SOPC received a €200m loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to achieve sustainability via energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

According to the turnkey contract, Cannon Artes will be responsible for designing, engineering, construction, manufacturing, delivering, commissioning, and starting up of the integrated water treatment plant.

Cannon Artes CEO Pasquale Punzo said: “The scope of this major project provides our team with unique engineering challenges and calls upon our vast expertise, technology, and know-how to realise this milestone facility for the Suez Oil Processing Company.”

The plant will treat water fed from the Red Sea into demineralised water to feed high-pressure steam boilers as well as low-salinity water for cooling towers.

The delivery of the plant is expected in Q1 2024.

The plant will have an overall footprint of a football stadium with a total capacity of 30,000m³ per day.
