Surf and Turf, a company specialized in environmental maintenance and preservation, in an event at the Grand Hyatt – Muscat, unveiled an exclusive range of beach cleaning equipments, to facilitate environmental protection and preservation in the Sultanate. The launch conducted at the Habrout Ballroom on 29th July 2007, included a product demonstration and ensued with a press conference. The event was also attended by delegates from the Municipality, representatives from Ministry of Tourism, business community and journalists.
The full featured Marnett coastal cleaning equipments utilized by the company are well equipped to clean the sand beaches and water of oil, floating and semi-floating deposits.
Emphasizing on the reason for selecting Oman for this landmark venture, Mr. Nader Zantout, General Manager of Surf and Turf said, “The diverse topography of the country makes it an exclusive tourist destination in the Middle East. However, the current environmental issues faced by the Sultanate such as the red tide seasons, debris lining up the beaches and threats to the coral reefs would prove detrimental to the marine life. To add to this, the impact of the cyclone Gonu has been far and wide, contaminating the coastline of Oman in several regions. We believe that our initiative to introduce the beach cleaning services in Oman will facilitate maintenance and protection of the natural coastlines of the country and eventually attract tourists to the country.”
Surf and turf is the first privately owned venture to offer customized environmental protection solutions in the Middle East. The company utilizes its state-of-the-art technology and high levels of expertise to provide key solutions to beach cleaning, sand cleaning, oil recycling and waste management issues. The company provides a full fledged package to clients, right from consultancy, project estimation to project management complete with services and maintenance.
Surf and Turf has the prefect solution for clearing up the stretches of sand contaminated by glass, pebbles, sea weeds, debris or Avian Influenza. The BeachTech sand cleaning machines operate on a patented ‘lift and sift’ technique which exposes the sand to the purifying sun rays and eliminates it of all harmful microbes. The trash and debris are removed while sand is returned to the beach. These machines are available in different models, tailored to meet the requirements and the size of the area to be cleaned.
In order to overcome the water and marine pollution due to oil spillage and subsequent destruction of the coral reefs, the company will offer oil recycling solutions which ensure that the oil is processed efficiently without generating any residues. The by-products of this process are effectively utilized in the production of high-quality recycled bases, fertilizers and asphalt used in the construction of roads.
Surf and Turf are specialized in waste management projects wherein the organic wastes are collected and decomposed in a bio-gas treatment plant to produce biogas fuel. The resulting liquid residue is further treated to and suitable for watering purposes.
