FG Wilson and its Egyptian partner Triangle Heavy Equipment have completed a US$188m genset contract for a business, leisure and residential complex in Cairo.
Cairo Festival City features 700 000 square metres of office space, 217 796 square metres of retail and leisure space, luxury living communities, hotels, schools and a theme park.
It is due to be completed in 2018, when it will be home to over 13 000 residents and a workplace for 50 000.
Triangle installed 15 FG Wilson gensets, ranging from 44 kVA up to 550 kVA, which will provide power to water and sewage plants, four office blocks and a theme park, as well as to on-going construction sites.
All the gensets are providing back-up power, apart from those at the construction sites which are providing prime power.
Ashraf Kamal, of Triangle Heavy Equipment, said FG Wilson and Triangle had been recommended to manage all future genset requirements at Cairo Festival City, which could see “the installation of up to 16 additional FG Wilson 400 kVA units between now and 2018”.
