar production facilities, Canal Sugar Co’s mega project is expected to reduce the shortage in sugar production in Egypt by 75%, provide supplies valued at $650 million, and export by-products amounting to $120 million per year.

Harris Pye’s “provisions to this major project will align with the company's philosophy of ensuring the highest standards of design, service and quality,” Harris Pye’s CEO, Mark Prendergast, said.

Canal Sugar Co’s project aims to develop and reclaim 181,000 feddans of desert land situated at the west of Minya for producing 2.5 million metric tonnes of sugar beet annually as well as other crops.

Additionally, investments of $1 billion as well as the beet sugar plant’s capacity of 900,000 metric tonnes per year “highlight the major significance of the Canal Sugar project in bolstering two economies,” the statement noted.

Harris Pye is expected “to deliver top-notch quality boiling systems, given their proven standard of industry excellence. These deliverables represent a critical component of [Canal Sugar’s] new state-of-the-art mega refinery project in Al Minya,” CEO of Canal Sugar, Islam Salem, noted.

After the delivery of the five boilers, Harris Pye will also provide the needed manpower for the project including an in-house design, quality assurance, and project management team.

The project is slated to begin commissioning by the beginning of 2021.
