Orascom Construction PLC has built a track record in the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) sector and has secured a number of multi-year O&M contracts for projects on which the Group is also the contractor. Current O&M contracts span several sectors such water treatment, wastewater treatment, water desalination and transportation, including a five-year O&M contract for largest water treatment plant in Egypt and a thirty-year O&M contract for the world’s longest monorail project in Egypt.
One vital facet of the overall business is within the facilities management services industry. We recognized a gap in the Egyptian market for a high-quality facility management company. To fill this growing need, we invested in Contrack FM and Suez Industrial Development Company (SIDC).
