Mapei will be the platinum sponsor of the fourth Arabian Tunnelling Conference and Exhibition (ATC), which will take place from 21st to 22nd of February 2017, at the Ritz Carlton DIFC Hotel in Dubai.
With a focus on advancing technologies related to tunnelling and underground space industries, the event will serve as the GCC’s most important gathering of both local and international professionals and experts.
Mapei’s dedicated Underground Technology Team (UTT) business unit, which offers highly trained on-site technical support for all underground works, will take the opportunity to showcase wide range of products for tunnelling, mining and underground construction
“Thanks to Mapei UTT, we are in the tunnel with you, from the start to the end of the job,” said Stefano Iannacone, Managing Director of Mapei Construction Chemicals.
Founded in Milan (Italy) in 1937 and with a regional headquarter in Dubai operating since 2007, Mapei has developed a high-level technical know-how in the field of underground works by operating on-site for underground construction and mining projects across the world.
Examples of this product’s use in the region’s projects include the Doha Metro (44km of tunnel), Abu Hamour project (9.5km) in Qatar, Riyadh Metro (33km), Al-Haer Waste Water Conveyor (12km) in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi STEP project (41km) and the Dubai Metro.
Constant investment into research and development – some 5% of the company’s annual turnover – continues to drive the ongoing improvement of both Mapei’s existing products and new UTT product lines.
Mapei currently has 81 subsidiaries and a total of 70 production facilities located across the world in 32 different countries on five different continents.
