Through securing this contract, the globally renowned engineering company accelerates its growth plan by strategically working towards its objective of development into new markets. Additionally, Harris Pye focuses on strengthens its bid to be the preferred Tier One EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) choice for the industry.

The project of Canal Sugar aims at the development and reclamation of 77,000 ha desert land located at the West of Minya to grow 2.5mn mt of sugar beet per year in addition to other crops. Moreover, investments of US$1bn and the refinery’s capacity of 900k mt per year, highlight the major significance of the Canal Sugar project in bolstering two economies.

Harris Pye’s role is further set to extend beyond the delivery of the fifth boiler.
