Lahmeyer and Tractebel Engineering Consultancy have entered into a joint venture (JV) partnership.
The JV in association with the Al-Sulaimi Group will strengthen the local positioning of the international engineering company Tractebel.
The inauguration event was attended by CEOs of the companies’ most important customers.
Tractebel regional manager Middle East Alain Vannerum, said: “Our inauguration party was a big success as we were able to demonstrate the importance of the region. We could show our commitment to the energy transition and at the same time hold interesting discussions with our local customers.”
Vannerum also acknowledged the huge potential in the Omani market to install renewables on the grid.
A growing number of regional engineering projects made the establishment of a local subsidiary a logical step in the growth plan of the Tractebel company group.
The newly formed JV venture enables Tractebel to become more involved with its clients in the Sultanate as well as in the greater region.
The projects cover a broad range of different activities in the energy, water and infrastructure sectors, including for example master planning of Oman’s power generation and transmission through 2030, technical advisory as well as owner’s engineer services for various independent power plants and wind projects, including grid connection studies.
The organisation includes the new subsidiary in Muscat, Oman, as well as subsidiaries and offices in Dubai, Riyadh, Al-Khobar, Doha and Abu Dhabi.
Latest projects, two substations in Dubai, the power plant in Fadhili and the two master plans in Kuwait, demonstrate the service capability of the company in the Middle East.
