Enware, a leading Australian supplier of stainless steel emergency safety showers, has made its largest export delivery to date, to the $US10.8 billion Ma’aden aluminium complex in Saudi Arabia. 

Enware has delivered more than 700 of its Australian designed and manufactured emergency safety showers along with associated safety equipment to be used for the project. 

The Ma’aden complex, which from this year will become the largest and most efficient vertically integrated aluminium complex in the world, is a joint venture between Alcoa and the Korean-based design, construct and engineering company Hyundai. 

The project will use Saudi Arabia's bauxite resources to profitably produce aluminium for domestic and international markets. It will also facilitate the development of domestic downstream industries in the Kingdom. 

Ma’aden envisages production at an annual mining rate of 4.0 million tons a year of bauxite. 

Enware’s tough, reliable and technically advanced safety equipment will be used at diverse locations throughout the Ma’aden project. 

Enware Australia Managing Director Mr Adam Degnan said the supply of the custom-designed safety technology to Hyundai is a wonderful vote of confidence that could lead to further export opportunities for Enware. 

Range of products 

Enware is already the largest manufacturer of stainless steel safety showers in Australia and exports a range of products to 15 countries. 

One of Enware’s latest products to be marketed internationally is the EM850 Australian manufactured safety shower and eyewash. 

The unit features solar battery charging for use in the world’s remotest and harshest conditions. 

The relocatable self-contained safety shower with eyewash is already in use by leading resources, engineering and project management companies in QLD and Western Australia. 

“Gaining recognition and accolades from a company such as Hyundai has already seen us receive an order from another company for identical safety systems for a similar refinery in the Middle East, said Mr Degnan. “We have also seen an increase in Request For Tenders for overseas projects.” 

Mr Degnan said Hyundai had already inquired about using Enware equipment in two further projects in the Middle East. 

Enware, which has won design awards in Australia and overseas for its specialist plumbing and stainless steel safety products, has a strong network throughout Australia and New Zealand. 

It also established offices in Singapore to grow exports to that country as well as to Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Thailand, while also opening a base in Dubai to serve rapidly growing markets in India and the Middle East.
