Powerscreen is fuelling efficiency and productivity for its customers in Oman. Prior to Powerscreen entering the Oman market, the market was dominated by static equipment, but meanwhile there has been an increased acceptance of mobile crushing and screening equipment by quarry operators. Rapidly rising costs encourages them to outsource the quarry operation to contractors who own crushing units. This has led to a change in market dynamics and the expansion of the mobile crushing and screening market.
General Engineering Services Est, the Powerscreen dealer in Oman, entered the market with mobile crushing and screening plants (Fig.) and sold more than 45 crushers and screens in four years. Sami Saeed Al Bahr Al Rawas, quarry owner from Nasr Arabia, previously purchased static plants until being introduced to the concept of mobile crushing and screening plants by the sales team at General Engineering Services Est. Nasr Arabia now own four Powerscreen mobile crushers and screens, a Pegson 1412 Trakpactor, a Pegson XR400, a H6203R and a Warrior 1800. Sami Saeed ordered a combination of a Pegson XR400 and a Warrior 1800 screen for a construction and highway contract as well as a Pegson XH500 and Chieftain 2100X. According to Sami Saeed, „being mobile, compact and remotely operated enables the tracked units to operate close to my quarry site, thereby reducing the use of large conveyors belts, in turn balancing the operating and maintenance costs.”
