The plant consists of Nijhuis’ technologies for the physical-chemical, aerobic and anaerobic biological treatment, active sludge and tertiary treatment, to meet the strict effluent requirements, and will also recover as much as possible biogas and energy from the effluent.
Based on the current composition of the wastewater collected from over 250 companies in the Port Said Industrial Zone the plant is designed to be self-sufficient on its energy demand, but will also sell access power to the grid, a true example of turning the cost for wastewater into profit.
Fifteen-year BOT contract
According to chairman and CEO Mr. Ahmed Ramadan at Green Valley Oil Services the contract marks the new policy of the Egyptian Government to work in public private partnership with industry together
Ramadan: ‘The fifteen-year BOT contract to operate this wastewater treatment facility is of very big importance to the GVOS Group and builds on our reputation to deliver solutions for environmental challenges.’
