Egypt’s SCZONE set to tender water desalination Plant.

The chief of Egypt’s Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE) has officially declared intentions to commence a bidding process for a water desalination plant. In July of last year, SCZONE announced the establishment of a center for manufacturing water pumps, as reported by Zawya.

Waleid Gamal El-Dien disclosed that preparations are currently in progress, in partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), to kick off the initial stage of the water desalination project.

The project is anticipated to have a daily production capacity of approximately 250,000 cubic meters. As per a statement from SCZONE, this phase will soon be open for international tender.

The Egyptian industrial and commercial hub stated, “It is important to note that arrangements are being made to launch a global tender for the first phase of the project.”

The statement elaborated that EBRD has been actively involved with SCZONE since February 2023, focusing on digitizing investor services and restructuring over 60 services. These enhancements are scheduled to be operational later this year.

The facility is set to improve the supply of drinking and irrigation water through desalination within the well-known economic zone, which covers a vast 461 km² area along the banks of the Suez Canal, an area prone to drought.
