French infrastructure firm Suez and Arab Contractors will take over operations and maintenance work at a wastewater treatment plant in Cairo’s Gabal El Asfar on 1 March, Suez said in a statement on Wednesday. The EUR 40 mn contract will see the two companies manage the facility for four years and carry out work to improve its energy efficiency. The plant has a capacity of 1 mn cbm/day, and treats wastewater for almost 5 mn people living in Cairo.
