Metito has been awarded the design, supply, installation, and operation of El-Hamam agricultural waste treatment plant in joint venture with Hassan Allam, The Arab Contractors, and Orascom Construction.

The wastewater treatment plant has a capacity of 6 million m3/day, the largest of its type in the world and the treated water will irrigate up to 500,000 feddans west of the Nile Delta area. The plant will receive the wastewater gathered in the north of Delta from the agricultural drainage, through digging a 120 kilometers pathway connecting the two points.

This iconic national project is part of the state’s strategy to expand Egypt’s agricultural area, develop the West Delta region, and to create new sustainable communities and will have a myriad of positive economic and social impacts in Egypt and beyond.
