According to Bhanu Choudhrie, Alpha utilities, a company owned by C&C Alpha Group plans to enter the water desalination initiative in the Saudi Arabian’s market. The firm owns the Sea Water Osmosis Desalination facility based in Sharjah. It produces and supplies 500,000 gallons of water every day to the Free Trade Zone Authority of Hamriyah and plans to increase this capacity of water to 2 million gallons as demand increases. Bhanu believes this water sector is a critical tool towards the success of the firm. The opportunity comes from the ongoing expansion of infrastructure in the deserts of the UAE. The Acwa Power company, a subset of Alpha, won a contract to construct an independent desalination facility in Rabigh on the coast of Red Sea. See more on Wikipedia.
Apart from desalination projects, C&C Alpha Group, under the leadership of Bhanu Choudhrie, has also undertaken other projects in training of pilots. The firm, through its Alpha Aviation Academy based in Sharjah, trains pilots for the short-term flying airlines and facilitates the recruitment of its pilots to UAE Air Arabia airline. From the growing number of air passengers and cargo shipping, the school now trains over 120 recruits to fulfill the available demand. The firm also has a training center in the Philippines where they train about 500 pilots whom they hope to recruit in the UAE. The training costs $162,000 and takes about 22 months to complete. Bhanu Choudhrie believes that the air demand in the Middle East is acting as the catalyst towards the expansion of training camps in Europe.
