Dubai: A range of leading Northern Ireland companies specialising in the mining, quarrying and bulk materials handling sector are exhibiting at The Mining Show. The companies will demonstrate the strong and vibrant engineering ecosystem in Northern Ireland, producing success stories across a number of industries.

In attendance at The Mining Show 2021 was Northern Ireland’s Minister for the Economy, Mr. Gordon Lyons, who is participating in his first official visit to the United Arab Emirates this week.

Speaking at The Mining Show 2021, Mr. Gordon Lyons, Minister for the Economy in Northern Ireland, commented: “Mining and quarrying are central for the enabling of critical industries in the Middle East and Africa. Northern Ireland businesses have built up decades of experience in the sector, and are bringing such expertise and success stories to the region. With a growth of over 40% in exports of the Materials handling machinery sector, we are keen to continue to support companies from Northern Ireland grow in this region.”

Northern Ireland companies have established a strong track-record of working to provide solutions to infrastructure projects across the Middle East and Africa. CDE, a leading company in wet processing, has recently commissioned a turnkey 75 tonnes per hour silica sand washing plant in Saudi Arabia for Muadinoon Mining Company. The new plant will use CDE Technology to produce 0 – 600 micron high quality silica sand while also significantly reducing costly water consumption.

Powerscreen, world-leading manufacturer of mobile crushing and screening equipment for the mining and quarrying industries, has been working closely with its Ethiopian dealer,  who has successfully sold and commissioned the first train of PT400X Jaw crusher, MT1000 cone crusher, and Chieftain1700 screen in 2021. The equipment will be used by one of the region’s major construction companies, for use on one of their prestigious projects within Ethiopia.

Also exhibiting at the show is Telestack, which offers bulk-handling solutions and successfully delivered aggregates unloading systems for the Port of Salalah in Oman.

Sensoteq, which provides wireless sensors for heavy industry, has recently expanded its market reach to Africa, completing its first installations in mining applications to market-leading South African manufacturer, Vibramech. This system ensures that all aspects of Vibramech’s vibrating equipment will be monitored 24/7, providing added insurance for machine performance.
