Egis has signed a framework contract with the Asian Development Bank to make cities more "livable" in six Southeast Asian countries.
Under the contract, which is due to run for three and a half years, Egis will initially provide technical services in a number of areas including urban water (drinking water, wastewater and drainage), solid waste management and urban planning in Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Indonesia and Laos. Subsequent contracts are expected to include master plans, feasibility studies, detailed design studies and assistance with contractor procurement contracts.
A team of Egis experts specialising in drinking water, wastewater, urban planning and environment will work at Asian Development Bank headquarters in Manila (Philippines) coordinating and managing individual projects under the framework.
France-based Egis comprises 13,600 staff and posted revenues of $1.3bn in FY17 (EA 17-Apr-18). Growing its international operations – which accounted for 62% of the FY17 total – has been a stated priority in recent years.
Egis is 75%-owned by the French financial public institution, Caisse des Dépôts, and 25% by Iosis Partenaires (which comprises Egis senior managers and French employees).
