New Middle East Office for Weir Techna


Weir Techna announces the official opening of its Riyadh branch.

The opening, was attended by the British Ambassador, and many other local dignitaries and businessmen key to the development of Saudi Arabia's infrastructure on 7 December 2003.

Weir Techna Saudi is a wholly owed subsidiary of The Weir Group PLC and has been established in partnership with Ali Al Zaid.

With nearly 100 years of success in the Middle East, Paul Capell, Divisional Managing Director of Weir Techna said "This latest facility brings us even closer to our Clients and we are sure that they will benefit from a stronger and more immediate service. We have always demonstrated a commitment to the regions in which we operate and are delighted to have formed this partnership with Ali Al Zaid. The Saudi Arabian market offers tremendous potential for Weir Techna, and for the Weir Group as a whole, and builds on our success with the desalination plant awarded earlier this year to Weir Techna by Kindasa Water Services of Jeddah."

Weir Techna's experience in all forms of desalination: Multistage Flash Evaporation (MSF), Reverse Osmosis (RO), and Mutiple Effect Distillation (MED) allows a valued judgement to be made in a marketplace which is changing dramatically. The expertise also includes the ability to refurbish and enhance the production from old facilities using the latest technologies.

Not only is the provision of fresh water vital to the economy, reclamation of waste water for use in agriculture can significantly enhance the total water supply without utilising scarce resources. Other areas where Techna has a desire to assist in the development of Saudi Arabia's infrastructure includes the provision of absorption chillers for airports, gas turbine inlet air-cooling and gas storage. These are all areas in which Weir Techna has a proven track record.
