25 March 2019
Fluence Corporation Limited is pleased to announce that a partnership formed between its Egyptian joint venture The International Co. for Water Services & Infrastructure (IWSI) and Hassan Allam EPC has been awarded an EPC contract of USD 74M to design and construct a 40,000 m3 /day seawater desalination plant, with infrastructure designed and built for a future capacity expansion to 80,000 m3 /day.
In this custom engineered solution, through IWSI, Fluence will act as the technology provider, designing the process and supplying the pretreatment, reverse osmosis skids, post-treatment equipment and the start-up and commissioning of the plant for a total contract share of US$20 million. Hassan Allam EPC will provide the local works including the marine design and execution of the intake and outfall.
Once completed, the plant will serve New Mansoura city, which is currently under construction along Egypt’s northern coast on the Mediterranean Sea. New Mansoura will have a population of approximately 250,000 people when its first phase is inaugurated. Given the population growth of New Mansoura, it is expected that the plant will eventually be expanded to 80,000 m3 /day capacity. The plant is expected to be operational in 18 months.
