Hassan Allam Holding has announced on Wednesday that its subsidiary, Hassan Allam Construction, as part of a consortium with Veolia, has completed a project which included the design, supply, maintenance, and installation of a 33,000 cubic meter per day sewage treatment plant in Senbellawein, in the Dakahlia governorate of Egypt.

The contract awarded in 2018 included the full engineering, procurement, and construction services for the Waste Treatment Plant, Lift Stations, and Networks, along with a one-year operation and maintenance period. For the project, Veolia-Hassan HAC consortium built 85 km of sewerage networks.

The construction of the Senbellawein wastewater treatment plant is part of the National Rural Sanitation Programme (NRSP). Implemented by the Egyptian Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities, the programme seeks to extend sanitation services to more than 30,000 small villages across Egypt currently unserved by the existing sanitation network.

According to The World Bank, only 18% of households in rural areas in Egypt are connected to sanitation services. To increase sanitation services, in 2015, Egyptian authorities developed a performance-based subsidy scheme for local water and sanitation companies when it was launched in 2015. Through this programme, the Egyptian government recorded the connection of 167,000 rural households to sanitation networks in 2018.
