Monoufi Main Branch Project

ACE took part in the Monoufi Main Branch Project at Al-Qanatir Al-Khayriyyah, Egypt when a new head regulator was installed in 1998-2001. The head regulator consists of 9 vents, each 5 m in width, and a navigation lock of 180 m in length, and 12 m width, with a height of 9 m, including a swing bridge. All structures are from reinforced concrete, except for the steel structures and radial gates. The up- and down-stream approaches are lined with riprap.

The project also included soil investigations, a dewatering system, soil improvements and quality control.
