About Vale

About Vale

We are one of the world’s largest mining companies in iron ore, nickel and pellets production operating in around 30 countries across 5 continents. Attracted by the Sultanate’s strategical location outside the Strait of Hurmuz, Vale invested around $ 2 billion in its pelletizing plant with a nominal capacity of 9 million ton of pellets per annum connected with a distribution center with 40 million ton of handling capacity.

Vale came to Oman in 2007 with a mission to transform natural resources into prosperity and sustainable development. Since then, we have been working to contribute to the future of the Sultanate and its people. With our industrial complex based in Sohar, we value our employees and the local communities surrounding our operations.

Vale plays a large role in your everyday life and in the world around you. We are proud to share more information about our business and how we are contributing to the sustainability of Oman.
