Dubai, United Arab Emirates: ME NewsWire: Wilo Middle East FZE, the leading pump manufacturer Headquartered in Germany, partook in the 18th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) held in Dubai during 4–6 October 2016 under the theme ‘At the Forefront of Sustainability.’ This marks the fourth consecutive participation of Wilo in this exhibition which is the largest platform gathering investors and decision makers from energy, water and environment sectors.
The participation of Wilo Middle East FZE, the Middle Eastern regional platform of Wilo SE, covered all applications displaying different types of pumps used in heating, air-conditioning and cooling, water supply, drainage and sewage and industrial processes.
“With its fourth participation in WETEX since 2013; Wilo Middle East FZE renews its confidence in this prestigious event,” commented Bishara Khalil, Managing Director of Wilo Middle East FZE. “Wilo has always been keen to foster its relationships with its customers who will be introduced in our booth to systems and services that we provide in support of our strategy ‘Wilo is going beyond pumps.’ WETEX presents a very unique occasion to share our success story in protecting the environment by saving power and water.”
He added: “Wilo has always been known for its strong product portfolio, especially in water management including sewage treatment, and raw water intake and transfer.”
For his part; Fouad Ahmed, Marketing Manager, Wilo Middle East noted: “WETEX provides a great opportunity to meet with our existing clients; attract new ones; educate the market about our latest technologies; and meet with contractors, consultants and government authorities. The Wilo slogan in the fair #beyondpumps is a testimony of its efforts to go beyond just pumps with innovative product and service developments.”
During its participation in WETEX 2016, Wilo displayed its special product the ‘Wilo-EMUport CORE’ which separates the sewage into solid material and pre-cleaned sewage, providing considerable advantages compared to conventional pump systems. With this technology larger solid materials don’t need to be transferred by the pump hydraulics, and the coarser particles are collected in the solids separation reservoirs, while the pre-cleaned sewage flows back through the pump into a collection reservoir. Once this reservoir is filled, one of the two pumps starts based on the liquid level, and pumps the pre-cleaned sewage out of the collection reservoir and through the solids separation reservoir.
Notably, this first solid separation system was installed recently at Dubai Metro (salahuddin metro station) to solve the problem of sewage blockage. It marked the first system to be installed in the Middle East, and Wilo is looking forward to install many systems in the region.
It’s worth noting that Wilo SE announced earlier this year an investment to build a local facility in JAFZA, Dubai in line with its Middle Eastern Expansion plans. The investment plan consists of constructing offices, a training center, warehouses, Wilo academy and a local assembly plant over an 8,000 square meter plot of land with the aim to serve clients and distributors in the Middle East. The expansion is projected to be completed by the end of 2017.
