Emerson opens Dammam plant

February 2017

Emerson Automation Solutions, a global technology and engineering company, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Dammam to expand its local manufacturing, project execution and service capabilities.

The 1,100-sq-m facility will provide engineering, staging, commissioning, operational support, maintenance support, repair, field services and training support to customers in the Eastern Province.

It will be a dedicated unit 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.

David Kraft, the vice-president of Emerson Plantweb Solutions Group for the Middle East and Africa, said: “Strengthening our local manufacturing capabilities will allow us to implement and deliver solutions to our customers more quickly, create new jobs, and contribute in the development of the country’s manufacturing sector.”
