UAE-based Metito has been awarded a US$25mn contract to provide water and wastewater solutions for an upcoming 650 MW thermal power plant in Suez, Egypt
According to Zawya, Metito will install water and wastewater treatment systems at the plant to help produce demineralised water, which will be used for operating high pressure boilers, condensate polishing units, for hypochlorite generation and in chemical injection systems.
Metito will also establish a wastewater treatment plant and a water/oil separation system at the project site.
The project has been scheduled for completion in 2016.

It will also help improve the efficiency of power supply across the country.?
Since 2004, Metito has implemented water treatment solutions in more than 10 EEHC projects, which include the Nubaria, El Kuraymat, Tebbin and Cairo West Power plants.
