 $110 MILLION CONTRACT FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY IN EGYPT
 AWARDED TO ABB VENTURE
 STAMFORD, Conn., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- A contract to build a $110 million wastewater treatment facility near Suez, Egypt, has been awarded to a joint venture including a unit of Asea Brown Boveri Inc. (ABB). The plant, to be completed in 1995, will have a capacity of 130,000 cubic meters per day and will significantly reduce wastewater pollution along the Suez Canal, improving safety and sanitary conditions.
 ABB SUSA Inc., as the sponsor, said it will work with Dillingham Construction Company, Pleasonton, Calif., to provide final design, procurement and construction services. The scope of work includes building an operations center, power facilities, treatment tanks, pumping stations, more than a mile of high-capacity sewer lines, and a 1.5-mile outfall line. ABB SUSA will also provide start-up training for local personnel, operations and maintenance services, and site infrastructure development.
 Most of the funding for this project will be provided by an $82 million grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Substantially all of the grant is to be spent on products and services from U.S. companies.
 The plant is part of a continuing effort by Egypt's National Organization for Potable Water and Sanitary Drainage to improve wastewater treatment for the Suez Canal cities.
 ABB SUSA Inc., headquartered in Monmouth Junction, N.J., is an international engineering and construction company specializing in infrastructure projects. Asea Brown Boveri Inc., headquartered in Stamford, Conn., provides products and services for the power, process, industrial automation, environmental control, mass transit and other markets.
