Terex Washing Systems (TWS) are responding to increased washing enquiries and demand in the Gulf region which are being facilitated through the five dedicated TWS distributors in this area. In an effort to develop the Gulf markets, TWS appointed a dedicated Gulf Region Sales Manager, in August 2013, to facilitate the additional growth and provide a dedicated line of support for both the TWS distributor network and customers. The five dedicated distributors are located in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, UAE and Qatar, who have committed team members focusing in washing, each with extensive knowledge, expertise and service capabilities in washing solutions. The dealers and customers in these regions are further supported by the TWS dedicated engineering and aftersales technicians.
To date TWS have installed a number of static, modular and mobile plants in the Gulf region, which are successfully processing crushed quarry stone to produce high quality sand, typically sized 0-5, 5-12, 12-22 mm. The most popular concepts to date have been the Finesmaster Compact and Bucketwheel ranges, both unique sand plants, ideally suited for single and double grade sand applications. Both ranges are particularly suited to high wearing abrasive sands as the buckets reduce wear on the rubber lined centrifugal pump and in the case of the Finesmaster, reduces wear on the cyclones.
Recently there has been an increased interest in true modular washing concepts, particularly TWS newest solutions, such as the Aggresand ™ and Aggrescrub ™ ranges.
"Increased enquiries and demand is ultimately being driven by the returned growth in the GCC civil construction market , with a total $59 billion in contracts awarded last year, a level not seen since 2008", according to MEED Insight’s GCC Construction Report 2014. It goes on to state "In addition the civil construction market has been the largest sector in the GCC projects, driven mainly by booming economies and populations in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The current value of live civil construction projects is just over $1.3trillion. Furthermore Saudi Arabia is the region’s largest civil construction market, by value of work under way, with $81 billion in contracts under construction. The UAE has $66 billion worth and Qatar $32 billion."
Florin Ioia, TWS Regional Sales Manager in Middle East, commented "The return of growth in the Gulf markets is extremely encouraging and presents exciting opportunities for TWS. We are continually developing our business and have to date supplied multiple washing solutions to a number of key customers in the Gulf Region. We have a strategy in place to continue to expand and maximize on the massive potential that is here. TWS provide a one stop shop for all washing solutions and with the continued introduction of new innovative washplants, TWS are set to increase market share in this region. We are excited to work with customers to solve their washing problems, add value to their business and provide effective and efficient solutions."
