By effectively working together on one of the most challenging and demanding earth moving sites in the world, Hitachi and Gulf Earth Moving have helped open new economic opportunities for commerce in the Arabian Gulf.
All of the site-specific solutions, along with the unrivalled reliability of Hitachi’s globalized supply chain ensured that the production at the New Doha Port remained uninterrupted. The customized bucket, to help excavate hard limestone rocks, has helped a great deal in moving 30 million cubic meters of gravel in the allotted time and this has greatly contributed to the efficient work that is currently underway at the site.
At this moment we are looking at a lot of other projects in Qatar as we have a lot of big equipment now and are tendering for other tenders. So the idea from GEM is that we will stay in the region, in Qatar and in the Middle East, and maybe further on, you know with this kind of equipment and the production that we achieved with Hitachi over here, maybe we can go worldwide.
