Middle Eastern milestone for FS Elliott

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

FS Elliott has set an industry milestone and shipped the first centrifugal compressor manufactured in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Inaugurated in April 2010, FS Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd began as a joint venture between FS Elliott Co, LLC and GAS Arabian Services Co. Ltd with the goal of providing locally packaged, reliable, and energy efficient air solutions to customers in the Middle East. As a result of the joint venture, FS Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd has provided local support to over 250 operating installations. 

In December of last year, FS Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd. completed the packaging of three FS Elliott Polaris industrial compressors for Saudi Airlines. The Polaris units marked the first centrifugal air compressors manufactured in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first API style engineered units manufactured in the Kingdom are scheduled to ship within the next few months. This order includes two engineered PAP Plus A-Frame compressors for Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) affiliates; Al Bayroni and Ar Razi.


Aref Al Dabal, Managing Director, FS Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd said, ‘temperatures in the Middle East often rise to 120 °F in the summer months. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers like Saudi Airlines and SABIC a locally built compressed air system they can count on to keep their operations running smoothly, especially during conditions of extreme heat and humidity.’
