The 1,100-meter-square facility in Dammam will provide engineering, staging, commissioning, operational support, maintenance support, repair, field services and training support to customers in the capital of Saudi Arabia's eastern region. It will be dedicated for control and safety systems, reliability technologies and remote automation solutions for wellheads, pipelines and terminals.
The facility has the capability to manufacture integrated control and safety system components including network devices, workstations, controllers, and I/O modules, and perform simultaneous staging of up to 100 system cabinets. This will help customers to shorten project schedules and efficiently test systems for faster commissioning and start-up.
In addition to Dammam, Emerson has facilities in Al Khobar, Jubail, and Dhahran Techno Valley and is building a Technology and Collaboration Center in Dhahran Techno Valley. To be inaugurated later this year, the Dhahran facility will be home to research and development and training facilities, and will launch collaborative programs with emerging local talent from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals and King Abdullah University of Science & Technology as well as with Saudi Aramco and other local stakeholders.
