Project wins for Dubai ready mix company required fast mobilisation of truck-mounted pumps
The Italian concrete-equipment manufacturer CIFA has sold seven K58L truck-mounted concrete pumps to the Dubai-based Al Falah Ready Mix, according to Wajih Eit, CIFA’s vice head in the Middle East.
Part of the larger Abu Dhabi-located Al Falah Holding, the ready mix company is one of the largest in the region, and its current projects include the Doha Metro – Red Line North project.
It also has an exclusive concrete-supply deal for a major housing project in Jazan, Saudi Arabia. According to Al Falah’s website, the Jazan Southern Border Housing Complex will consist of 7,000 homes built at a cost of $1.9bn by the Ministry of Interior.
The project wins in Doha and in Jazan required the fast mobilisation of equipment, and the K58Ls were already in stock at the main CIFA factory in Italy. Of the seven units, three were sent to Saudi Arabia, two to the UAE and two to Qatar.
The largest in CIFA’s Steeltech series of truck-mounted pumps and built over five axles, the K58L has a six-section boom with a maximum height of 57.1 metres.
According to Eit, Al Falah Ready Mix has a fleet of around 40 truck-mounted pumps, 30 batching plants, and over 200 truck mixers, of which 50% are CIFA products.
CIFA, part of Zoomlion Group, sells a full range of concrete equipment products, including batching plants, transit mixers and underground machinery.
