Metito, a multinational global provider of intelligent water management and alternative energy solutions, has been awarded the design, supply, construction, operation and maintenance of the El-Hammam agricultural wastewater treatment plant in Egypt. The project is a Joint Venture with Hassan Allam, The Arab Contractors and Orascom Construction.
The agricultural wastewater treatment plant has a capacity of 6 million cubic metres of water per day, making it the largest of its type in the world. Its delivery capacity will be achieved by collecting and transporting agricultural drainage water from the north of the Nile Delta to the plant through a 120-kilometre-long course. The treated water will then irrigate up to 500,000 feddans west of the Nile Delta area.
The project forms part of the government’s strategy to expand Egypt’s agricultural area and develop the Western Desert region. This also contributes to creating other positive social and economic impact, including the development of new agricultural and population communities.
