Honeywell, Etisalat Misr to work on Egypt’s New Administrative Capital
The collaboration will support Egypt’s smart city vision, establish a City Operations Center (COC), and deliver citizen services
Honeywell and Etisalat Misr – a subsidiary of Etisalat UAE – are teaming up to support Egypt’s smart city vision, establish a City Operations Center (COC), and deliver citizen services at the nation’s New Administrative Capital, which is touted as one of the largest smart city projects in the world.
The two companies will ink an agreement on Day 1 of Intersec 2020 to provide advanced solutions for the new city being built 45km east of Cairo, which will expand to cover more than 700km2, once complete.
The City Operations Center (COC) will integrate data from city management systems to support administrative functions and smart city services for citizens, as well as public and private sector entities in Egypt’s New Administrative Capital.
The initiative with Etisalat Misr follows Honeywell’s agreement in February 2019 with the Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD) to deliver city-wide security and surveillance systems as part of the first phase of the project’s development.
Construction Week reported in December 2019 that DP World Sokhna entered into a trilateral partnership with the China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC), and the China Ocean Shipping Company Ltd (COSCO) to serve as the hub for the import of all construction material that will be used to build the central business and financial district of Egypt’s administrative capital.
