Infrastructure companies in the Middle East will have to embrace new technologies in order to make their contribution to a cleaner environment and meet low emissions targets, according to leading industry expert Prasad Mane of Frost & Sullivan.

Prasad, who is delivering a presentation entitled ‘Efforts towards Low Emission Targets: Clean Construction Industry’ at PMV Live 2016 on November 23, said fuel efficiency and emission control are becoming big concerns for environmental policy makers.

He said: “Heavy machinery manufacturers have already started using alternative fuel sources in their machines and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) are now using liquefied natural gas, CNG, bio-diesels and so forth. OEMs have taken the initiative to develop high performance diesel machines that are fuel efficient. Caterpillar’s Flexible Camshaft Technology also emanates lower particulate matter by keeping the fuel cleaner.

“Government institutions in GCC countries are also taking measures to improve fuel quality, through the usage of unleaded gasoline, the proposal to use green diesel by converting natural gas to liquified fuel, and strict adherence to follow the air pollutant standards for carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides as per GSO 2015 guideline.”

Major manufacturers are playing their part by developing advanced fuel-efficient diesel engines and equipment and engines adhering to lower emissions. JCB for example has recently developed its advanced fuel-efficient diesel engine ecoMAX using the 16 valve technology. This engine will be capable of providing better fuel efficiency, guaranteeing reliability and a longer life. The ecoMAX engine is imported to GCC countries from India.

Caterpillar is considering launching a number of products equipped with lower emission technologies such as 336F LN XE, 352F L XE Long Reach excavators; 966M XE, 918M compact wheel loaders.

Prasad explained: “The GCC construction equipment industry is expected to rise from US$ 673.5 million in 2015 to US$ 1,014.9 million in 2020, registering a CAGR of 8.55%, so the new industry products should reflect this by using fuel-efficient and low-emission technology, big data analytics, on-site safety-related technology and advanced hydraulic technology.”

Prasad, a principal consultant at Frost and Sullivan, who also heads the Global Off Highway Program (Construction, Mining and Farm Equipment) for the MENASA region, will present his case at PMV Live 2016 in the ‘Tools of the Trade’ Theatre at the Dubai Word Trade Centre from 16.30-17.30 on 23 November.

Prasad comes with an in depth understanding of the growing passenger, commercial vehicle and off highway vehicles business sectors and on the growing aftermarket opportunities for OEMs in India, the Middle East and North Africa regions.

Middle East Concrete and PMV Live 2016, organised by dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, are the biggest and most prestigious infrastructure and heavy machinery events in the Middle East.

More than 400 exhibitors from 40 countries will showcase their wares at the shows to an expected 32,000 visitors. Some familiar show features will be returning such as Selfies at Height, Robotics, Excavator Challenge and Decorative Concrete.

Middle East Concrete and PMV Live will bring key regional and international industry leaders under one roof at the New Za’abeel Halls 4-6 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

What is more, there will be a strong educational element with over 50 free-to-attend and CPD certified workshops, seminars and forums delivered by industry experts who will be highlighting the market’s current trends, challenges, opportunities and best practices.
