ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC signed an exclusive strategic partnership with Norwegian-based MAT Filtration Technologies and MAT-KULING for land-based aquaculture, water treatment projects and filtration throughout both the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Structured to provide a viable, turnkey solution for several of the region’s upcoming megaprojects, the partnership will focus on supporting food security through the development of aquaculture farms, which will utilize MAT-KULING’s Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS).
“With both the UAE and Saudi Arabia seeking to reinforce their national food security programs, in addition to the international challenges facing the global fishing industry, our partnership with MAT Filtration Technologies and MAT-KULING is a strategic step which will combine the strengths of both companies to provide a cost-effective, state-of-the-art solution for aquaculture, thereby supporting the region’s longer-term, self-sufficiency targets,” said Kez Taylor, CEO of ALEC.
With over a decade of experience in manufacturing filtration equipment, MAT-KULING’s product range has been fine-tuned to make it more operator-friendly focused, while remaining durable enough to cope with the harsh humid conditions of the Middle Eastern summers. Having integrated RAS technology into its offering, the new regional partnership is not only able to adhere to stricter environmental regulations in terms of energy consumption, but also through its materials, which are made from non-osmotic and ozone sustainable plastic materials.
