News EGYPT: Gakon will dry the sludge from the Bahr El-Baqar wastewater treatment plant

The Dutch company Gakon has been chosen to supply the sludge drying installations for the Bahr al-Baqar wastewater treatment plant under construction east of the Suez Canal in Egypt. The sewerage project, one of the largest in the world, is intended for the decontamination and irrigation of plantations in the Sinai Peninsula.

The Bahr al-Baqar wastewater treatment plant project is still in the news. The Gakon Company is joining the consortium responsible for the construction of this wastewater treatment plant on the Sinai Peninsula. As part of this wastewater treatment project, the company based in Wateringen (Netherlands) will supply equipment for the installation of Huber technology dedicated to drying the sludge of the future wastewater treatment plant.

Gakon will supply and build 16 greenhouses of 9,200 m² each, covered with solar panels that will provide the electricity needed to dry the sludge from the wastewater treatment plant. “As a partner in the joint venture, Huber will also supply the fully automated sludge feed unit with a moving floor system and the Ro8 T conveyorised units. In addition, Huber will take over the electrical control of the solar drying plant and, of course, the detailed process engineering”, says Gakon.
