Egypt - Helwan South Power Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : Environmental and social impact assessment : Helwan South 3x650MWe Gas-Fired Steam Power Project (English)

The development objective of the Helwan South Power Project for Egypt is to increase electricity generation capacity and thus help improve reliability and security of electricity supply in the country. Negative impacts include: air quality, aquatic environment, noise and vibration, flora and fauna, traffic problems, and solid waste management. Mitigation measures include: roads will be compacted and graveled if necessary; disposal of dredged sediments to an agreed site; development of site drainage plan which reduces flow velocity and sediment load; enforcement of vehicle speed limits; limited noisy construction activities at night; use of protective hearing equipment for workers; good site management practices will be observed to ensure that disturbance of habitats off-site are minimized; disposal of waste materials unsuitable for reuse on-site, (e.g. for landscaping) at appropriately licensed sites; scheduling of traffic to avoid peak hours on local roads; and collection and segregation of wastes and safe storage.
