Endress+Hauser has invested roughly three million euros in a modern, state-of-the-art calibration and training centre in the industrial city of Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
“It was this vision that inspired us to create the new calibration and training centre,” said Mohammed Abdellah, managing director of Endress+Hauser Saudi Arabia, during the inauguration ceremony. “With this new centre, we are supporting the country to achieve these reforms and can also increase the local added value by offering local solutions,” he adds.
The kingdom wants to expand the private business sector and become less reliant on oil production, two key goals of the Vision 2030 program.
Hands-on training programs
The training centre features a classroom with interactive technology, an extensively equipped workshop and a field bus training lab. It offers practical, hands-on training programs designed to impart knowledge on measurement technologies and process control systems that are in demand by the hydrocarbon, power and water & wastewater industries.
Young Saudi engineers and university graduates will be able to use the facility to acquire technical know-how in accordance with the latest international standards. Local technical resources can enhance their knowledge and stay competitive with the customized trainings offered in the centre.
Cost-saving calibration services
The 2,700-square-meter facility houses a modern calibration center, the only vendor-managed gravimetric calibration facility in the region, from which Endress+Hauser will offer manufacturer-independent calibration services for measurement instruments. Endress+Hauser also offers reliable on-site calibration, leading to cost savings and a reduction in production downtime. “For us, it’s important to be able to address our customers’ needs in a flexible manner and to ensure that they are optimally managed,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group.
