Perma-Pipe International Holdings has announced its Egypt subsidiary has been awarded $6 million (€4.53 million) in contracts by the China State Construction Engineering Company (CSCEC).
This is for the provision of thermally insulated pipe, field joints and a leak detection system for a district cooling network. This is for the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA) in the central business district of the new administrative capital of Egypt, 45km east of Cairo.
The project began at Perma-Pipe’s facilities in Beni Suef in the fourth quarter of this year.
Adham Sharkawy, general manager for Perma-Pipe Egypt, said: “Perma-Pipe looks forward to serving CSCEC and NUCA under Dar Al-Handasah’s supervision on this project and to continuing our role in providing infrastructure for construction of the capital city project. We are pleased to see an increase in project opportunities in Egypt, and excited about the country’s potential and serving our customers moving forward.”
Grant Dewbre, senior vice president for Perma-Pipe’s MENA region, added: "We are very appreciative that CSCEC placed their trust in Perma-Pipe to execute this project. We value our relationships with CSCEC, NUCA and Dar Al-Handasah and look forward to starting our successful journey to providing our services to these companies.”
David Mansfield, president and CEO, said: "We thank our customer for this award and we are pleased to see that the market in Egypt continues to develop, and that our decision to invest in that country was the right choice.”
