The contract, which is worth more than €4 million, is Rheinhütte Pumpen’s largest ever single order.
Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Co) has commissioned a new plant for the production of fertilisers at the Waad Al-Shamal phosphate industrial complex. The heavy duty horizontal and vertical process pumps that Rheinhütte Pumpen will provide are made from high-quality, duplex stainless steel, which meet the special requirements concerning corrosive media.
In 2008, Rheinhütte Pumpen supplied Ma’aden with 68 pumps for the first stage of development of the fertiliser complex.
Commenting on this latest order, Rheinhütte Pumpen manager Dr Jürgen Weinerth said: “The positive experiences of the fertiliser producer worldwide with Rheinhütte Pumpen were crucial for the awarding of the contract. The pumps delivered in 2008 are still running reliably and without damage. Also, the proximity to the customer played a decisive role in setting up this renewed collaboration, Division Rheinhütte Pumpen is represented with a local sales office in the Middle East.”
