Schneider Electric, Crédit Agricole Boost Sustainability in Menoufia

Schneider Electric and Crédit Agricole Egypt Foundation for Development have proudly announced the successful completion of the second phase of their collaborative community development project in Menoufia governorate, specifically in Ezbet Ateya, Tita village, Invest-Gate reports.

To bolster the Water, Energy, and Food Nexus in Egyptian villages, the latest initiative saw the installation of a solar-powered irrigation pump and a 1.5 km canal in Tita village. Nestled in the heart of the Nile Delta, Tita village relies heavily on agriculture, with strategic crops such as corn, wheat, clover, and various vegetables dominating its landscape. The village’s agricultural activities heavily rely on canals drawing water from the Nile.

Sebastien Riez, Cluster President of Schneider Electric Northeast Africa & Levant, expressed his satisfaction, highlighting the project’s direct benefits to the local community. The project aims to improve the lives of approximately 20,000 individuals, increase the income of 1,200 farmers and 200 families, and facilitate irrigation across 120-200 feddans, directly impacting the livelihoods of the local population.

Moreover, Jean-Pierre Trinelle, Chairman of Crédit Agricole Egypt Foundation for Development, emphasized the positive environmental impact of clean technologies in Tita village, fostering efficient water resource utilization for agricultural irrigation.

Furthermore, by adopting clean energy technologies, such as a 30-kW photovoltaic-operated system, the project aims to reduce carbon emissions by 32.5 tons annually and save up to 10,000 liters of diesel annually. Moreover, water access and transportation efficiency enhancements are expected to benefit local farmers significantly.

Also, this initiative builds upon previous successful collaborations between Schneider Electric and Crédit Agricole Egypt Foundation in neighbouring villages. Together, they have implemented various sustainable infrastructure projects, including greenhouses, fishponds, chicken incubators, and compost units, all powered by solar energy.

Aligned with Sustainable Development Goals and Egypt’s Vision 2030, these initiatives underscore a commitment to environmental sustainability and improving the quality of life for Egyptian citizens.
