New Abu Dhabi-based company will manufacture and distribute steel reinforced plastic pipes to customers throughout the Middle East


Tuesday 19 September 2006, Dubai, UAE: A new company in Abu Dhabi, Al Dhafra Pipes has established a custom-built factory to manufacture and distribute steel reinforced plastic (polyethylene) pipes.  The combination of these two proven materials in one pipe creates a product never seen in the region before and promises to revolutionise the drainage and sewage industries throughout the Middle East.


Al Dhafra Pipes steel reinforced plastic pipes, more durable than conventional pipes available in the region are ideally suited to combat aggressive soils and saline groundwater conditions which characterise the Middle East.


“Steel reinforced plastic pipes offer the perfect solution for the challenges associated with irrigation and drainage across the region,” said Jason Thomas, general manager, Al Dhafra Pipes.  “The unique combination of steel reinforcing with plastic makes the pipes stronger and more durable against the affects of corrosion, chemicals, harsh fluids and soils.”


“Additionally,” Thomas went on to say, “clients save money in the long run on infrastructure costs because the pipe’s unique strength and durability ensures their lifespan is substantially greater than most other pipes available.”

Al Dhafra Pipes steel reinforced plastic pipes have been independently tested according to international and local standards and are the lightest pipe available on the market, eliminating the need for heavy installation machinery and additional labour, offering clients further cost savings.


The pipes will be used for the gravity flow transmission of irrigation and storm drainage water and the collection and transfer of sewage from households and buildings to treatment plants or sewage overflow systems. 


Al Dhafra Pipes steel reinforced plastic pipes can be produced as perforated pipe for subsoil drainage applications and used to collect and transfer surface water through ground seepage into the pipeline.  This eliminates the need for open drainage channels and reduces water tables.

Emaar unveils new Egypt project

By Saifur Rahman, Staff Reporter - Gulf News

Dubai: Emaar Properties yesterday announced the development of a Dh6.3 billion mixed-use project in Egypt, Marassi Development, that will stretch across a 7-km strip of tourist resort land, the company said in a statement.

With this, the total value of Emaar's two Egypt ventures has crossed Dh21.30 billion, as the Dubai-based developer presses ahead with massive mixed-use and tourism projects in Egypt.

Emaar recently won the land in an auction.

Marassi stretches over a 1,544-acre tourist resort project located on Sidi Abdel Rahman and Alamein. To be completed within five-and-a-half years of receiving the land, Emaar will develop a resort with up to 3,000 hotel rooms, a marina, golf course, hospital, healthcare facilities and total township development.

Emaar has five master planned mixed-use community projects in Egypt, inlcuding Cairo Heights, Uptown Cairo, Smart Village, Bibliotheca Alexandria and Marassi development.

"The value of the other projects has not yet been announced as the master plans are in progress," said an Emaar source.

Strong fundamentals

Work is afoot on Emaar's other projects including the 22 billion Egyptian pound (Dh14 billion) master planned community at the highest point of downtown Cairo Uptown Cairo.

"As an emerging market with strong market fundamentals, Egypt is of key importance to Emaar Properties in building the company's international portfolio," said Dr Nader Mohammad, managing director, Emaar Misr for Development. "This reflects Emaar's commitment to its Vision 2010 of becoming one of the world's most valuable companies.

"Emaar projects in Egypt are niche developments that lead to creation of self-sustaining master-planned communities, which will invigorate local economies. The projects also generate employment opportunities," he added.

Uptown Cairo is being developed on the highest point of downtown Cairo and will integrate residential, commercial and retail components.
