Saudi Arabia: Industrial Gases Technology Air Products Builds Technology Center in Saudi Arabia
Air Products signed an agreement with Dhahran Techno Valley Company to build and develop an Industrial Gases technology center in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Lehigh Valley/USA — Located in the Dhahran Techno Valley Science Park, the center will serve as the cornerstone for industrial gas technology and project development in Saudi Arabia.
The new technology center is currently being designed and is expected to be fully operational by 2019. The center will ultimately become a base for collaboration with regional universities, as well as for supporting technical activities in the region. During design and construction of the new center, Air Products will base its operations from offices in Al Khobar.
The company has worked in Saudi Arabia since the 1970s and made long-term investments in the country since 2012 in conjunction with joint venture partners. Together with ACWA, Air Products is developing the world’s largest industrial gas complex to supply 75,000 metric tons per day of oxygen and nitrogen to Saudi Aramco’s power station and refinery in Jazan.
