International environmental solutions provider, TWMA, is celebrating a decade of success in Egypt with a major HSE milestone.
The growth of operations in Egypt has been so significant that as well as continual upgrades to both the Alexandria and Cairo sites, turnover for these operations has reached almost $9million per annum, in previous years. Most notably, staff numbers have more than doubled over the last ten years reaching 50 in 2017, all of whom are Egyptian locals.
The linchpin to TWMA’s success in Egypt has been the establishment of long-standing, strong relationships with some of the industry’s largest operators in the region, along with the company’s demonstrable health and safety track record which recently resulted in an impressive five year milestone.
Abdelrahman Amin, Egypt General Manager at TWMA, said: “Egypt has always been an important country for TWMA as our Alexandria and Cairo facilities were our first established operations in the MENA region.
“We recently reached five consecutive years with zero Lost Time Incidents across our onshore and offshore operations in the region. This was a fantastic achievement which underpinned the team’s commitment to a strong safety culture and the highest possible standards in all our operations.
“We are extremely proud that 100% of our team in Egypt are local employees whose wealth of knowledge of the country is key to TWMA’s ongoing growth and success.”
TWMA has made ongoing investment in its Egypt facilities which have evolved significantly over the past ten years. Abdelrahman continued: “It was important that we increased the waste storage and process capacities of the Alexandria facility, which included upgrading our TCC RotoMill® to process increased amounts of waste. We also upgraded our maintenance and fabrication capabilities as well as the offices of our Cairo site.
“We continually improve our sites which have allowed us to successfully introduce our innovative technology in Egypt, across a range of projects from small and ad-hoc to large and long-term. We continue to build strong relationships with our clients, who include international companies and operators, and this has ensured we maintain a large presence in the country which allows us to diversify into other countries such as the UAE.”
Moving forward, TWMA plans to upgrade and further increase the slops treatment capabilities of the Alexandria site which will support its complete service offering in the region. The company will also be utilising its Offshore Thermal Treatment - TCC RotoMill® and its Onshore Mobile Thermal Treatment - TCC RotoTruck® technologies at additional client sites.
