Tratos & Doosan cooperation
This cooperation was beneficial for Tratos in terms of advancing its research and innovation capacities. Indeed, the hot and dry conditions present in Egypt led to further improvements of TRATOSFLEX ES3.
Doosan Group’s slogan is “Building your tomorrow today”.
Established in 1962 when Korea was still in an embryonic stage of economic
development, Doosan opened a new industrial chapter by embarking on an ambitious undertaking to build Korea’s largest heavy industrial complex in Changwon in 1976. The company started out as a trading firm, importing raw materials and equipment for manufacturing and construction as well as cement.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction was successfully privatized when it joined the Doosan Group in 2000. The company has since been on the path to global leadership in power and water sectors. It supplies castings and forgings to support industries and builds power plants such as thermal and nuclear plants as well as desalination plants for customers around the world.
Did you know?
According to encyclopaedia Britannica, Damietta, is in the Nile River delta, Lower Egypt, on the Mediterranean coast. Damietta, the port of the governorate, is located 8 miles (13 km) from the Mediterranean, on the right (east) bank of the Damietta branch of the Nile.
Damietta was an important city of ancient Egypt and was formerly closer to the sea than it is at present. It declined with the development of Alexandria (after 322 BCE). In 638 CE it fell to Arab invaders, who made it a commercial centre famous for its textiles. Frequently attacked by the Crusaders, it was only briefly in their hands (1219–21; 1249–50). The settlement’s vulnerability to sea attacks led the Mamlūk sultan Baybars I (reigned 1260–77) to raze the town and fortifications, block access to the Damietta branch of the river, and erect a new town called Damietta 4 miles (6.4 km) inland on the present site. During both the Mamlūk and the Ottoman periods, the town was used as a place of banishment. After the construction in 1819 of the Maḥmūdiyyah Canal, which diverted much of the Nile’s shipping to Alexandria, Damietta’s importance as a trade centre diminished, although it retained some trade, principally with Syria.
In modern times dredging of the channel revived Damietta’s port; the port facilities were upgraded to relieve the overcrowding at Alexandria, but much traffic has been diverted to the west of Alexandria or east to Port Said. The city’s industries include furniture and clothing manufacturing, leatherworking, flour milling, and fishing. The city has several fine mosques. Damietta is linked to Cairo by rail via Banhā (Benha) and to Port Said and the Suez Canal zone by highway.
Tratos is very pleased to supply its high-quality cables to the ports around the world. In doing so, Tratos supports the global endeavours of port authorities in upgrading and improving their operational capabilities, which contributes to the sustainable development of ports and achieving the 17 UN Global Goals.
