The advanced and high speed facility at the plant reengineers the conventional process to save time and cost, complementing In-Country value and creating significant job opportunities for nationals.
Concrete as we know today is an engineered material, which over the decades has stood the test of time for infrastructure around the world. Hence this facility from Amiantit Oman will provide long lasting, time tested and economical solutions, which would significantly reduce project expenses for the country.
The Prestressed Steel Cylinder Pipes manufactured by the company is designed for use in high pressure water transmission networks and has the potential to significantly reduce import of expensive metallic pipes currently being used for the same application in Oman and the region.
The Precast Engineered Box Culverts will provide substantial progress on project timelines and savings by reducing dependence of imported workforce and would provide value added jobs for nationals in the factory.
