Cummins-Jaidah JV for Qatar power gen
Partnership will see US firm establish presence in Qatar
Jaidah Group has announced it is entering into a partnership with US power generation company Cummins, giving the company a solid presence in Qatar.
The joint venture will see the Jaidah Group, which has distributed Cummins products in the country in the past, distribute and service its own products.
Mohamed Jaidah, chief development officer for the Jaidah Group, said: “The new joint venture will provide power generation systems ranging from 8 to 3,000 kilovolt amperes of all sizes, not to mention related services and applications.”
He continued: “In the last five years, the massive increase in the number of projects and developments under way in Qatar has led to a similar rise in the demand for power generation equipment. The resulting increase in demand has opened an area of opportunity for the venture that I am talking about today.”
Rachid Ouenniche, Cummins Middle East MD, said: “This partnership was a natural fit for both parties and we’re delighted it continues to flourish. Cummins wants to maximise its profile in the rapidly-expanding Qatari market and Jaidah are, for us, the perfect partners to help us do this through this new entity.”
