Safe drinking water for Deir Mawas residents

Safe drinking water for Deir Mawas residents

The Perkins® 4016TAG1A diesel engine has been chosen for use in Deir Mawas to support the water purification process in the region.

Opportunity

The city of Deir Mawas is located within Egypt’s Minya Governorate and has a population of around 250,000 people.

Like many cities, Deir Mawas is dependent on Egypt’s main source of fresh water, the Nile River.  

Before the water can be considered suitable for consumption though it must be treated to remove possible pollutants which can be carried by the river.

The purification system at Deir Mawas Water Treatment plant is in place to do exactly that, however the system must be protected in the event of a failure to the mains power.

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in Egypt, Delta Group chose to install the Perkins 4016TAG1A engine as part of a diesel generator set to provide standby power to the plant if the main supply should fail.

As part of the generator set, the Perkins 4016TAG1A engine is able to produce up 2025 kVA of electric power, enough to energise the entire plant and maintain the functionality of the purification system.

4000 Series provides results

Egypt’s total water consumption has increased by 17 percent in the last five years and water shortages have been known to occur frequently in other villages in the Minya Governorate. 

The durability of the 4016TAG1A engine ensures the safety of the drinking water which is purified at Deir Mawas Treatment Plant can be guaranteed at all times.

The Perkins 4016TAG1A was chosen because of its low operational cost combined with the engine's proven performance.
