Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced recently that Yokogawa Saudi Arabia has been selected as the process control system supplier for the Rabigh II project, in which Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical have decided to invest. Yokogawa will supply its flagship products, the CENTUM VP production control system and the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system for the petrochemical complex. The move is an indication that Yokogawa's business partners acknowledge its success in the Rabigh I project and has full confidence in Yokogawa's capabilities.
Since the foundation of Yokogawa Saudi Arabia in 2006, Yokogawa has strengthened its engineering capabilities in the Kingdom through the course of several mega projects. Yokogawa's success in these projects has earned the customer's confidence in its local project execution capabilities, leading to the decision for the Rabigh II project to be fully executed in Saudi Arabia at the company facilities in Dhahran Techno-Valley. The execution of this project in the Kingdom follows Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical's guidance on the maximization of Saudi Arabian content.
