East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC)

East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC) is one of Egypt’s major power generation companies.

The challenge

To respond to Egypt’s increasing need for power, East Delta Electricity Production Company (EDEPC) implemented the conversion of its two existing power plants.

The Al Shabab Power Plant, consisting of two 500 MW power modules, was converted from a simple cycle to a combined cycle, raising the plant’s production capacity from 1,000 MW to 1,500 MW.

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

Such a significant power increase came with an equally important water impact. Thus, two brand-new water and wastewater treatment systems were provided to address this issue.

The project

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

For both plants, our team was the one-stop source for the integrated water & wastewater treatment plants. We provided engineering, procurement, shop fabrication, supervision at the site for installation, commissioning, and start-up.

The supplied solution

The wastewater treatment plants for both sites can treat 40 m3/h of water from various streams, such as stormwater runoff, oily water, chemical drains, and sanitary water. The plants also include the dehydration of residual sludge.

Each system is managed and controlled through a dual-redundant Programmable Logics Controller. This provides a user-friendly Human Machine Interface and a serial communication network connecting it with the field and the central control room.
