Schneider Electric supplies electrical equipment to Furniture City
Posted by Schneider Electric on November 29th, 2017
Schneider Electric has contracted to supply and install all electrical works for three projects: Furnture City, Galala water desalination plant, and a Beni Suef cement factory.
Mohamed Shahin, head of the company’s industries sector in Egypt and Africa, said that the Department of Military Affairs has been contracted to supply the medium voltage and electrical panels for the Furniture City, noting that supply will be completed by the middle of next year.
The company also contracted with the Armed Forces Engineering Authority for the supply of medium and low voltage panels, as well as speed switches and automatic control of the desalination plant.
Shahin said that Schneider Electric contracted with Assiut Cement Factory (CEMEX) to supply the low and medium electrical panels and will begin supply next year.
Schneider Electric provides technological solutions, software, and services to enable its clients to manage their operations better through using automated control systems based on a range of integrated solutions.
Shahin said that Schneider aims to complete the supply and installation of all electrical works for nine factories in the Phosphate Fertiliser Complex compound in the Ain Sokhna area next month.
The total cost of the project is estimated at EGP 12bn. It is composed of nine different fertiliser factories that produce different types of fertilisers used to enrich the soil and increase the yield per acre. It is set to provide 2,000 direct jobs and 15,000 indirect jobs, as well as 4,000 jobs during construction.
Furthermore, the project also includes the establishment of a maritime quay for exporting products through Ain Sokhna port and a water desalination plant to provide water for all industrial activities.
The project aims to cover the local market’s fertiliser needs and export the surplus production. The total capacity of all nine factories amounts to 1 million tonnes per year of phosphate, compound, and DAP fertilisers, as well as commercial and pure phosphoric acid.
