Honeywell announced the launch of a new production facility for oil and gas projects in Saudi Arabia, Zawya Reported.
The facility has been developed as part of a joint venture (JV) partnership between Honeywell’s Elster Instromet Saudi Arabia and Gas Arabian Services.
Furthermore, it employs Elster® precision solutions, a portfolio of Honeywell solutions that include extensive, end-to-end technologies for gas and liquid metering, as well as control applications. Through the project, Honeywell aims to provide Aramco with approved solutions.
This launch comes in line with the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Honeywell and Aramco in 2017, under which Honeywell undertakes commercial efforts to assist Aramco in achieving the goals of the In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) Program.
George Bou Mitri, Vice President and General Manager for Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies in the Middle East said, “Honeywell has been serving the Saudi Arabian market with instrumentation, control systems and advanced application solutions for many decades. The new facility will help drive knowledge transfer and support the creation of highly skilled roles.”
The facility is located in the Royal Commission area of Jubail and includes a 2,000 sqm workshop and more than 1,000 sqms in office space for handling in-Kingdom projects, including manufacturing and assembling.
