Evening reception at the inauguration event of the newly established subsidiary

On 12 December 2017, the newly established subsidiary Lahmeyer and Tractebel Engineering Consultancy LLC in the Sultanate of Oman hosted an inauguration event for its opening. The Joint Venture with the Al-Sulaimi Group will strengthen the local positioning of the international engineering company Tractebel.

The inauguration event was attended by the CEOs of many of the companies’ most important customers. “Our inauguration party was a big success as we were able to demonstrate the importance of the region. We could show our commitment to the energy transition and at the same time hold interesting discussions with our local customers,” says Alain Vannerum, Regional Manager Middle East at Tractebel. “It was obvious during our discussions that Oman still has a huge potential to install renewables in their grid. This is a good opportunity for the new company to support our clients with the implementation.”

Numerous regional projects in energy and infrastructure

The newly formed local company enables the international engineering company to become an even stronger and more local partner to its clients in the Sultanate of Oman as well as in the greater region. A growing number of regional engineering projects made the establishment of a local subsidiary a logical step in the growth plan of the Tractebel company group.

The projects cover a broad range of different activities in the energy, water and infrastructure sectors, including for example master planning for the country’s power generation and transmission through 2030, technical advisory as well as owner’s engineer services for various independent power plants and wind projects, including grid connection studies.

Commitment to the Middle East

Tractebel and its subsidiary Lahmeyer formed a dedicated team of highly qualified employees and experienced experts to work on a broad range of different business activities. The organization includes the new subsidiary in Muscat, Oman, as well as subsidiaries and offices in Dubai, Riyadh, Al-Khobar, Doha and Abu Dhabi.

The latest projects, two substations in Dubai, the power plant Fadhili and the two master plans in Kuwait, demonstrate the service capability of the company in the Middle East. With these projects, the engineering company successfully supports its customers and simultaneously contributes to the energy transition in this challenging market environment.

About the company

As an international company of consulting engineers, Lahmeyer offers a wide range of planning and consultancy services. The main fields of activity are complex infrastructure projects in the Energy, Hydropower and Water Resources Sectors as well as in Building and Transportation. With origins dating back to 1890, the company has grown into one of the leading international companies with project experience in 165 countries. Since December 2014, Lahmeyer belongs to Tractebel, and thus is part of the ENGIE Group.
