Cannon Artes supplied two integrated water & waste water treatment systems for milestone power generation projects in Egypt.

To respond to Egypt’s increasing need for power, East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC) implemented the conversion of the existing Al Shabab Power Plant, consisting of two power modules of 500 MW each, from simple to combined cycle, raising the plant’s production capacity from 1,000 MW to 1,500 MW.

On the other hand also the West Damietta Power Plant was converted from simple cycle to combined cycle power plant by adding four heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), and one 250 MW condensing steam turbine generator (STG).

For both plants Cannon Artes was involved as a one-stop-source for the integrated water & waste water treatment plants. Cannon Artes provided engineering, procurement, shop fabrication, supervision to installation at site, commissioning and start-up.

The waste water treatment plants for both sites are capable to purify 40 m3/h of water from various streams such as storm water runoff, oily water, chemical drains, sanitary water. The plants also include the dehydration of the residual sludge.

Each system is managed and controlled through a dual-redundant Programmable Logics Controller provided with a user-friendly Human Machine Interface and a serial communication network connecting it with the field and with the main Control Room.
