To aid in the solution for clean water in Egypt, Gakon joined a sewage treatment project which is under construction in Egypt, in the east of the Suez Canal. The project contains the treatment of wastewater and agricultural wastewater from the sewer system Bahr El-Baqar. To ease the water shortage in the Sinai region, the clarified water will be returned to the El-Salam canal and serve for the irrigation of agricultural land on the Sinai Peninsula.
The initiative for this project was taken to ease the water shortage in the Sinai region. The clarified water will be returned to the El-Salam canal and serve for the irrigation of agricultural land on the Sinai Peninsula.
Huge amounts of sludge are generated in the different treatment processes on the wastewater treatment plant. This sludge will be dried with the technology of HUBER that uses solar energy for drying to reduce sludge mass and volume.
As a proud partner of the joint venture, Gakon will design and build 16 greenhouses of 9200 m² per greenhouse for this project. By doing so, Gakon creates he perfect circumstances for the technology from HUBER to dry the sludge and reduce sludge mass and volume. Gakon is very proud to be part of the biggest treatment plant in the world!
As a partner of the joint venture, HUBER will also supply the complete fully automatically operating sludge supply and feeding unit with push floor system and HUBER Screw Conveyor Ro8 T units. Furthermore, HUBER will supply the electrical control for the complete solar drying plant and, of course, provide the complete detailed process engineering.
