Atlas Copco Rental Middle East is a leading specialised rental solutions provider of compressed air, power, steam and nitrogen rental equipment and services.

Atlas Copco Rental Middle East, with its focus on downstream, midstream and upstream projects, has supplied solutions not only to mega projects such as the Jizan refinery project, the Fadhili gas plant and the Master Gas Expansion, but also to many existing facilities in the oil and gas and the manufacturing industry, assuring them the best support and reliability, says Akram Tamari, Regional General Manager of Atlas Copco Rental Middle East, North Africa & India.

'This year we added steam boilers to our fleet in the region to offer a complete solution for our customers during the pre-commissioning activities and shutdown jobs,' he says.

Currently, Atlas Copco Rental Middle East has the biggest regional depot in Jubail and also depots in major cities like Riyadh, Khobar and Jeddah, and a depot under construction in Yanbu near major oil and gas facilities to cover the western coast of Saudi Arabia, reveals Tamari.

Last year, the company moved to the Jubail depot, which has more than 10,000 sq m of space to accommodate its fleet and operations in the eastern part of Saudi Arabia.

Because of the growing demand for specialised rental solutions, Atlas Copco Rental Middle East continues adding new equipment and products to its portfolio including steam boilers, pumps and high-pressure diesel driven compressors.

'Last year our major focus was on supporting contractors in the oil and gas and petrochemical sectors with innovative solutions to meet the changing demand in the market,' he says.

Jizan refinery project was a tremendous success for Atlas Copco’s 100 per cent oil-free air solutions as its key customers were looking for solutions with the highest quality, reliability and safety standards.

Another success area was the midstream projects with many gas pipelines being laid throughout the kingdom where Atlas Copco Rental Middle East provided major contractors with its state-of-the-art on-site nitrogen generation membranes that helped them achieve better results in less time, he notes.

'Our sales engineers located all over the region work closely with our customers to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution to match the requirements of their application.

The company offers to include DNV crash frames for offshore deployment, corrosion-proof products for marine environments as well as ATEX-certified compressors operating in offshore areas, Tamari explains.

Regarding safety, he says safety as a priority is not easy to achieve nor to maintain, thus, more focus will be always required on team competency and equipment quality assurance.

'We are proud in Atlas Copco Rental Middle East that we are operating with Zero downtime related to work accidents since more than ten years. Safety is key in everything we do and the way we do it.

'As safety is everyone’s responsibility, we always make sure that, we deploy the latest procedures in our operations and the solutions we provide.'

This includes regular toolbox talks, training programmes, initiatives to report near miss actions and incidents through a mobile app that is used by all employees.

To a question on Saudi Vision 2030, he says: 'We believe that Vision 2030 has affected all aspects of life and it carries a great amount of progress and opportunities. The focus in shifting economy from oil dependency to more diversification means that we will find new customers, applications and industries, which actually requires a more innovative and agile operation that can meet these new challenges.'
