Egypt strengthens its presence in the green hydrogen market with a new investment
Man and Taqa, have teamed together for a green hydrogen pilot project in Egypt. Egypt's green hydrogen development is being reported on. Two private businesses have chosen to collaborate on a pilot initiative to develop this alternative energy. Man Energy Solutions is a company that specialises in the manufacture of diesel engines and heavy-duty turbo gear. The Augsburg-based firm will collaborate with Taqa Power, a Cairo-based affiliate of the Taqa Arabia Group. Man Energy Solutions will supply technical information to Taqa Power on the utilisation of electrolysis for a hydrogen plant solution as part of the cooperation. The process of transforming electrical energy into chemical energy, especially hydrogen, is known as electrolysis. The manufacture of green hydrogen is thus enabled by the transformation of clean electricity. "This is an intriguing project with a valuable partner in a country that recognises the critical role of green hydrogen in the transition to a global economy that is climate neutral. It's also a great chance for Man Energy Solutions to show off its knowledge at every level of the hydrogen economy's evolution. Ghassan Saab, Head of Energy Business at Man Energy Solutions, says, "We look forward to working closely with Taqa Power to develop the ideal solution that will enable them to position themselves strongly in what will be one of the most important markets of the future." Said by Taqa team.

Egypt builds a huge treatment plant to solve the Giza water crisis
Egypt builds a huge treatment plant to solve the Giza water crisis The Egyptian government has announced the construction of a large water station known as "Dahab Island" in the hopes of alleviating the drinking water crisis in Giza Governorate. After pilot tests, Major General Ahmed Rashid, Governor of Giza, announced that Dahab Island will be operational in its second phase, with a production capacity of 160,000 metres per day. Rasheed stated that operating the plant in its two phases will greatly ease water pressure and availability concerns impacting some districts in Giza. The first phase was finished and started in 2019. The expansions to the Dahab Island plant will cost EGP 640 million in total. The water is purified at the Dahab Island treatment plant utilising sophisticated DynaSand technology, which filters water constantly via sand. In Egypt, fast sand filtration is used in the majority of water treatment plants. Egypt has 146 sewage treatment plants with a total daily capacity of five million cubic metres, with a total cost of 29.5 billion pounds and a cost of 10,000 pounds to treat a cubic metre of water, according to the official. Two more stations are being developed by the Ministry. Bahr al-Baqar is one of them, with a daily capacity equal to the sum of its 146 predecessors. In January 2020, Minister of Planning and Economic Development Hala al-Saeed announced the allocation of 236 million pounds to provide electric power to the sewage treatment plant in Bahr al-Baqar.

Dubai extinguishes a ship fire in Jebel Ali Port | Breaking News constguide.com
  A fire on board a ship in Dubai's Jebel Ali port was put out on Thursday after it broke out during the night as a result of an explosion in a container, according to the Dubai Media Office (DMO). Mona Al Marri, Director General of the Dubai Media Office (DMO), told Al Arabiya TV that the fire occurred in the Middle East's largest shipping centre as a result of a crate explosion. There were no casualties, according to the DMO Ship Management Office, and port authorities had taken steps to ensure that normal shipping was not disrupted. According to Al Arabiya, authorities in Dubai, a major economic hub and one of the United Arab Emirates' seven emirates, stated the explosion was caused by "friction or high temperatures" during the hot summer months. The explosion was heard in residential areas 22 kilometres from Jebel Ali. Overnight, the DMO published footage of water being pumped to put out the flames, and Reuters witnesses said that the vehicles involved in port activities continued in and out of the port while civil defence vehicles arrived to deal with the fire. DMO did not identify the ship in question but said it had the capacity to carry 130 containers and added that the ship was preparing to dock on a berth away from the port's main shipping line, and officials told Al Arabiya that the crew had been evacuated. State-run DP World, owner of Jebel Ali Port which handled 13.5 million containers in 2020, had no immediate comment when contacted by Reuters
