EEIC wins Fadhili Gas Plant contract

Electronic and Electrical Industries Corporation (EEIC), a power and automation solutions provider and a subsidiary of Abunayyan Holding, has won a contract to provide Fadhili Gas Plant (FGP) with low-voltage switchgear, low-voltage motor control centers as well as customized pre-fabricated substations (e-houses).
A specialist in providing these prefabricated buildings, EEIC has a long history of providing these structures to similar projects such as the Uthmaniyah project.
In line with the Vision 2030, EEIC seeks to not only further expand its reach but also to maintain its competitive edge by working alongside global technology providers and companies such as Tecnicas Reunidas (TR) with whom it shares a long and successful partnership.
Mohamed Tayel, commercial operations director of EEIC said: “Fadhili Gas Plant is one of many megaprojects that EEIC has worked on alongside Tecnicas Reunidas. We have a long history of working with them and are looking forward to doing so once again. It is also a great time for Saudi companies like us to come forward and take advantage of the encouragement and push given by the government. We have skilled workers, factories on a par with international standards and can, therefore, deliver excellent results locally.”
The FGP, located approximately 30 km southwest of Khursaniyah Gas Plant, has a total capacity of 2,500 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) and presents a dynamic opportunity for further developing and utilizing the Kingdom’s gas reserves.
Being associated with a megaproject of this nature is a great prospect for its main contractor, TR that was awarded the project by Saudi Aramco as well as for local companies like EEIC brought on board to provide the electrical scope for the FGP.

Splash breathes new life into old garments

Splash, UAE’s largest fast-fashion retailer, has launched the “Life After Fashion” initiative. 

The campaign aims at progressing the brand’s sustainable practices by giving back to the less fortunate. 

The initiative involves a close collaboration with neighborhood laundries that collect unwanted clothing items, which are then recycled and distributed by Hands Industries, a modern textile recycler and exporter of second-hand clothing.  

The UAE has become one of the world’s largest retail hubs, where fashion trends are current, and constantly evolving. 

This rapidly developing fashion sector has, however, made fashion highly disposable for a substantial portion of the population and used clothing items often find their ways to landfills instead of being donated to those who would benefit from them.   

Neighborhood laundries have been encouraged to deliver clothes hangers to their customers that are creatively customized with faces of people in need of donated clothes. 

The campaign, having run for three months has already resulted in the collection of eight tons of donated clothes, which are being distributed in a variety of ways. Hands Industries categorizes them into provision for used clothing markets, donation to African countries or for recycling purposes. The initiative will now become a year-round event due to its resonance with the public and its great cost efficiencies.   

Raza Beig, CEO, Splash, Iconic and Landmark International, said: “Today, markets are overloaded with unwanted, unused clothes and we have set out to turn that scenario into a positive with this initiative.  We truly value our partnership with both our laundry partners and Hands Industries who share a common vision with us for responsible sustainability and helping the less fortunate. The general public has been very receptive to our initiative and we are grateful for all of the generous contributions they have made so far.”
