RDI has been awarded the design and supply of control consoles for a large-scale control center located in Egypt's New Administrative Capital

The project, which consists of 164 workposts, will equip an operating environment for the Governmental sector and will be operative by the end of 2021.


The new city is to be located 45 kilometres (28 miles) east of Cairo in a currently largely undeveloped area halfway to the seaport city of Suez. According to the plans, the city will become the new administrative and financial capital of Egypt, housing the main government departments and ministries, as well as foreign embassies.

On 700 square kilometres (270 sq mi) total area, it would have a population of 6.5 million people. Officially, a major reason for the undertaking of the project was to relieve congestion in Cairo, which is already one of the world's most crowded cities.

The control center is organized by 4 sub-control rooms (NN1-1 SSN, NN1-2 SSN, NN2-1 QPN, NN2-2 QPN) and they all have the LITE console used in different configurations as appropriate.


Lite, a console that combines innovation, functionality, elegance and robustness. It is ergonomic and highly functional. Designed to revolutionize technological environments with high added value. Lite Console offers multipple advantatges and adapts to the project thanks to its main features:


A connectivity spot is located on the table top and totally accessible by the operator. Manufactured in aluminum, allows accessing to the power, HDMI, data or USB sockets inside the cable duct.



Compartment designed to house the operator's computer equipment, which is suspended at the rear of the workstation on one side of the functional arch. The compartment has a hinged front door that allows access to the interior. 



Through the functional arc, a steel framework for structural use, the wiring leads to the worksurface in a hidden way and easily accessible from the compartments.



Soft and extremely resistant, work surfaces are made of compact phenolic resin, 12mm thick.


All consoles are equipped with a single monitor support capable to adjust the operator's monitor at all levels. 



All workstations are delivered with an specific ergonomic chair for 24x7 operations environments. CXO model by Nightingale Chairs is our choice for any control room as it meets the necessary requirements.



Our consoles are ready to be customized with the corporate image of each customer. On the sides we dedicate an exclusive backlit area for such use.

Lite Console is a highly versatile technical furniture concept adaptable to any type of simple 24x7 operating room or any annex environment able to optimally manage the necessary equipment for such a position.

Lite console allows the creation of consoles with multiple workplaces, single or double-sided, interconnecting functional arcs creating consoles with sizes and features adapted to the maximum to the room and to the customer's needs.
