Our missions

Egis provided full EPCM services from design to completion.

The mission was in four phases:

  • feasibility study, preliminary design studies for selected technology;
  • design of call for tender documents for a turnkey operating-maintenance contract;
  • management of construction of the entire project (civil engineering and rolling stock); and
  • technical monitoring of implementation up to commissioning of the line.
