ComRent come to the Middle East
US load bank rental company form JV with KSA?s Power Engineering
ComRent International, a US load bank rental company in North America, and Power Engineering, a power generation and services company headquartered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, have formed a joint venture to supply power testing solutions in the Middle East, ComRent announced on Wednesday.
From December, ComRent will be providing testing of critical backup and primary power systems across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the Middle East from its new office in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
The company has moved into the Middle Eastern market in anticipation of strong growth of the energy sector, says Paul Clewell, vice president, global development for ComRent International:
“We expect Saudi Arabia’s energy consumption to more than double in the next 15 years, giving rise to a more concentrated effort to leverage today’s technology to develop more efficient power systems.
Power Engineering is a full turnkey supplier operating in Saudi Arabia’s and the region’s telecoms, oil and gas, utilities, commercial and industrial sectors.
The company is part of the Saudi-owned Almisehal Group, which services the major oil companies and telecom operators in the Kingdom.
