FS-Elliott Co., a manufacturer of oil-free centrifugal air and gas compressors, shipped the first centrifugal compressor manufactured in Saudi Arabia.

Inaugurated in April 2010, FS-Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd. began as a joint venture between FS-Elliott Co., LLC, and GAS Arabian Services Co. Ltd. with the goal of providing locally packaged, reliable and energy-efficient air solutions to customers in the Middle East.

In December 2013, FS-Elliott Saudi Arabia Ltd. completed the packaging of three FS-Elliott Polaris industrial compressors for Saudi Airlines. The Polaris units marked the first centrifugal air compressors manufactured in Saudi Arabia, according to FS-Elliott.

The first API style engineered units manufactured in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are scheduled to ship within the next few months. This order includes two engineered PAP Plus A-Frame compressors for Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) affiliates Al Bayroni and Ar Razi.

FS-Elliott Saudi Arabia is in the process of a major equipment upgrade project with two SABIC affiliates. The SABIC affiliates will receive the Regulus Control System, a programmable logic control based system designed with processors and memory capabilities. The Regulus Control System allows operators to monitor and manage the performance of one or multiple compressors at the unit or remotely to meet air demands while maximizing energy savings.
