Studies & Master planning
At ECG, we understand that master planning guides growth and development, and as such is paramount to the future success of all projects. This is why we really give it our all.
Our master planning approach covers urban planning, land-use planning, transportation facilities, open spaces, and public services, as well as environment and heritage conservation precincts; and if this is not enough, we also conduct a broad range of other studies pertaining to air, soil, water, health, and safety.
These studies include Economic Impact Analyses, Energy Efficiency Potential Studies, Environmental Impact Assessments, Feasibility Studies, Geotechnical & Ground Engineering Studies, GIS Studies, Hazard & Operability Studies (HAZOP), Hydrologic & Hydraulic Studies, Land Valuations, Marketing Researches, Population Studies, Real Estate & Asset Appraisals, Social Impact Assessments, Solid Waste Management Studies, Traffic Impact Assessments, Urban Development Studies, and water, air, and soil characterizations.
This meticulous attention to detail and comprehensive approach has paid off. Today, we are the trusted name in the field of engineering consultancy both nationally and globally. And we take great pride in that.see projects related
River Nile Protection and Development Project
Scope of Work
- Providing technical assistance and equipment for the preparation of prefeasibility studies, conceptual designs and tender documents for priority projects.
- Strengthening the institutions responsible for monitoring, understanding and predicting causes and effects of erosion and pollution.
- Implementing pilot projects in priority areas to test the feasibility of the river channel protection and the treatment of drained water for re-use in irrigation purposes.
- Scope also covered studies related to pollution control, hydro-generation from existing and proposed barrages, increase of river navigation, development of intermediate water storage, utilization of flash float flows and reduction of water spills to the sea.
Funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the River Nile Protection and Development (RNPD) project aimed at achieving rational utilization of available resources, mitigation of side effects and
increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of present use and future development of the River Nile Channel and its two branches, namely, Damietta and Rosetta.
The River Nile Protection and Development (RNPD) Project comprised various tasks and subtasks including:
- Preparing pre-feasibility studies, designs and tender documents for the optimum alternative concerning the following:
- Protection of the Nile and its main structures from bed degradation and bank erosion.
- Preparing an acceptable and implementable pollution control system.
- Hydropower generation in existing and/or proposed barrages and head regulators.
- River training and navigation improvements.
- Utilization of surplus releases and flows that exceed consumption requirements.
- Development and implementation of computer programs for monitoring changes in river beds and banks, predicting the impact of new projects, and for pollution control.
- Studying and designing civil works required for stabilizing the river regime, navigable channel and river banks in critical areas upstream of Assiut Barrage. Also, designing the civil, mechanical and electrical works required for reducing the organic pollution in drained water to allow its re-use in irrigation.
- Implementing two pilot projects, one to stabilize the river banks and the other to treat drained water for reuse in irrigation purposes.
- Pre-feasibility study for the development of Naga Hammadi Barrage. The study aimed at investigating present conditions of the Barrage, and immediate maintenance needs to guarantee conditions service, in addition to providing conceptual design and cost estimates for rehabilitation works.
The possibility of constructing a new barrage was also studied.see projects related
