Chromalloy has formed a new joint venture to provide the Middle East with life-cycle gas turbine engine servicing solutions.
The US company has teamed up with Arabian Qudra – a Saudi Arabia-based service provider of electrical equipment in power and industrial plants – to form Chromalloy Arabia.
The new venture will provide component repair, new parts, field services, system upgrades and long term service agreements, as well as monitoring and diagnostic systems.
The announcement was made yesterday at a press briefing on the opening day of POWER-GEN Middle East in Abu Dhabi.
Chromalloy President Carlo Luzzatto said: “Chromalloy Arabia leverages the innovations and advancements of two leading energy industry service providers to meet the growing demands of the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.”
He said that the new company “brings together Chromalloy’s expertise in gas turbine engine technologies with Arabian Qudra’s advancements and outstanding energy service legacy”.
Arabian Qudra’s chief operations officer Ahmed Al Bedaie said Chromalloy Arabia “is a strategic partnership delivering innovative energy and industrial sector solutions in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Middle East”.
Chromalloy Arabia will be headquartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and will also have a sales office in Dubai.
