Visit to Egypt by Matthew Denton to Introduce and Integrate Smart Solutions to a Wide Market in Egypt
OTTAWA, Canada: In September 2020, Giatec Scientific had announced a partnership with Diamond, a market leader and key supplier to concrete producers in Egypt. Matthew Denton, our Channel Manager, recently visited Diamond in Egypt, where together they worked on the collective goal to educate the market by introducing many of their customers to the maturity method: a non-destructive approach to testing concrete that allows you to estimate the early-age and compressive strength of in-place concrete in real-time.
Orascom, the leading construction company in Egypt, saw value in our SmartRockTM product upon which we made contact with a decision maker who was looking to adopt our technology into their key products. With a high amount of construction taking place in Egypt and tight project timelines, Orascom were looking to implement technology to improve their project schedules. Upon Orascom’s request, we arranged a meeting between Giatec, Diamond, and Orascom’s top management. Giatec also presented SmartRock to a group of engineers involved with the Mega Mono Rail project, following which Orascom/Diamond and Giatec arranged the first trial of SmartRock to be carried out in the Mono Rail project.
We are thrilled to announce that the collaboration between Orascom and Giatec to implement the maturity method into their current and future projects is set to begin soon! Construction and innovation have always been key pillars of Egypt’s cultural landscape, ranging from the ancient architecture of their pyramids to their currently booming construction sector. As the fast-growing market leader in the construction and concrete industry, Giatec could not be more excited about this collaboration!
SmartRock is the most widely used wireless concrete sensor, currently being implemented in over 8,000 construction projects worldwide. As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening. Together with the Giatec 360™ platform, and SmartHub™ remote monitoring system this has enabled faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.
