Egypt: Qandeel Opens Expansion of 2nd Phase of Maadi Water Station

Prime Minister Hisham Qandeel inaugurated on Thursday 10/01/2013 an expansion of the second phase of Maadi water station, at a cost of EGP 200 million.

The new water plant will serve residents of Maadi, New Maadi, al-Basatin, al-Lasilki, Sakr Kourish, al-Mukatam and Corniche El-Nil.

The station's capacity is 400,000 cubic meters per day. It is affiliated to the Egyptian Holding Company for Water and Wastewater.

The station's previous capacity was 90,000 cubic meters per day. After failing to renovate it, the plant was destroyed and rebuilt to increase its capacity to reach 400,000 cubic meters per day.

Qandeel was accompanied by Utilities Minister Abdel-Qawi Khalifa and Cairo Governor Osama Kamel.

While on the tour, Khalifa posted Qandeel on a project to open 14 new water stations in Greater Cairo, at a total capacity of 6.5 million cubic meters per day, as part of his ministry's plans to renovate and build water plants across Egypt.

The Chairman of the Egyptian Holding Company for Water and Wastewater also took part in the opening of the new water plant.
