Egypt’s state-owned construction firm Moukhtar Ibrahim plans to deliver the expansion works of a drinking water station in Sharqia governorate, about 70km (43 miles) northeast of Cairo, within the next period, said a source on Tuesday.
The expansion works of the drinking water station are with total cost of more than 280 million Egyptian pounds ($15.8 million), the source with knowledge in the company further told Amwal Al Ghad.
“The drinking water station expansion project is one of the most important infrastructure flagships, which are being executed in governorates,” he stated, referring that the expansion works will be carried out over 4.5 faddans.
“The drinking water station’s production capacity is set to reach around 104,000 cubic metres per day,” the source said.
Moreover, the source added that his company is currently carrying out a number of infrastructure and housing works in the country’s New Administrative Capital, some 40km (24.8 miles) east of Cairo, and in the first phase of New El Alamein City, northwest of Cairo.
