Emirates Thermostone commences construction on second AAC production line
Emirates Thermostone, a subsidiary of M’Sharie, the private equity arm of Dubai Investments, has recently commenced construction on a second production line that will enable the company to double its current annual production capacity of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) construction materials. The expansion will see the company produce more than 500,000 cubic metres annually to developers who are impressed by the structural and ergonomic benefits of the technology.
Civil and electro-mechanical work has already commenced on the second production line, which will feature machinery that has been sourced from machinery suppliers in Germany, the Netherlands and China on completion.
“Our second production line is well under way and we have made significant investments in our new machinery which has higher accuracy and lower wastage than typical models. Our technology is very popular with the construction industry and we are working hard and considering all available options to make sure that our supply matches the demand,” said Ali Abdul Karim, General Manager, Thermostone.
Emirates Thermostone operates one of the largest and most technologically advanced AAC production plants in the Middle East, however its annual production of 250,000 metres cubed was not enough to satisfy the market demand for the AAC construction materials. The company has recently signed major contracts with some of the region’s leading property developers who are impressed with the structural and ergonomic benefits of the recently introduced AAC technology.
The company operates in technical collaboration with some leading European companies renowned for their expertise in the production of AAC materials, targeting residential, industrial and commercial developments throughout the GCC states.
“Thermostone’s products are naturally resistant to fire, termites and fungal delay and are completely recyclable, making them popular with modern developers. Many more residents are also requesting that they live in a development that has been constructed with AAC stone as the material does not release pollutants or toxic substances that could affect the indoor air quality, even in a fire,” Karim concluded.
