Doosan Portable Power secures Saudi compressor order

Doosan Portable Power (DPP) has won an order worth €2 million ($2.43 million) for portable compressors in Saudi Arabia.

The deal was finalised at the Intermat 2018 Exhibition which was held in Paris, France.

The compressors have been purchased by the rental business, EJAR, based in Jeddah, through Tamgo, the authorised dealer for Doosan compressors, lighting towers and construction tools in Saudi Arabia, said a statement.

The order is for 50 Doosan 9/235HA portable compressors each providing 23.4 cu m/minute (825 cfm) of compressed air at a rated operating pressure of 8.6 bar (125 psi), it said.

The 9/235HA is ideal for the full range of compressed air applications from construction, rental, utilities and manufacturing to quarrying, water well drilling, sand blasting and the oil and gas industry, it added.

Gaby Rhayem, regional director Middle East and Africa (MEA) for Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said: “The 9/235HA is a long-time staple of our industry and is the most popular compressor of its type in the Middle East and Africa.”

“EJAR chose the 9/235HA for renewal of the company’s rental fleet, based on the outstanding performance and durability of our products over many years,” he added.

With a well proven Doosan airend and powered by a fuel efficient Cummins engine, the 9/235HA compressor has been designed to ensure the unit performance, durability and reliability are guaranteed in the tough environment of the Middle East, said a statement.
