Japan is still meeting its international development support responsibilities through the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA). Our special correspondent reports from the West Bank and Jordan.



The market for cloud-based contact centre solutions is set to grow. But what issues lie hidden behind the ‘cloud cover’?



LAST YEAR SAW some very important changes in the fortunes of both the Middle East and North African markets for generating sets. For some there was exceptional growth, but for others disappointment largely brought about by the effects of the ‘Arab Spring’ in the countries of North Africa. Whereas the markets of the Middle East experienced a dramatic increase in demand of over one third to 10,360 MWe, those of North Africa declined by over twenty per cent to 1,500 MWe. Despite this the entire region saw transactions amounting to US$1.9bn, slightly over a third more than in 2010. Elsewhere in this issue, Stephen Williams visits Jordan and the West Bank to look at the crucial projects supported by the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA), which range from water, power and education through healthcare and tourism.

BRIEFLY ■ QATAR RAISED ITS budget surplus estimate to US$15 billion for the fiscal year that ended in March as revenue was higher than previously expected, preliminary data showed. The 2011/12 fiscal surplus of the world's top exporter of liquefied natural gas was equivalent to 8.6 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), according to the economy and finance ministry calculation, up from the original US$6.18 billion plan. The budget surplus is the highest Qatar has recorded since 2005/06. In the previous fiscal year, Qatar posted a revised surplus of US$3.71 billion, or 2.9 per cent of GDP, the data showed. Qatar had previously reported a surplus of US$3.52 billion. The OPEC member's expenditure surged over 16 per cent to a record US$45.5 billion last fiscal year, according to the data, above US$43.6 billion reported in the prospectus and US$38.4 billion planned.

Tunisia to receive loans TUNISIA HAS SAID that it expects to secure loans worth US$1 billion from the World Bank and the African Development Bank (AfDB) to support its 2012 budget. Tunisia's Investment Minister Riadh Bettaib said each institution would lend US$500mn. “The loans will support the budget for the last six months of 2012," he stated. The funds would be used to help infrastructure projects and support job creation. Tunisia has received several bilateral soft loans this year, aimed at helping the country recover from the revolution that overthrew the former leader Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011. The Saudi Fund for Development will also extend a total of about US$220mn in low-interest loans making the first time Saudi Arabia has provided a loan.

Egypt requests US$4.8 billion loan EGYPT HAS FORMALLY requested a US$4.8 billion number of Egyptian governmnets have loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), negotiated with the IMF to try and secure emergency funding but nothing was ever able to a presidential spokesman announced.

Saudi's real GDP growth to hit six per cent, IMF THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY Fund (IMF) has said that Saudi Arabia's real GDP is expected to be six per cent this year due to higher oil revenues. The Saudi real oil GDP was likely to grow by 4.5 per cent this year, while the real non-oil GDP was expected to hit 6.5 per cent, said the IMF report. The pace of economic expansion accelerated last year taking the Kingdom's overall real GDP growth to 7.1 per cent. The Saudi non-oil economy grew by eight per cent during the year, the highest since 1981. Higher oil revenues, said the report, have strengthened fiscal and external balances and have boosted social spending. New initiatives have seen a rise in real government spending by 20

per cent, the IMF stated. "Despite increased spending and strong import growth, fiscal and external surpluses strengthened further in 2011 as oil revenues,” noted the report. The IMF did warn that Saudi Arabia needs to “forestall any inflation pressures engendered by robust growth through a proactive use of liquidity and macro-prudential policy tools. While the government has built significant policy buffers, fiscal spending is above the level consistent with an intergenerationally equitable draw-down of oil wealth.” The IMF concluded that "the near term economic outlook was broadly favourable, although geopolitical risks and oil prices remain sources of volatility."

Investment rose last year

■ INVESTMENT CORPORATION OF Dubai (ICD) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Spanish-based multinational bank Banco Santander to explore potential areas of cooperation to jointly offer financial services in the region. Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Fiscal Committee and board member of ICD Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum said, "We are confident that the signing of the MoU marks a first step in a mutually beneficial relationship between our organisations to share experiences and explore opportunities." Following the signing, a joint task force will be established to identify business opportunities of mutual interest in the Middle East, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions. Chairman of Banco Santander Emilio Botin added, "We look forward to exploring opportunities to work with ICD in the region and beyond."

TOTAL FOREIGN and domestic investments in Middle East countries rose in 2011 by 1.2 per cent to US$496bn, up from US$490bn in 2010, a report said. Algeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE accounted for 63 per cent of the investments, or US$312.5bn, according to the Arab Investment and Export Credit Guarantee Corporation. The study covered 21 of the 22 members of the Arab League. It estimated total capital investments in the 21 Arab nations would reach US$4.26 trillion over the next six years up until 2017, with Saudi Arabia accounting for more than US$1 trillion.

Business activity in the UAE rises BUSINESS ACTIVITY IN the UAE's non-oil private sector increased slightly in July over June, according to the HSBC UAE Purchasing Managers' Index. The index, which measures the performance of the manufacturing and services sectors, rose to 53.4 points last month from 53.2 in June. “Overall the data suggests the non-oil economy is showing some resilience," said Simon Williams, chief economist for the Middle East and North Africa at HSBC. UAE firms saw output growth slow again to 53.7 points in July, the weakest level since March, from 54.6 in June. New orders remained steady at 58.4 points. Growth in new export orders fell steeply to 50.6 points, the slowest rate since June 2010, from 54.5 in the previous month, with firms saying sales were increasingly difficult to secure. Employment growth across the UAE's non-oil private sector rose again in July, reaching the highest rate since April 2011, the survey showed. “The positive output, new order and employment readings are particularly encouraging given the troubled global economy," added Williams. Business in the UAE remains positive

Morocco and Jordan get financial support from the IMF THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY Fund (IMF) has approved new loans for Morocco and Jordan as both economies come under strain from regional instability and the ongoing euro zone crisis. The IMF has agreed to a US$6.2 billion precautionary line of credit for Morocco over a two year period, which the IMF said the government would treat as “insurance” in case economic conditions deteriorate and it faced sudden financing needs. Jordan on the other hand will receive a US$2 billion loan as the country was hit by regional protests and faced continued instability from its neighbours. Its economic growth slowed to 3 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of this year due to sluggish private sector growth. IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said

Jordan “is facing external and fiscal challenges stemming largely from exogenous shocks to its energy sector.” Morocco's economy has been hard hit by a decline in trade from the euro zone. The country’s finance ministry said the economy “remains vulnerable to external shocks mostly linked to a worsening recession in the euro zone and a new surge in commodity prices.” "High oil prices have contributed to a build-up of fiscal and external pressures. The authorities have already taken action to address these vulnerabilities, and are committed to maintaining sound policies," Lagarde added. Morocco's fiscal and current account deficits surged last year to their highest levels in many years.

Investors have not abandoned Lebanon

Bahrain - a ‘business gateway’

LEBANON MAY BE facing daunting political and security challenges, but not all investors have thrown in the towel yet on multimillion-dollar projects in the country. Nabil Itani, head of the Investment Development Authority (IDA) of Lebanon says some investors remain undaunted. “Contrary to the general impression, investors who have approached IDAL to facilitate their projects and receive incentives are still determined to complete the work they started two years ago,” he told The Daily Star. “None of them have decided to quit Lebanon because they know that the country will eventually overcome its current problems,” Itani added. One such enterprise that is confident of Lebanon’s future is Beirut-based Horizon Management, a firm which is currently putting the final touches on the US$45mn Staybridge Suites Hotel in the neighborhood of Verdun. The hotel, which will create 170 new jobs, will receive tax incentives from the IDAL this year. “There are other examples [of major projects] in different regions of the country as well,” Itani said. He added that IDAL had processed more than US$1.5bn worth of projects since 2004, and in 2012 alone the agency was seeing close to US$300mn worth of projects in different parts of the country. However, Itani’s upbeat assessment of the investment situation is not shared by most businesses and merchants, who have reported sharp drops in sales and hotel reservations since the Syrian crisis erupted 17 months ago. Many hotels in Beirut and Mount Lebanon have been compelled to offer significant discounts to lure tourists, but even these bargains have failed to persuade Gulf Arabs to visit the country.

BAHRAIN IS LOOKING to become a gateway ‘to the wider GCC which is currently estimated to have a combined gross domestic product of US$1 trillion’. This was revealed recently by Sheikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, adviser to HRH the Crown Prince for political and economic affairs and board member of the Economic Development Board. He said Bahrain's government has invited Malaysia's business community to invest in the kingdom's infrastructure, Islamic finance and manufacturing sectors. Sheikh Mohammed said the country is looking to expand its government spending budget and hopes that Malaysian investors will be able to work with the country. "This expansionary budget is likely to have a strong stimulus effect, with particular investment being made in social housing and infrastructure spending," he said in an interview with Malaysia's Bernama news agency. "There are a number of opportunities in Bahrain and, through Bahrain, to the wider GCC, in particular through trade and investment in construction, agriculture, food production, information & communications technology, education, science and technology as well as tourism," he said.

Muslim tourist boom forecast AN EXPECTED WORLDWIDE boom in Muslim tourism is reflected in the growing availability of amenities such as halal spas and airport prayer rooms, experts say. Thanks to their growing number and affluence, Muslims - especially from the oil-rich Middle East - are travelling like never before, and it is a trend that looks Kuala Lumpur - a popular choice set to gather pace. Spending by Muslim tourists, growing faster than the global rate, is forecast to reach US$192 billion a year by 2020, up from US$126 billion in 2011, according to a study by two companies specialising in the market. The study, made available to AFP, was conducted in 47 countries by Singapore-based halal travel specialist Crescentrating, along with DinarStandard, a US-based firm that tracks the Muslim lifestyle market. Crescentrating chief executive Fazal Bahardeen said Muslimmajority states such as Egypt, Malaysia and Indonesia were already favourite destinations, but non-Islamic countries are now "taking a serious look" at Muslim holidaymakers.

LED lighting set to dominate Technical Review spoke to John Storey, global product and business development director - LED Lighting, Honeywell ED&S about the growth of the LED market in the region


ED LIGHTING IS becoming the fastest growing LED application segment and is being used increasingly across the Middle East region.

Storey noted, “The LED market in the Middle East region is firmly establishing itself and exceeding forecasted growth with accelerated adoption.” Sustainability, in particular, is a topic of growing interest both in the Middle East region and around the world. Governments are increasingly turning their attention to promoting the ‘green buildings’ concept – and it is important that LED is a key part of such initiatives. According to McKinsey & Company, LED lighting has the potential to be the dominant technology in domestic and commercial lighting by 2015.

Countries in the Gulf are all pushing different energy agendas but they are all focused on promoting environmentally-friendly products and energy-efficient technologies are gaining momentum and plans are being drawn up to address these issues. “Within the Gulf these plans tend to have a long term view, and the pressure is not the same as in other regions that are making ‘quick fixes’ to achieve short-term goals,” said Storey. The widespread adoption of LED applications in the Middle East will be critical for numerous sectors in the region as the market environment evolves. “Considering the region’s high activity in hotels, infrastructure and commercial establishments, LED offers an opportunity for developers and builders to demonstrate ecological responsibility differentiate and save on energy costs,” he added. The energy-saving benefits of LED lighting are a big factor in the growing interest that the technology is seeing, especially in light of recently enforced energy efficiency targets. The use of LED technology for infrastructure, commercial and public spaces can help ease the burden on electricity consumption, with the technology often resulting in a 50 per cent energy saving, according to Storey. He explained that the areas that Honeywell is seeing the fastest uptake include infrastructure projects, such as tunnels, and public utility spaces such as airports because ights are on 24/7. Commercial applications are also increasing in areas such as warehouses with a focus on high-bay and panel lighting for these applications.

According to McKinsey & Company, LED lighting has the potential to be the dominant technology in domestic and commercial lighting by 2015.

John Storey

“For the Middle East region we are actively pursuing the opportunities in warehouse and cold storages, car parks and shopping malls. The region presents strong potential for LED in all these areas,” remarked Storey. There are many benefits that LED can provide, including environmental advantages, lower maintenance costs and longer lamp life. “LED lighting alone can bring significant savings, and we have found that when we combine LED lighting with good sensor control, savings can exceed previous expectations,” explained Storey. One hurdle that LED technology faces in the region is that energy costs are favourable in the Middle East region compared to other global regions and the return on investment for using LEDs can take longer to become apparent. Storey concluded, “LED technology will replace traditional lighting once price parity and the ROI are recognised by users. The question is when. Honeywell believe the answer is now.” ■

BRIEFLY ■ INGERSOLL RAND HAS opened its new regional headquarters in the Business Bay area of Dubai. The new office will serve as the Middle East and Africa centre for all Ingersoll Rand strategic brands. The new headquarters will be spread out over two floors in the 56-storey U-Bora commercial tower. The office will cater for a number of different brands, including Ingersoll Rand Industrial Technologies (air compressor systems, tools, pumps, material handling), Trane (air-conditioning solutions), and Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies (Schlage, CISA, Von Duprin, Briton, LCN, Bricard, Interflex). “The new space is a great platform for the company, our employees and most importantly, our customers.

PwC survey looks at strategies needed for regional cities to thrive PRICEWATERHOUSE COOPERS (PWC) revealed the results of its first Middle East Local Government and Cities Survey showing that local governments are facing challenges in executing plans, attributing the difficulties to the lack of funding (25 per cent), non-supportive organisational culture (15 per cent) and poor project management (25 per cent). PwC interviewed over 12 local government The survey titled Turning Vision into Reality looked at agencies spread across the region for the survey. the implications for local governments that are looking to implement overall strategies for their cities. "Local governments must be driven by a clearly articulated strategy, and empowered with necessary tools to effectively implement them and manage the execution processes," said Rami Nazer, Middle East Government and Public Sector Leader, PwC. "A committed leadership, supportive organisational culture and availability of finance are the three key enablers for successful strategy implementation," he added. Although firms across the Middle East are proceeding with strategy implementation, a significant proportion of the survey respondents indicated that they do not have a structured mechanism for the prioritisation of their strategic initiatives. A solid leadership is important and 90 per cent of the respondents highlighted the role of a solid leadership in ensuring the implementation of the strategy making it by far the most detrimental factor identified by the PwC survey. PwC said that this highlighted the implications of leadership development programmes in the region. All of the survey respondents identified partnership with the private sector as being either very important or important. However despite the consensus as to the importance of partnerships, 80 per cent of survey respondents have not implemented public-private partnerships, with 15 per cent of them planning to develop partnership agreements with the private sector in the near future.

Kuwait meeting peak electricity demands PHASE TWO OF the Sabiya combined cycle power plant project in Kuwait recently began commercial operation in time to meet the country’s peak electricity demands during the hot summer months. The government-owned Sabiya station is Kuwait’s largest power plant, which is using GE’s advanced gas turbine-generator technology, in combined cycle operations, to produce more than 2,000megawatts (MW) of additional electricity for the grid. Kuwait’s power demand is growing at approximately seven to 10 per cent per year, and at this rate, the country estimates it will reach national peak load demand of 25,000 MW by the year 2025. GE has been working alongside the government to drive operational efficiencies and capacity enhancements by providing its world-class technologies. Last June, six GE 9FA gas turbines initially operated in simple cycle mode to add nearly 1,400 MW to the grid when phase one of the plant was brought online. This recent upgrade to combined cycle mode (phase 2) boosted the plant’s output to more than 2,000 MW, increasing Kuwait’s power generating capacity by nearly 20 per cent. The combined-cycle conversion enables the plant to increase its output without any increase in fuel consumption, boosting its operating efficiency. The increased power adds capacity to the country’s power generation to help fuel Kuwait’s robust business and residential growth. “The successful completion of phase two of the Sabiya combined cycle power project is a reflection of the Ministry of Electricity & Water’s commitment to provide reliable electricity for the people of Kuwait,” said Joseph Anis, president and CEO, GE Energy for the Middle East. “Working closely with the ministry for over 40 years, this very important conversion project demonstrates our growing commitment to support the electricity needs of the country with efficiency enhancing solutions that are The Sabiya plant in Kuwait recently began commercial operations also more flexible and scalable.”

Elaf to build four new hotels in Saudi Arabia THE ELAF GROUP of Companies, a leader in Saudi travel, tourism and hospitality, has announced the commencement of construction of four new hotels in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The total construction cost of these new projects has been valued at US$106.6mn and will be located across Jeddah, Makkah and Madina. The announcement follows Elaf Group’s recent achievement of a 30 per cent revenue increase during Q1 of 2012 over the same quarter last year, and has given the Group the confidence to double the number of its hotel rooms to 5,000 before the end of the year. According to the Elaf Group, the company’s robust growth over the first three months of 2012 can be attributed to their continuing initiatives to provide best-in-class tourism services and contribute to the kingdom’s move towards tourism and sustainable development. Moreover, the company has reaffirmed its core focus on playing a major part in the country’s efforts towards ‘Saudisation,’ which aims to provide more Saudi nationals with employment opportunities in the tourism sector. “The announcement of these four new projects is in line with our efforts to expand our investment portfolio.

are aimed for completion from 2012 to 2014 depending on property, include the ‘Elaf Bakkah’ and the ‘Elaf Al Kawthar’ in Makkah; the ‘Elaf Galleria’ in Jeddah and another hotel in Madina to be named later. These projects are part of our continuous efforts to address the demands of the increasing number of tourists visiting the kingdom. We will remain steadfast in our commitment to support the government’s move to promote Saudi tourism and help the sector become a major contributor to the country’s economy,” said Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, President of Elaf Group.

Powerscreen sells first dual powered screen in Oman POWERSCREEN, A LEADING provider of mobile crushing and screening equipment, recently sold its first dual powered screening machine into Oman. Oman has an abundance of river bed gravel that is widely used for construction material after due processing. One place where this naturally fragmented material is available is Barka, around 60km from Muscat. Alisco Strong Plant, one of the leading road contractors in Oman, operates a crushing and screening facility in Barka that uses available river bed gravel to produce aggregates for asphalt and other materials, including granular sub-base (GSB) and aggregate base course. The Barka deposits, with their high quantities of silt and clay, produces sand that is prone to rejection due to inherent impurities in the feed material. The feed material is 0-300mm with more than 50 per cent of the material below 65mm. Due to scarcity of water in Oman, a washing plant was considered to be the option of last resort. Shaikh Ali Al Busaidi, Chairman of Alisco Strong Plant, said that he was in a difficult situation to cope with the need of crushed aggregate both from his various construction sites and for the asphalt plant which was at many times underutilised. An established customer of Powerscreen’s local distributor Genserv, Alisco Strong Plant consulted the Genserv sales team to come up with a solution. Alisco Strong Plant was already using a Powerscreen® 1412 Trackpactor crusher and a Powerscreen® Chieftain 2100X screen. Genserv’s crushing and screening team visited Alisco’s Barka site and came up with a simple solution: to use a Warrior 1800 scalping screen. To address the concerns of Alisco’s requirement to use electricity as an option, Genserv’s team proposed the Warrior 1800 with dual power option. The idea

Powerscreen’s Warrior 1800

was to screen the deposit material into 0-50mm, 50-150mm and +150mm, which can be used as GSB material and feed rock material for additional crushing. Convinced with Genserv’s recommendations, Alisco immediately placed an order for two Warrior 1800 units with the dual power option. Both machines were commissioned at the Barka site and the plants are comfortably producing 400 tonnes per hour of different size material. The Powerscreen dual power system provides flexibility to address a number of challenges and opportunities, where electricity is cheaper than diesel fuel or where only electricity is permitted on sites. The mobile dual power screens also offer quick and easy setup.

Regional CEO’s remain optimistic ACCORDING TO MIDDLE East focused analysis of PwC’s 15th Annual Global CEO survey, Middle East CEOs remain optimistic about delivering growth over the next 12 months despite the lingering after-effects of the Arab Spring and a potentially worsening Eurozone debt crisis. Business confidence remains stable in the region, with 60 per cent of CEOs from the Middle East showing confidence of their revenue growth prospects in 2012 compared to 40 per cent globally. This is also higher compared with 56 per cent a year ago. Despite the instability of global economies, executives surveyed have comfort with the local economies where two-thirds of global business leaders are expecting their operations in the Middle East to grow over the next 12 months. Compiled through interviews with 1,258 CEOs in 60 countries including 30 from the Middle East, the supplement titled “Looking Ahead: Delivering growth and value’’ highlighted that CEOs from the region are citing two main factors as key to driving growth: emerging markets and mobilising talent. Like their peers worldwide Middle Eastern companies have a big focus on entering new markets. Eighty-three per cent of Middle East based CEOs believe that emerging economies are of key importance to their company’s future with interest focused on nearby areas such as Turkey, India and Africa – a sign that the region hopes to turn its geographic location at the nexus of three continents into a competitive advantage. In addition to emerging markets, talent was cited as being of vital importance to business leaders with 63 per cent of CEOs based in the Middle East seeing talent constraints as a potential risk to their growth. The demand for talent is particularly strong in the Middle East, where 43 per cent of companies versus 28 per cent globally, expect to grow their headcount by more than five per cent in 2012,. Experts have cited that the Middle East’s workforce is forecast to continue growing in the coming decades as other regions peak or begin to decline, which will provide an ample supply of workers.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Four 2012


Japanese aid continues to make a difference Japan is still meeting its international development support responsibilities through the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA). Looking at projects supporting water, power, education, healthcare and tourism in both Jordan and the West Bank, Stephen Williams discovered just how vital this continuing Japanese aid is to the Middle East.


APAN’S DEVELOPMENT AGENCY, the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) is the world’s biggest bilateral official development agency since the 2008 integration of the old JICA and a significant part of the Japan Bank for International Co-operation. Subsequently, JICA’s focus has moved away from its traditional East Asian operations, as improvements to this region’s economy have been made, towards other areas of the world such as the Middle East and Africa. It provides loans, grants and technical assistance. Attempting to investigate JICA’s projects in Jordan and the West Bank in one short week was, of course, a near impossible task. But JICA’s media field trip still covered a number of important initiatives. Jordan is central to JICA’s Middle East operations and having flown in to Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport (itself the recipient of JICA funding to upgrade security) we began our visits north of the capital in the small town of Ajloun’s Anjara school. With 720 children, aged between six years and 15-years old, Anjara’s primary

department is largely play oriented. The presence of two Japanese volunteer teachers was evidence of a crucial aspect of Japanese support. With 75 projects across the Middle East and North Africa region, there are more than 2,500 JICA volunteers lending assistance. Over the years, JICA has dispatched more than 40,000 volunteers worldwide. Kindergarten and primary school classes at Anjara have been mixed for a few years with gender streaming only taking place from 10-years onwards, and the next school we visited, Irbid II school at Irbid camp outside Amman, was girls only. Here we met five girls from the school council who told us their ambitions. One wanted to be a geologist, others doctors and pilots, but as the school’s headmistress, Fatima Azaiza, was to tell me, the real challenge is finding the fees for these clearly bright girls to get into university. Although described as a camp, in reality Irbid is more a suburb with an air of permanence about it, consisting entirely of brick and concrete buildings. Such is the demand for girl’s education in Irbid

that the school operates two shifts each day – morning and afternoon, each with different staff and pupils. We were told that today there are more than two million Palestinian refugees living in Jordan in major camps like Irbid. The following day began with a near 200- km drive south of Amman to Karak, the site of an important 12th century medieval castle and a fine little museum within its walls. Karak is one of four major tourism projects that JICA is supporting. Karak Castle clearly has the potential to attract tourists as well as providing an important asset for school-teachers who bring classes from as far as Amman.

Urban demand Similarly, our next visits were to two other museums, the Dead Sea Panoramic Complex and then the National Museum in Amman. The Dead Sea Panoramic Complex, as it name suggests, overlooks the world’s most saline lake. The museum outlines both the extraordinary geology and geography of what is know as the ‘Ghor Haditha’ region, and also its environmental challenges created by the increasing use of water for agricultural irrigation, growing urban demand, and the extraction of potash. Only 20 per cent of the original waters that fed this sea are now reaching it, creating a 30 metre shrinkage of the shoreline each year. JICA’s support for this museum, run by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, includes funding a solar panel array that helps power the building. Driving north back to the capital, we passed the many tourism hotels that are located alongside the Dead Sea offering spa

The Zai Water Treatment Plant

Analysis breaks and the mineral mud baths that are associated with this region. Arriving in Amman, we toured a new permanent exhibition, under construction, at the National Museum that traced the region’s human development - from prehistory, through the various empires, to present day and the modern state of Jordan. Tourism is only one strand of JICA’s approach to supporting Jordan’s development. The Zai Water Treatment (ZWT) plant, for example, had received funding from JICA to replace four pumping stations and increase the plant’s capacity to supply 40 per cent of Amman’s near two million inhabitants. One in three Jordanians live in the capital, and the country as a whole is said to be the fourth most waterstressed nation in the world. Amman’s water supply needs to be rationed, and it is notable that just as the skylines of most cities are dotted with satellite dishes, in most Jordanian and West Bank cities they also feature black heavyduty plastic water tanks on roofs that are filled up when water supplies are on line.

Capacity Water is a national resource in Jordan, and abstraction always requires a government licence. The ZWT’s Production and Quality Director, Haitham Al-Kilani, who works for the parastatal Miyahuna Company, described how JICA’s support in replacing pumps and electric control systems has allowed ZWY to double its capacity. It now supplies 250,000cu metres (90m cu metres a year) of potable water daily, in rotation to the city’s 300 sub districts. The water, drawn from the Yarmouk and Zarqa Rivers that are tributaries of the River Jordan, needs to be pumped up 1,100m to the ZWT that stands at an elevation of 900m above sea level. From there it is treated and distributed. After the ZWY visit, we crossed from Jordan into the territory of the Palestinian Authority, otherwise known as the West

Bank using what was once known as the Allenby Bridge, later renamed the King Hussein Bridge. The 120m bridge, grantfunded by JICA to the tune of US1.47 billion, was opened in March 2001. In the West Bank we drove the short distance to Jericho to see the jewel in JICA’s West Bank crown, the 13 hectare

Reem Najjar

Sami Abu Al-A'sal - hopes for honey

Jericho Agro-Industrial Park. We were to meet Sami Abu Al-A'sal of the Jericho and Al-Aghwar Co-operative for Beekeeping. The co-operative is perhaps too small to be a client of the Jericho Agri-Industrial Park, but the plan is to attract larger Palestinian agri-business companies forthis initiative. On site it is envisaged that there will be, for example, packaging companies producing glass, metal and plastic containers – and printers for labels etc, all providing elements of the Palestinian producer’s local value chain. The park itself is co-funded by JICA working with UNDP and features a 400,000kWh/year + photo voltaic array,a transformer station and monitoring tower that are being constructed by expert Japanese contractors. The power will feed-in to the Palestinian Energy Authority’s grid which will enable the Jericho Agri-Industrial Park's tenants to be provided with a reliable electricity supply There is a five-year plan, formulated in 2007, to increase renewable energy use in the West Bank by 20 per cent, reducing dependence on imported energy. Before leaving Jericho for Ramallah, we were to visit the Hisham Palace and the Tell es-Sultan historic sites and meet tourist guides who had benefited from JICA’s training projects. Once in Ramallah, we visited a Maternal Health and Child Care clinic before meeting with the Palestinian Industrial Estates and Free Zones Authority PIEFZA) director general, Mrs Reem Najjar that JICA is partnering

(along with the UNDP) to develop the JAIP. She outlined the approach the PIEFZA is taking to attract mainly Palestinian tenants to the park, and described the huge interest from the Palestinian business diaspora in the US and EU. Finally, we were to meet the Japanese diplomat Hideaki Yamamoto – known as the godfather of the Corridor of Peace and Prosperity initiative. The JAIP is an important part of Japan's Corridor for Peace and Prosperity, a project that has been a work in progress since 2006 to encourage dialogue and co-operation between Japan and all the players in the region.

Hideaki Yamamoto - vast experience

With previous posting to Sudan and Yemen, Yamamoto is clearly experienced at dealing with seemingly intractable political situations. Describing the situation in the West Bank and its occupation, he explained his philosophy as “to begin with what is achievable” and work on from there. This pragmatic approach could also describe the JICA approach to assisting the Palestinian cause and the eventual achievement of a two-state solution. ■

A look behind the cloud and its hidden costs Analysts forecast that over the next three to five years the market for cloudbased contact center solutions will grow at a rate of between 18 and 20 per cent. Compare that to the growth of premise solutions, which is in the low single digits and forecast to plateau or even diminish over the same period. It is therefore essential to be aware of what is hidden behind the cloud cover. Dave Paulding, Regional Sales Director for UK, Middle East and Africa, Interactive Intelligence explains.


HEN CLOUD COMPUTING first moved on to the IT horizon, many of the headlines focused on how this future hosting option would save businesses money. Experts and vendors alike touted the potential savings that cloud solutions could offer to companies. However, as with most things in IT, the picture became less clear the closer you got to it. In fact, as many businesses have since discovered there can potentially be a number of hidden costs to cloud computing that may lead to an overall increase in expenditure. Cloud computing certainly has far less costs than the traditional way of acquiring technology – for a start, it removes the range of expenses associated with on premise and IT communications systems. However, to reap the significant cost savings that cloud solutions can bring, businesses need to adopt a cautious

approach when choosing a provider and be clear about every upfront and ongoing cost associated with it. Choosing the right service is vital to not only save costs, but also to improve their visibility and predictability.

Cost conscious When a company signs up for a cloud computing service, the most common contracts are for a set cost per user per month, for a fixed duration. Ideally, any so-called ‘hidden costs’ that might be expected from a service should be included in this rate. Having a fixed manageable cost is a very attractive proposition for CFOs, the budget visibility makes it very easy for companies to predict their monthly IT spend and is ideal for today’s cost conscious businesses. The industry’s most successful cloud computing providers are flourishing, not only because of the benefits of their

products but because they offer a fixed financial model for organisations to take advantage of. The key is that providers still provide a known fixed price for any bespoke work. This is one of the areas where many of the cost ‘surprises’ tend to creep in - when a company wants to change its contract, whether it is moving premises or increasing or decreasing the number of users, or expanding and adding more services. It’s not about the usage costs – the hidden costs come in with any integration or development which may be required, in fact, any kind of customisation of the solution. Some providers are not clear about such costs and these could be ongoing depending on the nature of the solution. True cloud based applications should allow the user to manage and administer any changes to cut out the never-ending developing, integration and adaptation costs.

S07 TRME 4 2012 Information Technology_Layout 1 31/08/2012 14:45 Page 29



Dave Paulding

Fees One way of doing this is for vendors to limit the amount of customisations and changes to the system to keep costs down and therefore ensure that the cost passed on to the customer is lower. It makes it easier to maintain multiple customers on the same hosted platform. If they’ve all got different, unique requirements it is inevitably more complex and costly to manage. Other common hidden costs which can fall outside of the normal monthly subscription fees could range from something as simple as telephone costs, which are determined by how the system is designed and how the business connects to the solution, to data retrieval, or to something more significant like purchasing additional bandwidth to increase Internet traffic. Cloud services obviously rely on fast and reliable broadband connectivity. A slow service could have a huge impact on productivity if employees are not able to access applications as quickly as they need to. Likewise, if connectivity is lost, then work is likely to come to a standstill. Both of these scenarios have to be considered carefully when looking at the service offered by an ISP and what they charge for the bandwidth required to use the cloud. So clearly, the hidden costs that businesses need to be aware of are not just about providers offering transparent pricing, it is just as important to consider the impact the cloud service can have upon business operations. Not all clouds are the same and businesses need to examine how a service is delivered, as this can have a great impact on control, which in itself is costly. As cloud applications and their underlying architectural platforms become more robust, so too will discussions around the ‘true’ costs of the business systems that incorporate them. CIOs and C- level executives involved in the decision to migrate to the cloud need to make sure they fully understand the up front and ongoing costs involved. The fixed monthly or yearly costs may be black and white but the cost for set up, implementation and customisation is still largely a grey area for several providers. Businesses don’t need this additional financial black cloud hanging over them, every single cost should be fully documented and understood so there are no hidden surprises. ■

Regional contact centre trends THE CONTACT CENTRE industry in the region is booming and the trend is shifting from best-of-breed communications technology to an all-in-one fully integrated model. Although this has various advantages, enterprises need to be aware of important considerations when investing in technology. Outsourcing to the region’s call center agencies is on the rise driven by reduced telecom rates, increase in internet penetration and an increasing pool of educated, multi-lingual agents. For years, companies have debated the trade-offs between all-in-one communications solutions, where all the applications are available from a single vendor, vs best-of-breed or point solutions, where customers procure individual applications from various vendors integrating those applications within their environment. While recognising that there are advantages to both approaches, recently the trend in the Middle East has shifted more towards the all-inone model. Shaheen Haque, Territory Manager, Middle East & Turkey at Interactive Intelligence says that in a broader sense, 'all-in-one' refers to the range of applications required to support a specific business Shaheen Haque function.

Supercharge your supply chain SOFTWARE AG HAS announced a new blog series targeted at business-to-business (B2B) and supply chain management (SCM) professionals on its recently launched site. The new month–long series, “Supercharging Your Supply Chain,” will provide product-agnostic guidance to help businesses identify inefficiencies, eliminate issues and leverage automation to optimise their supply chain processes. Supply chain management is still evolving; new technologies and management techniques provide an opportunity for manufacturers and retailers to dramatically improve how they operate. Unfortunately, many businesses are not benefiting because they are unaware of the frequent advances occurring in the industry. Software AG created as a platform to share this information. Users can engage directly with peers and experts to learn what’s new, what’s working and what’s not. The focus of is delivering high quality and high value content via blogs, articles and the community forum — not selling products or services. “With, we want to focus on the latest trends and techniques in supply chain and highlight the processes within procure-to-pay and order-to-cash cycles that can be transformed by using B2B solutions,” said Jignesh Shah, Vice President, Business Infrastructure, Software AG. “We feel that only a very small percentage of companies use B2B solutions as a transformation tool for their supply chain processes. Those companies are already getting it right; this portal is designed to help the rest who treat B2B just as a document exchange 1mechanism.” “Although the primary focus is on supply chain trends in manufacturing and retail, we feel that certain areas are also very much applicable in healthcare, energy/utilities and finance,” he added.

Using standardisation for competitive advantage

Rockwell Automation has been the standard in water and water treatment plants for decades


HE ADVENT OF new, more stringent international regulations on emissions, energy consumption and water quality has led to a need for investment by water and water treatment companies in the Middle East. This is mainly due to the complexity of the processes used in this industry and the challenge of managing them. Rockwell Automation, a global provider of industrial automation, drive, control and information solutions, has been the standard in water and water treatment plants for decades – just one of the reasons for its wide-ranging industry expertise on a local, national and international level. The company’s customers benefit from a comprehensive portfolio of products, solutions, services and local support. Rockwell Automation also assists customers in their efforts to comply with current legal requirements. In the water and wastewater industry, Rockwell Automation’s products and solutions are used for process management. The complex mixing, filtering and purification tasks can be managed by the Compact Logix control system – a scalable, cost-effective solution for small to medium automation applications. It is also incorporated in Rockwell Automation’s Integrated Architecture platform, which provides a common process architecture

and development environment along with access to industrial networks. This type of system solution comprises programmable logic controllers (PLCs), frequency converters, I/O modules and operator consoles. It can also be integrated into the overall system using a modem connected as a remote terminal unit (RTU), even at a later date. As all the components are connected to the system via EtherNet/IP, customers have an end-to-end control solution that extends from plant level through to management level. Using the network, data can be accessed whenever needed from any part of the plant. This facilitates remote diagnostics and maintenance, as the EtherNet/IP connection allows service staff to change parameters for a component as needed – whether it is 20 metres or a kilometre away. Rockwell Automation’s control technology complies with the IEC 61131 standard. Programming ladder diagrams with Rockwell Automation will be familiar to electrical engineers, as ladder programming forms a part of this standard and looks like a circuit diagram. This is in contrast to some other PLC providers, who prefer to use high-level programming languages that require specially trained staff.

Rockwell Automation argues that due to new international regulations on emissions and water quality, companies in the Middle East will need to invest to cope with the complexity of the processes involved A system solution from Rockwell Automation – together with FactoryTalk applications – provides water and wastewater companies with multiple options for dealing with the increased demand for diagnostics and history and the documentation they require. In this area, the company works with system integrators able to develop customised applications with standard software to respond to the challenges typical in this kind of plant. This arrangement provides customers with a significant reduction of development time as well as installation, commissioning and operating costs due to the built-in industry expertise, straightforward module integration, and

BRIEFLY ■ FRANCESCO BOARO, PRESIDENT of the Aliseo group of companies, has announced the launch of two new Mekar air handling and fan coil units. On his recent visit to its regional offices in Dubai, Boaro said, “The business of both our companies, Mekar LLC and Royal Gulf LLC, has grown mainly due to the territorial expansion of the sales network in various Middle East countries. “We want to capitalise on this sales network by introducing the latest products. The 23MK series of Euroventcertified AHUs have 60mm-thick panels which make the AHU much more sturdy and strong. Also, we have introduced an ARI certified range of FCU with several advantages, the main one being extremely low noise." Arun Tuli, managing director of the Dubai offices, commented, "We have opened our own offices in Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Saudi Arabia...Our key strength remains in our flexible design, which suits all site conditions and engineers’ specifications."

SDMO strengthens global presence SDMO HAS EMBARKED on a campaign of reorganisation and redevelopment in an attempt to increase its global presence. The company recently relocated its Dubai office in order to provide responsive support and proximity to customers along with assistance for rental customers and the network of distributors located throughout the region, it said. Laurent Berthouloux, former regional director for Europe, has been tasked with heading up the new office. Another recent development for the company came in the form of Kohler Co’s acquisition of Brazilian generator company, Maquigeral, which SDMO is to run. Based in São Paulo, Maquigeral represents a great opportunity for Kohler and SDMO to strengthen their presence in the South American market, SDMO said. SDMO chief executive Jean-Marie Soula will oversee the project alongside Sandra Battistella, executive director of Kohler. The company has also unveiled its newly redesigned website, which aims to offer easy navigation, enhanced technical content, comprehensive features and maximum interactivity. The new features include context menus on the home page which enable users to easily For more information, please contact us on +9714 4465050 or by email on

Gulf producers seek ‘green’ credentials Top-quality flat glass helps reduce energy consumption in structures throughout the region. And local suppliers are paying serious attention to conservation in the floatline manufacturing process too.


IGH-PERFORMANCE ARCHITECTURAL glass is now widely available from local sources. This makes a major contribution to energy conservation within the region because of the large quantities of raw materials – bulky silicon dioxide, soda ash and lime especially as well as much reclaimed clear ‘cullet’ – which all require costly transportation. To increase these ‘Green’ credentials further Gulf producers like EFG/Emirates Float Glass (Abu Dhabi) and UFG/Arabian United Float Glass (Yanbu) are pulling out all the stops to satisfy US Green Building Council’s LEED specifications under such energy-saving categories as Requirements for New Construction and Recycled Content. This focused effort helps with the gaining of export orders by go-ahead local flat glass producers like these, especially from public-sector institutions overseas which try to demonstrate their conformity to international guidelines.

Wide range Technically a range of non-crystalline ceramic materials with varying desirable properties such as strength, nearly all glasses are produced by mixing common silica with other pure milled materials and melting the result in a heat-saving continuous furnace (refractory tank) process. A wide range of architectural properties can be ‘designed in’ by varying the mix (adding boric oxide, magnesia and alumina for clarity, for example) and adding on a series of heat-based finishing processes. These include annealing, sealing, tempering, thermal finishing and flame cutting, which can all be applied to top-spec plate glass products just as well as to everyday container glass. A key requirement is always to remove the residual stresses picked up by the material as a result of rapid cooling, which is usually uneven because of the low thermal conductivity that is typical of the common soda/lime/silica glass which makes up most of the construction-grade flat glass used by the building trade today. To achieve this the material is annealed in a continuous ‘lehr furnace’. This device allows a high degree of control of the critical cooling process by means of a computer-controlled conveyor belt system which times the material’s movement precisely. The other well known temperature-based process, tempering, is designed to increase the strength of the non-reinforced material (wire embedding being a separate process altogether). This relies on very precise control of a fast-chilling operation applied to the hot glass in its near-plastic glass state. Most of the world’s flat and automotive glass is produced by

Now widely available from local sources

All these finely-tuned processes offer many opportunities for energy conservation major producers like the global NSG Group with its well known ‘Pilkington’ brand, and Europe’s Saint-Gobain, in – or rather on – a molten tin bath. The melted glass floats on the semi-precious tin and levels itself precisely on both sides, up to a normal maximum thickness of around 20mm with perfectly parallel faces. From this continuous process it emerges as an easily sliced ribbon that is smooth and optically near perfect on both sides and throughout. It is then normally annealed (strengthened) in a lehr. If floated onto the tin in a pure nitrogen/hydrogen atmosphere the molten glass will spread out to about 6mm in section – a useful dimension for non-load bearing architectural work - and then stabilise due to surface tension. Much thinner float glass can however be created by stretching the hot glass under different conditions. For example UFG, the Saudi company cited on the previous page, specifies its current float glass availability within the 2-15mm range.

Material that is designed for high-spec applications such as mirror finishes and external panel walling can then be polished to remove all the visual distortions that may be produced with glass that is dimensionally inaccurate. This is commonly followed by further processing, such as the application of an effective and permanent self-cleaning film – a major advantage in dust-prone Gulf high rise structures.

Contemporary trend All these finely-tuned processes offer many opportunities for energy conservation, particularly by means of reducing handling and very precise control of the various heating and cooling processes, especially where the very costly tin bath is involved. In the mining process alone (mostly in the Far East these days) this is a very energy-intensive process to start with, and therefore a top target for institutions like Masdar, the USGBC and other conservation promoters. As an example of this very contemporary trend EFG earlier this year appointed a firm of international sustainability consultants to conduct a carbon-footprint survey of their modern plant in Abu Dhabi (for more details: Based on the international recognised Greenhouse Gas Protocol, this indicated a CO2 output of just 553g per kg of finished glass, “reportedly among one of the best global ratings” according to Glass International. Said GM Ghassan Mashal: “Our efforts have resulted in a significant reduction of manufacturing waste, enhanced energy conservation and mitigated harmful effects on the climate. “These outcomes demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and will help us call upon every individual and

corporate to do their share in reducing carbon footprints.” He pointed out that up to two-thirds of the float glass now produced by EFG in the emirates is sourced from suppliers within the region, right in line with the sustainability objectives of the fast-growing LEED system, with its local variants. ■

AST MONTH’S LANDING of the Mars roving vehicle ‘Curiosity’ – a colossal and continuing success as the vehicle moves across the red planet to its mountain goal at 40m per day - must be the ultimate in automation. This is a manufacturing process that began with the entirelymechanical Jacquard loom and has moved rapidly into the service and distribution sector. The automatic telephone exchange is a good half-way point. Viewed as a family today’s automated systems can be divided into two basic categories, automated manufacturing and materials handling, and automated information processing and control. The first includes CNC machine tools, assembly lines, CAD/CAM and warehouse storage retrieval systems etc. The second covers data processing, transport and accommodations reservations systems and many others, including of course that latest stunning NASA achievement.

Advantages The reasons for designing and installing any automation system should always be positive ones, rather than displacing existing manual labour. These could include: increasing factory productivity, measured in terms of tasks successfully completed in a unit of time; creating products and their varieties in a more efficient way, in terms of use of raw materials (apparel cutting-out

There are numerous advntages to installing an automation system

Going beyond mechanisation Automation is everywhere in manufacturing and distribution these days. Applied properly it can actually increase employment opportunities, a critical requirement in North Africa and the Gulf. in Dubai’s Textile City is a classic example); improving both the quality and consistency of an operation to improve the supplier/customer relationship; making all manufacturing and/or materials-handling operations safer; increasing the flexibility of a manufacturing operation (today’s contract manufacturing as practiced in Morocco and China being a very good example); and reducing overall set-up and running costs of course. So the many advantages of putting in an automation system can be summed up as increased and consistent throughout, improved perceived quality, and enhanced flexibility of operations, a win-win situation. These benefits are achieved in any modern manufacturing plant by reducing cycle times, ensuring enhanced and guaranteed precision, reducing employee exposure to risk and/or monotony and fatigue, gaining economies of scale, using available time more efficiently, and generally motivating the workforce (and making possible larger wage packets at the same time).

All this may be achieved at the expense of displacing workers who are already employed (often less flexible older ones) or sometimes increasing the young unemployed, not always being able to anticipate the unexpected in the form of a line stoppage, and high initial R&D, acquisition, training and application costs.

Limits This means there are limits to automation as it is currently applied, to manufacturing and materials handling operations in particular. This is because new products are being devised all the time and it is not feasible to automate all the tasks associated with their initial small-scale manufacture, which may not be continued anyway. And as the process and business grows and matures the perceived benefits of automation often shrink under the well known Law of Diminishing Returns, sometimes leading to awkward questions being asked in the boardroom. Nevertheless no-one builds a manufacturing plant anywhere in North Africa (the home of very successful rent-a-factory operations in the clothing trade) or the Gulf (now producing and exporting most consumer products as well as a wide range of

Wacker now certified by Dubai Labs

IREEE ‘committed to high standards’

WACKER CHEMICALS MIDDLE East has been awarded the ISO/IEC certificate by the certification body DAC Dubai Municipality Accreditation Center. The ISO 17025 Quality Management standard certifies the competence of test and calibration labs internationally. Labs that have undergone certification can thus show that they have a modern management system and possess both the technical and specialist competence enabling them to provide well-founded analyses and results. Certification was carried out by three experts – Prabhakar Golkonda (Principal Accreditation Officer, DAC Dubai Municipality), Dr. John Pitts (a freelance assessor from the UK) and Christinah Leballo (from the South African National Accreditation System). The external team visited WACKER’s premises in Dubai on June 17, with a focus on the Technical Center. Apart from working procedures and processes, the technical equipment was also assessed. Mohammed Sanaobar, head of the Dubai Technical Center, ordered the setting up of a test environment specifically for the test day. The visit was jointly organized by Abbas Kanisan and Idress Khan. Certification according to ISO 17025 is, for example, a prerequisite for establishing long-lasting business relations with Dubai Municipality. “The ISO 17025 certificate attests to the high standard of quality to which which our laboratories in Dubai work,” said Cyril Cisinski, managing director of Wacker Chemicals Middle East. The internationally recognised quality verification according to ISO 17025 reinforces the credibility of the company and thus leads to greater customer satisfaction, he added.

IRAN ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT Engineering (IREEE) has claimed it is “committed to the highest standards” and abides by the principle that the ‘employer is always right’. IREEE, established in 1991, has executed numerous power transmission projects up to 400V under EPC and turnkey contracts. The company said that it will design, engineer, manufacture, test, supply, install and commission whatever its employer wishes. No matter the size or location of the project, IREEE will accept the challenge, it added.

Re-certification is scheduled for end 2013.

SSAB expands Hardox range SSAB HAS NOW expanded its range of Hardox wear plate to cover thicknesses from 0.7mm to 130mm. This provides more industries with access to Hardox and means new opportunities for existing customers to develop their products. Where the thickness previously set limits for design solutions, the new extensive Hardox product programme opens new doors. Hardox is a wear-resistant steel with very consistent features that makes it easy to process. It is not only hard, for resisting wear, but also has excellent design characteristics in terms of toughness and formability. In addition, the new thinner version provides even better thickness tolerances and surfaces than classic Hardox. “The production equipment we have invested in makes it possible to give very thin, as well as very thick steel the unique properties of Hardox”, said Johan Broback who is co-ordinating SSAB´s launch of the new product range. He pointed out that it is the result of close co-operation with customers, as well as an exchange of knowledge within the company.

Growth for some, disappointment for others


AST YEAR SAW significant changes in the fortunes of both the MENA markets. For some there was exceptional growth, but for others disappointment largely brought about by the effects of the ‘Arab Spring’. Whereas the Middle East experienced a dramatic increase in demand of over one third to 10,360 MWe, North Africa declined by over twenty per cent to 1,500 MWe. Despite this, the entire region saw transactions amounting to US$1.9 billion, slightly over a third more than in 2010. In 2011 the entire region accounted for 14 per cent of global demand, marginally more than the previous year - 112,300 generating sets were consumed having an aggregate generating capacity of 11,860 MWe. When sets below 7.5 kVA

are excluded the total consumption of units is halved to 55,960 (11,635 MWe); 12.5 per cent of global demand valued at US$1.4 billion.

Middle East consumption increased by 18,000 units to 98,200 in 2011, the aggregate generating capacity rose by 37 per cent to 10,360 MWe. This was in sharp contrast to North Africa where demand fell by 1,800 generating sets to just over 14,000, and aggregate generating capacity fell by 22 per cent to 1,500 MWe. Fig.2 identifies the demand by power bands for MENA in 2011. Despite two successive years of falling demand in North Africa to a level last seen in 2007, overall growth for the

whole region, i.e. including the Middle East, has averaged 10.2 per cent per annum for the past five years. This is considerably higher than the global average of 4.5 per cent which has been depressed in more recent years by the lower levels of demand in Europe and North America. With limited production facilities in the region, apart from those in the Lebanon, demand is largely met by imports from Europe, Asia and North America. Lebanon has grown in

importance as a supplier to both the Middle East and Africa in recent years. In 2011 it secured a 10 per cent share of the African market and for the first time became the fourth largest supplier to that continent after the UK, China and France. Middle East imports increased significantly in 2011 following the progressive decline since their peak in 2008 (Fig.3). A total of 96,500 generating sets having an aggregate generating capacity of 10,150MWe were imported, the highest level ever recorded: almost seven per cent more than the peak of 2008. In terms of aggregate output 70 per cent of these had ratings in excess of 375 kVA. The same could not be said of North Africa where imports declined to their lowest level in four years. A total of 12,260 sets were imported having an aggregate generating capacity of 1,380 MWe. Figs.4a and 4b define the Middle East and North African imports by power band. With a 26 per cent increase in imports in 2011 the underlying compound annual growth rate of imports for the past five years has averaged 12.5 per cent, some seven per cent higher than the global average. The Far East is the world’s largest importer, consuming 30 per cent of all exports, followed by Europe with 23 per cent and the Middle East and North Africa with 21 per cent. Whilst the percentage of imports into the Middle East and North Africa increased from 17 per cent in 2010 to 21 per cent in 2011, 56,000 of the total of 108,750 were of an output less than 7.5 kVA. By contrast generating sets above 750 kVA accounted for half of the aggregate generating capacity. Although the UK remains the largest exporter to the region, its share of the market has diminished somewhat in recent years. In 2011 it secured a third of all exports to the Middle East and North Africa. Over 20,000 units with a generating capacity of 3,875 MWe were shipped to the region, 8,500 of these in the range 7.5/75 kVA and 10,300 between 75 and 750 kVA. The UK is strongest in the Middle East where it holds a 36 per cent market share compared with 28 per cent in North Africa. The USA was the next largest supplier with a 13 per cent share; marginally lower than the previous year. Whilst strong in the countries of the Middle East, sales to North Africa were

In 2011 the Lebanon emerged as the third largest supplier to the region with a 12 per cent market share. Previously the sixth largest supplier with less than a five per cent share, almost 8,500 units were despatched to the region in 2011 having a generating capacity of 1,360 MWe. Of these 7,900 were of ratings between 1- 750 kVA, but sales to North Africa were minimal. Despite increasing its sales to the Middle East and North Africa from 41,000 units in 2010 to 56,500 by the end of 2011 China slipped from third to fourth place with an aggregate generating capacity of 1,270 MWe and overall market share of 11 per cent. Of the sets supplied 53,000 had ratings of less than 75 kVA. Although Turkey’s trade with the region increased in 2011 it did not sustain its place as the fourth largest supplier. With a share of only five per cent it exported 3,950 units having an

aggregate generating capacity of 600 MWe. Other exporters of significance were Italy, France and Germany, though France’s declining share of the market in the Middle East was particularly noticeable. The top five exporters to the region claimed a 75 per cent share of the market (Fig.5). In 2011 the five major consuming countries in the Middle East and North Africa were the United Arab Emirates,


Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt and Kuwait. These five countries accounted for 72 per cent of regional demand. Whilst in recent years the UAE and Saudi Arabia have been the two dominant markets, in 2011 the Iraq market grew by almost two and a half times its 2010 level to become the third largest in the region (Figs6 & 7). Electricity consumption in both the Middle East and North Africa has grown at a compound annual rate of 6.4 per

cent in recent years to approximately one billion megawatt hours in 2011; a rate higher than the annual increase in installed generating capacity. By comparison the demand for diesel generating plant has, on average, grown at almost twice this rate. North Africa: Three North African markets, Egypt, Libya and Tunisia were affected by the popular uprisings in 2011 which caused a disruption of economic

activity affecting both domestic production and imports. In Egypt, the most populous country with 83mn people and the third largest generating set market in Africa, the effect was not as dramatic as might have been expected. Demand fell by only 25 per cent having recovered substantially in 2010 from the set-back in 2009. Egypt: In 2011 the Egyptian economy grew at only 1.2 per cent, considerably

less than in 2010. Foreign investment also stalled as investors in future energy and construction projects waited to see how the political and economic climates might develop. A total of 4,900 generating sets were consumed having a generating capacity of 675 MWe and a value of US$ 110mn. Whilst 4,200 of these were of outputs less than 375 kVA, larger sets accounted for 70 per cent of the aggregate generating capacity. Although Egypt has a large domestic consumer market its foreign currency reserves have been badly affected. The generating set market, therefore, is unlikely to show any significant movement in 2012 as economic growth remains sluggish; this despite a compound annual growth rate of 14 per cent for the last five years. Libya: In 2011 consumption more than halved from the previous year. Three thousand units were sold having an aggregate generating capacity of 60 MWe. The most noticeable decline was for plant above 375 kVA, consumption having fallen from 330 units in 2009 to 20 last year. At US$12mn the market was well below its potential. The economy depends primarily upon oil revenues which represent 95 per cent of export earnings and 65 per cent of GDP, the country holding the largest proven oil reserves in the African continent. In the service and construction industries, which expanded rapidly in the years before the uprising, both construction and oil companies are now competing with each other in a race to secure contracts to rebuild the economy. With a GDP growth in excess of 10 per cent in 2010, a population of 6.6mn and potential electricity consumption of 24 billion kilowatt hours per year the generating set market should, in due course, be able to regain its historic growth rate of at least 15 per cent annually and achieve sales of US$60mn. Algeria: is the largest generating set market in North Africa despite its economy being dominated by the state. It is the world’s fourth-largest exporter of natural gas and has the world’s eighthlargest natural gas and 16th-largest oil reserves. Natural gas is the prime source of Algeria's electricity generation which reached a production of 45,200 GWh in 2010. Whilst dependant on the hydrocarbon sector, which accounts for 60 per cent of the country’s revenues and some 30 per cent of GDP, it also represents 95 per cent of Algeria’s

exports by value. With an underlying annual growth rate of 9.5 per cent the market consumed 5,250 generating sets in 2011 having an aggregate output of 560 MWe and a

market value of US$93mn. The most popular demand was for gensets above 375 kVA which represented 65 per cent of the aggregate generating capacity. Middle East: The UAE, Saudi Arabia


and Iraq now dominate the Middle East market. Between them these countries consumed a total of 67,000 generating sets having an aggregate generating capacity of 7,300 MWe and a combined

value of US$1.2 billion in 2011. United Arab Emirates: Last year the economy grew by 4.2 per cent, but will probably grow at the somewhat lower rate of three per cent this year as oil prices have fallen. This is slightly below the IMF’s expectation. However, improved oil prices, including expansion in the non-oil sector contributed to the rise in GDP over the previous year. Oil sector revenues account for over 30 per cent and the UAE is one of the world’s top five oil exporters. Despite sanctions on neighbouring Iran concerning its nuclear programme hurting UAE re-exports, the prospect for increased sales of generating plant remain high. In 2011 the volume of generating sets sold increased by 5,400 units to 33,175, but almost 60 per cent of these were below 7.5 kVA. The most significant area of growth was for generating plant above 750 kVA. These represented 50 per cent of the aggregate generating capacity of 2,950 MWe, and within this segment the demand for plant with ratings in the range

2-3,000 kVA doubled in size to almost 250 units. The market was valued at US$350mn. The consumption of electricity in the Emirates has grown at a yearly rate of 10 per cent in recent years and is now in the order of 95 billion kilowatt hours annually.Saudi Arabia: With over one fifth of the world’s proven petroleum reserves, a sector which accounts for roughly 80 per cent of revenues, 45 per cent of GDP and 90 per cent of export earnings, Saudi Arabia is the regions second largest generating set market. In 2011 the market consumed over 13,000 gensets having an aggregate capacity of 2,670 MWe valued at US$395mn. Particularly noticeable was an increase in the demand for sets between 750 & 2,000 kVA of 1,375 units, almost double the previous year. Over the past five years generating set demand has grown at a rate of almost 20 per cent annually; three times that of the growth of electricity consumption. Saudi Arabia’s electricity consumption is the highest in the Middle East - two and

a half times that of the United Arab Emirates, the region’s largest generating set market. The future prospects for growth remain bright. The IMF estimated the kingdom’s real GDP growth at 7.1 per cent in 2011 and predicts a growth rate of six per cent this year, though not all economic forecasts are quite as optimistic. Iraq: Whilst the Iraq war of March 2003 had a devastating effect on the market for generating sets, the annual growth rate since 2006 has been exceptionally high. 2011 saw the biggest leap in consumption yet, especially for generating sets of 2,000 kVA and above. The aggregate output of these alone was 850 MWe, fifty per cent of the total. An improving security environment and an influx of foreign investment are helping to spur economic activity, particularly in the energy and construction sectors. As global oil prices remained high for much of 2011, government revenues also increased. According to OPEC total oil production is now just under three million bpd and new pipelines to the Gulf will further improve Iraq’s prominence as a major oil exporter. In 2011 a total of 20,500 generating sets having an aggregate generating capacity of 1,700 MWe valued at US$160mn were consumed. With electricity consumption now growing rapidly the future market for generating plant is promising. Kuwait: Whilst petroleum accounts for nearly half of GDP and 95 per cent of export revenues, Kuwait has done little to diversify its economy. However, in 2010 the government passed a privatisation bill that allows it to sell assets to private investors. Coupled with a five year investment programme it is planned to diversify the economy away from oil and attract more private sector investment which may in due course increase the potential for generating plant. The consumption of electricity has been growing at a rate of only five per cent annually and the demand for generating equipment has centred mostly on the range 75 – 2,000 kVA. However, in 2011 this fell from 6,800 units in 2010 to 2,900 last year having an aggregate generating capacity of 520 MWe and valued at US$160mn. Lebanon: The Lebanese economy had experienced rapid growth until 2011, when it faltered in the first half of the year following the collapse of the government and the effects of the uprising in neighbouring Syria. After several years of GDP growth of around eight per cent

Genset Review per annum it probably dropped to a level of 1.5 to two per cent in 2011, though government sources have tried to talk this up. This year it is expected to be around 3 per cent. Despite this Lebanon has remained an important supplier of generating plant to Middle Eastern markets, exporting some 8,500 generating sets in 2011. Its domestic market, however, declined substantially from 16,000 sets in 2010 to 8,000 last year valued at US$85mn. These had a generating capacity of 490 MWe, almost a third lower than the previous year. Iran: Despite its potential Iran remains a relatively small generating set market. In 2011 it consumed only 4,400 generating sets valued at US$97mn. Whilst demand was mostly for sets below 375 kVA those above 750 kVA represented 50 per cent of the aggregate generating capacity. Iran has the third highest consumption of electricity in the Middle East and North Africa, which at 200 billion kilowatt hours per annum has been growing at an annual rate of 6.5 per cent. The generating set market has undoubtedly been affected by US sanctions targeting banks globally that process payments for Iranian oil, and EU restrictions on insurers providing cover for tankers carrying Iran’s crude oil. Even so, China’s imports of crude oil from Iran rose to their highest level in 2011 and China, together with Italy and Turkey, were the dominant suppliers of generating plant to the Iranian market. World Summary: In 2011 global consumption reached 84,050 MWe, the highest ever recorded. This was 6.5 per cent higher than the previous year. Whilst only half the growth rate of 2010 it reflects the continual improvement in market conditions since 2009. The compound

annual growth rate for the five years since 2006, which includes the slump of 2009, has been 4.5 per cent compared with eight per cent for the past decade. In 2011 a total of 1.21 billion generating sets valued at US$15.9 billion were sold; 86,000 more than in 2010. The Far East is the world’s largest and fastest growing regional market, a position

Lebanon has remained an important supplier of generating plant to Middle Eastern markets it has retained for the last decade. With a compound annual growth rate of 8.5 per centr since 2006, at 32,525 MWe it is twice as large as the European market and nearly twice the size of the North, Central and South American markets. By comparison the European and North American markets have shown virtually no growth in recent years. South America, by contrast, has grown at a rate of 22 per cent per annum since 2006 whilst Africa and the Middle East have been expanding at the lesser rates of 8.5 and 9.7 per cent respectively (Fig.8). Of the total of 1.21mn generating sets consumed by the world’s markets in 2011 fifty per cent were of an output of less than 7.5 kVA, but in aggregate represented only three per cent of the generating capacity (Fig.9). The 75 to 375 kVA range of generating plant has for the past decade been the centre of gravity of world demand and 165,000 units were sold in 2011. During some years in the past decade the generating capacity of these units has been as high as a third of total


consumption, but in more recent times has averaged 29 per cent. In 2011 the demand for gensets with ratings of 750 kVA and above was in excess of 30,000 units. The total value of the global market in 2011 was US$15.9 billion. The Far East was by far the largest region at US$6.8 billion; more than twice that of the European market at US$2.8 billion (Fig.10). Exports represent a high proportion of the world trade in generating sets. In 2011 a total of 583,000 sets were exported having an aggregate generating capacity of 54,100 MWe i.e. 64 per cent of total consumption and a value of US$9.5 billion. Apart from China, Japan and India the major manufacturers are mostly located in the Western hemisphere; of which the UK had a 24 per cent share, China 18 per cent (three quarters of which was in the range 75-2,000 kVA) and the USA 14 per cent. In reviewing the demand for both diesel and gas engine driven generating equipment in the Middle East and North Africa in 2011, consumption, exports and imports have been measured in aggregate MWe rather than in numbers of units, as this is a real measure of capacity unaffected by the predominant volume of small generating sets below 7.5 kVA, the continuing movement in exchange rates, and the differentials in price between western and eastern hemisphere producers. ■

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Four 2012



HE NATIONAL TRANSITIONAL Council (NTC) currently carries out the function of Libya’s caretaker government. The NTC was established by constitutional declaration (the Declaration) in August 2011 and will remain the interim authority in Libya until the election of a 200-member National General Council. Once the National General Council is elected, a new constitution will be drafted and put to referendum towards the end of 2012. The new constitution will build upon the spirit of the Declaration. A key objective of the Declaration is to diversify the economy, which has for a long time been almost entirely dependent on oil revenue. Another objective is promoting the private sector, including the introduction of transparent processes for privatisation.Time will tell how well these objectives are met. Any major legislative and regulatory reforms will not occur immediately. The new central Government has many priorities in what is a complex web of semi-autonomous regions seeking federalism, factions and diverse tribal and ethnic groups. The reality will involve the establishment from scratch of a parliament, the government and its ministries, not to mention the associated committees and bodies that are a necessary part of the machinery of government.Evidence from other regions suggests that it will be a slow process with mistakes along the way.

The new government will bring with it a fresh roadmap for reform

Libya’s reconstruction work still to be done The international contracting community is keenly aware of the opportunities which Libya represents, but they will need to be well positioned to grasp the opportunities that will eventually materialise. That means starting the process now. A new government will bring with it a fresh roadmap for reform. There is much to do before there is any structure around how the Government intends to allocate the vast construction and infrastructure budgets at its disposal, and how it will tender and ultimately engage foreign contractors. For this reason we are cautious about short terms prospects, it is unlikely that there will be any major project for at least the next year or two. Construction and Infrastructure Projects Before the Arab Spring and the upheaval there, Libya had advertised to the world that it would be spending US$500bn on projects by 2020, including US$15bn on infrastructure projects by 2013. There is no reason to believe the scope of intended investment will be diminished. The time frames will simply be moved.However the new Government may also look at what had been prioritised previously and it is likely that some re ordering of what is considered critical will occur. Virtually all sectors of Libya’s economy require massive investment and improvement. Some of the obvious sectors are airports, ports, railways, roads, housing, healthcare and the

revitalisation of power and water facilities. Although the Great Man-Made River Project represents a great achievement in Libya for supplying water to some parts of Libya, there remain huge water shortage issues, let alone wastewater systems that are urgently needed. Add to this the project market associated with a major push for a tourism sector and we are looking at a very significant project market for many years to come. Healthcare is close to the top of the list, as it is in many Arab countries. The NTC has been studying public private partnership models, with a view to procuring the delivery of at least seven new hospitals using a PPP model. The NTC has also earmarked the refurbishment of many hospitals as a prerogative once the new Government is in place. Despite the wealth generated by Libya’s oil reserves, there are strong signs that the new Libya will favour the procurement of many healthcare projects off balance sheet, utilising the expertise of expert consortia. This will present big opportunities for foreign contractors. It is not yet clear whether PPP models are being considered for other sectors, but it is certainly likely, given that such models continue to be closely considered by Libya’s neighbours and GCC countries across a range of projects. The World Bank announced in September 2011 that it would be helping the NTC plan and tender for contracts for reconstruction. The anecdotal evidence is that to date not much has been done in this regard. A wait and see approach until the new Government takes over is now more likely. There are obvious constraints on the NTC’s legitimate authority to award contracts. So far, outside the oil and gas sector at least, only local contractors have been actively repairing and rebuilding.

Technical Review Middle East - Issue Four 2012


Contractors are keenly aware of the opportunities that are available in Libya

Foreign involvement is a medium- to long-term proposition. In the short term, the focus will be on establishing the level of public governance required to enable the scale of investment that is planned. A foreign contractor must establish a local entity to work in Libya. This should be looked at now, as there is a huge administrative backlog and red tape to navigate. It is possible to set up a branch office of a foreign company in Libya without involving a Libyan partner. However, there is considerable complexity in any set-up and experienced advisers need to play a very active role. It is unclear if these processes will change with the new Government. The legal system in Libya is based upon a Civil Code and Islamic Law (the Shari’a). The Civil Code is based upon the Egyptian Civil Code and is broadly similar in content and effect to other Civil Codes in the GCC, such as the UAE Civil Code. Many foreign contractors will be familiar with certain aspects of the application of Civil Code concepts in the context of undertaking projects in the GCC. For example, good faith, decennial liability and Article 249 (‘change of circumstances’) are principles well known to contractors doing business in the UAE. Expect the same principles to apply in Libya. The Shari‘a may be reasserted in Libya’s new legal landscape. The leader of the NTC has been vocal about the fact that the Shari‘a will be the primary source of law in the reformation of Libya and that any laws contradicting the Shari‘a will be void. An example of such a system is in Saudi Arabia. We would not be surprised, however, to see the status quo maintained of a Codebased system alongside the Shari‘a. So what are some of the key things a party needs to be aware of when entering into a contract in Libya? Where a contract is entered into with a public sector entity, such contract will be subject to the Administrative Contracts Regulation no. 563 of 2007 (the Regulation). There are tender rules and other special rules for state contracts. The Regulation provides that all disputes under such contracts must be referred to the Libyan courts. A submission to arbitration requires the

approval of the General People’s Committee. It is expected that these rules will be in place for some time. The language of a contract should be in English so that the storm of correspondence generated by a construction project can be quickly understood. If the language of the contract is stated to be Arabic, a contractor will need a very good translator, who will become a critical adviser. Translating Arab into English has many traps for the uninitiated. Force majeure provisions will obviously be important. The Regulation and the Libyan Civil Code both deal with force majeure, and these provisions may form part of a wider interpretation of an FM provision expressed in a contract. The Civil Code imposes different standards from the common law in the context of the principles of a bargain between parties. A bargain may not always be a bargain. It may be difficult to negotiate around the requirement for submission of disputes to the local courts where contracting with the public sector. Where contracting with a private party, it would be preferable for the contract to provide for an agreement to arbitrate, with the place of such arbitration being an internationally recognised location, such as London, Paris or Geneva. Libya is not subject to the New York Convention, which means that all foreign arbitration awards sought to be enforced in Libya have to be approved by the Courts in Libya. Assume appeals, appeals and more appeals.

Before the Arab Spring and the upheaval there, Libya had advertised to the world that it would be spending US$500bn on projects by 2020 Our long experience in the Middle East and North Africa means that we are well placed to assist in unravelling the problems with existing contracts. That is certainly the problem currently facing many foreign contractors in Libya. In virtually all cases, getting things right at the start can avoid many problems later on. This will be particularly important going into the new Libya. Foreign contractors need to form strong relationships in Libya. They need to be doing this now. As is true with many other parts of the Arab world, forging strong relationships with local contacts is of paramount importance. Those contractors that show commitment and a genuine interest in the future of Libya will be “front and centre” when the tenders and contracts eventually start coming. Trust will be key. Especially in a society as small as Libya. Establishing such trust in a fractured Libya will take time, but offers huge rewards for the committed. Libya’s oil wealth underpins the relative optimism for the future growth in construction and infrastructure. While in time there will be many opportunities, foreign contractors will need to have an established presence in the local market and be alive to the risks and traps for the unwary of not only a system of law that relies predominantly on civil law concepts and the Shari‘a, but also a fluid, evolving commercial environment in an Arab nation that is in the primary phase of undoing 40 years of dictatorship.The challenges are immense. So are the possible rewards.

Aerial Work Platforms An invaluable aid on a construction site

Is all well with your AWP? Powered access is an invaluable aid to construction site efficiency, and to maintenance teams too. But plant operators must always know they are working within safe limits, especially when that handy boom is extended horizontally.


HE NORTH AMERICAN subsidiary of the International Powered Access Federation has been warning contractors to ensure adequate ground support is always available whenever an aerial work platform such as a powered boom lift is in use. “With mobile equipment, the ground surface it rests upon is critical to its strength and stability,” says Tony Groat of AWP Training. He is quoted in the 2011 edition of IPAF Elevating Safety. Groat points out that today’s AWPs are versatile, well designed and extremely useful, capable of lifting personnel, their tools and even a few lightweight materials too to a suitable safe height for working on a building, embankment or other structure. Some models even offer convenient horizontal reach as well. But the nature of the ground surface they are required to move over and then rest on is very important to ensure both strength and stability. This should always be checked before the AWP is shifted on to the site and then put to use, to ensure no tip-over accident can possibly take place. Operators must know how much the loaded platform actually weighs; rough assumptions must never be relied upon as they are regularly found to be too low. The weight of the machine itself is spelled out on a specifications plate rigidly attached, and also recorded somewhere in the operating manual. This figure should always be taken into account as the operator must be confident that the ground under each and every wheel or outrigger – normally there are at least four – can support its portion of the total load that is going to be lifted to height. Frequently the ground conditions vary from one point of contact to another, and also along the access route. So does the distribution of the total load as the machine’s configuration changes,

Not only must the nature of the material be considered – whether it is sand or unconsolidated backfill, for example - but also its condition. There is a significant difference in bearing capacity between dry and wet materials, and non-homogeneous ones, for example. Compacted material can obviously bear more, but is the operator sure this has been done uniformly and adequately?

Operators must know how much the loaded platform actually weighs Special care needs to be taken with manmade surfaces such as blacktop and the sealed concrete pavement in a parking lot. This is particularly important if – as so often - there are any underground services such as pipes, cable runs and culverts installed; these normally incorporate metal-lidded access points which may have been mistakenly covered with asphalt, and are therefore not visible to the operator. Use of the platform on such a surface should always be signed off by a competent person before the machine is even moved onto the site. The distribution of the weight between the four ground contact points is not necessarily equal under the best of conditions, and if the boom is extended this becomes a complicated calculation problem which experience alone is best suited to solving. The assessment becomes even more difficult if the ground on which the platform is being used is unconsolidated, uneven, not level or inconsistent in some other way. As the mechanical lift is operated the load registered by each tyre changes significantly, especially if and when the boom is extended horizontally. If it is going to tip no warning will be given, and both serious injury and physical damage can be the results. Experienced operators and site managers know how a progressive change in machine configuration can alter the stability of the loaded aerial work platform; others should never rest on their own estimated judgement alone. For helpful advice on this and related in-use issues with AWPs the IPAF is an invaluable source of help to owners and contractors everywhere; visit

BRIEFLY ■ AECOM TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION has been awarded a US$85mn construction management contract for the new Midfield Terminal Complex at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Under the terms of the five-year contract, AECOM will take responsibility for many aspects of the construction of the 7.5mn sq ft Midfield Terminal Building as well as the required associated airside and landside infrastructure. “We are very pleased to have been selected by Abu Dhabi Airports Company to participate in this prestigious project, which is a significant investment in the Emirate’s growth,” said AECOM chairman and chief executive officer John Dionisio. AECOM will carry out the work in association with Hill Internationalas the prime sub-consultant. The Midfield terminal building is set to open during 2017. It will be able to handle more than 30 million passengers.

Middle East cement sector revenues rise CEMENT COMPANIES IN the Middle East witnessed a 24.3 per cent increase in revenue to US$1.26bn in the first quarter of 2012 as construction activity in certain parts of the region increased, according to a Global Investment House report. The industry's profits rose to US$435.6mn in Q1 compared to US$359.5mn for the same period in 2011, representing growth of 21.2 per cent. According to the report, however, net margins suffered a fall during the period.

Demand for cement in the region is increasing

The UAE and Oman reported higher revenues due to the better operating environments in both countries. Sales revenue of UAE firms increased by 7.7 per cent to US$258mn, bringing gross margin back to double digits at 10.5 per cent. Chairman of Danube Building Materials, Rizwan Sajan said that the UAE construction industry had started to pick up. "The second quarter of this year was much better than the first quarter on positive signs in the UAE," he said. Saudi Arabia achieved strong growth of 34.7 per cent in revenue, outperforming the UAE, Qatar and Oman. This big jump is the result of the huge development plans taking place within the Kingdom that has seen demand for cement rise significantly. It is predicted that Saudi Arabia's cement demand will strengthen in 2013. Omani companies witnessed a 16.7 per cent increase in revenue to US$100.3mn.

Saudi Arabia to drive construction spending in the MENA region A REPORT BY BofA Merrill Lynch has stated that Saudi Arabia will take a leading role in the regional infrastructure and construction spending over the next 15 years. Forecasting figures predict a total of US$4.3 trillion will be invested in construction projects across the MENA region by 2020, representing an increase of almost 80 per cent from today's spend.

Saudi is spending heavily on infrastructure projects

The wider MENA region's infrastructure and construction market is among the world's most attractive given its sheer size and will continue to grow as a result of the implementation of structural reforms aimed at raising productivity of the non-oil sector, according to the report. Philip Southwell, Bank of America Merrill Lynch president and country executive,

Middle East and North Africa, said, "Due to many years of underinvestment, we expect Saudi Arabia to take the lead in terms of construction spending in the MENA region as the kingdom responds positively to pressing social needs such as labour, housing and education." The report noted that the region is expected to account for 12 per cent of the global emerging markets and 4.4 per cent of the world construction markets within the next decade with Saudi Arabia expected to continue leading the way. The first five months of 2012 has seen a decline by 41 per cent in MENA contract awards compared to the same period last year, the main reasons for this decline can be primarily attributed to delays in awarding projects in Egypt and delays in awarding construction and infrastructure contracts in the UAE, Kuwait and Iraq, stated the report. "The construction and infrastructure subsectors in Saudi Arabia, however, remain strong, growing by 177 per cent over the same period, and currently accounting for 46% of the 2012-2013 MENA project pipeline totalling $448bn," said Mutashar Murshed, Merrill Lynch Saudi Arabia CEO.
