Dussur, Saudi Aramco, and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) signed a joint venture in July 2019 to establish the first marine engine manufacturing facility in the MENA region. The venture will manufacture 2-stroke and 4-stroke marine and Electric Power Plant (EPP) engines, as well as, marine pumps that powers vessels, auxiliary equipment, generators, and propulsion systems. The engines manufactured will also be used in commercial vessels propulsion, electrical power generation, cargo oil pumps, and offshore rig pumps.

Located at Ras AlKhair in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province, the manufacturing facility will benefit from the Kingdom’s strategic geographic location at the crossroads of important international trade routes between three continents and represents another step to cement the Kingdom’s position as a unique regional logistical hub for global seaborn trade.

The venture is expected to create over 720 jobs and will encourage the transfer of knowledge and industry know-how to Saudi Arabia. The joint venture was signed with Saudi Aramco Development Company (SADCO) set to own 55 percent of its shares, while Dussur will own 15 percent, and Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) is to own 30 percent (KSOE is a sub-holding company under Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) Holding).
