Cellmec in German partnership deal
Manama, March 23, 2013
Cellmec, a Bahraini engineering company, said it has signed a technology transfer and partnership agreement with German firm IDS Technology, a key manufacturer of components for industrial electrical control and distribution panels.
The partnership is the 12th of its kind in the world and will position Cellmec at the forefront of the GCC and Mena region, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Cellmec-Bahrain chairman Rizwana Johar and IDS Technology-Germany managing director Johan Mayer signed the deal at a ceremony held in Sofitel Hotel and Spa, Zallaq.
Cellmec said the technology transfer and partnership agreement will enable it to produce state-of-the-art intelligent motor control centres solutions with fully draw-out test-connect concepts in all forms of power and communication connectivities compliant with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards and with internal arc containment requirements.
The innovative technology eliminates inherent weaknesses of the conventional motor control centre systems.
The benefits of the new technology include increased durability, reliability and minimisation of production losses.
Industries that are likely to benefit from the agreement include oil and gas, petrochemicals and aluminium.
In accordance with IEC standards based on products range from Terasaki-Japan, successful equipment tests were conducted at IPH test facilities in Germany to assess the design and production capability of the Bahraini firm.
Cellmec currently manufactures fully type tested switchgear, motor control centres and other electrical distribution equipment.-TradeArabia News Service
