Powerscreen's Mobile Equipment' Success in Oman

Powerscreen's Mobile Equipment Success in Oman

Powerscreen, one of the world’s leading providers of mobile crushing, screening and washing equipment, is fuelling efficiency and productivity for its customers in Oman.

“The Omanian market is dominated by wheel and track mobile plants, within which the ratio is greatly in favour of track mounted units. Customers prefer compact equipment that can be moved from site to another at a rapid pace with minimal logistical hassles, giving the large number of jobs. Customers are finding tracked crushers and screens the right fit for their projects, enhanced by the fact that Powerscreen plants have a lower initial cost, operating cost and maintenance cost,” says Imran Kazi, Manager-Products, General Engineering Services Est, Oman.

Prior to Powerscreen entering into the Omanian market, there were a small number of mobile crushing and screening plants operating for road building companies. The market was dominated by static equipment, but there has been an increased acceptance of mobile crushing and screening equipment by quarry operators in Oman.

Mining project developers and mine owners want to remain focused on their core business. Rapidly rising costs of quarry operations encourages them to outsource the quarry operation to contractors who own crushing units. This has led to a change in market dynamics and the expansion of the mobile crushing and screening market.

General Engineering Services Est, the Powerscreen Dealer in Oman, entered into the market with mobile crushing and screening plants and soon found its sales figures going up. The dealership sold more than 45 crushers and screens in four years.

Sami Saeed Al Bahr Al Rawas, quarry owner from Nasr Arabia, previously purchased static plants until being introduced to the concept of mobile crushing and screening plants by the sales team at General Engineering Services Est. Nasr Arabia now own four Powerscreen® mobile crushers and screens, a Pegson 1412 Trakpactor, a Pegson XR400, a H6203R and a Warrior 1800.

Sami Saeed ordered a combination of a Pegson XR400 and a Warrior 1800 Screen for a construction and highway contract and uses the produced aggregate as road base material.

The Pegson 1412 Trakpactor and H6203R screen are working in combination producing 250 tph of crushed aggregate that it uses for ready mix concrete plant, asphalt plant and road based material. “I think the mobile crushers and screens are amazing machines,” says Sami Saeed. “It is vital to have a low fuel consumption and high productivity level – and these mobile plants have both as compared to the static plants I owned previously.”

Nasr Arabia is so impressed by Powerscreen Crushers and Screens that the company has placed an order for a Pegson XH500 and Chieftain 2100X. According to Sami Saeed, “being mobile, compact and remotely operated enables the tracked units to operate close to my quarry site, thereby reducing the use of large conveyors belts, in turn balancing the operating and maintenance cost. Tracked equipment has other advantages as they can be commissioned and dismantled quickly, thereby reducing waste when compared with a static plant.”
