The New Cairo project includes the Operation and Maintenance of the infrastructures that supply bulk water to New Cairo.

The water infrastructures to be managed will capture water from the River Nile, transport it 40 kilometers, and then treat it in a Potable Water Plant.

Acciona is currently responsible for the purification of water from the Nile River for subsequent distribution to Cairo and its area of influence, operating the New Cairo drinking water treatment plant (DWTP), as well as four other WWTPs for the official entity that manages water treatment in the country.
