The tower division designs and fabricates power transmission and telecom towers. Begining in 2009, AIC has added the capacity to serve global markets beyond the GCC. The list of clients includes all the GCC utility companies, Etisalat, Nokia, Siemens, Ericsson and Motorola. Major contractors operating in the region like Hyundai Engineering have testified to our superior quality and delivery.
Our tower designers utilize the "Tower" program from Power Line Systems - USA and the detailing is done using AutoCAD and X-Steel software. We are capable of designing and detailing to metric and American(inch) specifications.
AIC Tower plant is also located near Jeddah with annual capacity exceeding 72,000MT. It is equipped with high productivity CNC machines to process angles and plates. Proudly, this plant utilizes one of the largest galvanizing kettles in the region with 12.5 meter of galvanizing bath for larger components, and 8 meter bath for smaller pieces. All of our galvanizing processes are in accordance to international specifications such as ASTM A123, BS729, and ISO 1460. AIC is an active member of the ASTM International Organization and the American Galvanizers Institute.
AIC assembles a prototype tower prior to the start of mass production to ensure that the tower erection proceeds without any problems. Tower testing, if desired, is carried out at several internationally recognized test facilities in the region.
