ERG’s winning formula brings significant Middle East sales growth

Posted: Thursday 9th February 2012

ERG (Air Pollution Control) Ltd, the UK-based supplier of odour and air pollution control systems, reports record performance through its Middle East office, with half-year sales up 75% over the corresponding period last year.

The key driver of this success has been a strong performance supplying odour control systems to the UAE’s wastewater treatment sector. This performance is built on the excellent working relationships established with leading regional contracting customers, particularly Metito and JOG Union Engineering.

Recent wastewater projects include the completion of two-stage chemical scrubber systems for JOG Union. These provide odour control at the pumping stations on islands 3 and 4 of the Al Marjan Island resort development in Ras Al Khaimah. The project was completed on time against an accelerated schedule. ERG is also supplying multiple odour control units to Metito for phases 1 and 2 of the Abu Dhabi sewer rehabilitation.

All this follows recent success with industrial gas treatment projects, most notably the methane pre-treatment plant for Qatar-based fertilizer giant QAFCO in 2010. Here, ERG’s venturi scrubbers remove particulates from methane coming directly into the production facility from the undersea gas wells.

Reviewing the results, Middle-East Director, Richard Hanson commented: “We are particularly delighted to report strong Middle East growth in odour control for the wastewater sector, as this is ERG’s core business. Our business strategy sources engineering designs and precision components from the UK, where there is depth of experience, and combines this with local Gulf manufacture of the bulky vessels and tanks. Installations are then completed using ERG’s local project management and commissioning team. This has proved to be a winning formula, delivering leading technology at competitive prices, all tailored to local market requirements and managed through a client interface at our Middle East office.”
