Applus+ in Saudi Arabia Provided QA/QC Services to Reduce the Construction Risk at a Major Oil Refinery


    Applus+ Velosi in Saudi Arabia mobilised 280 inspectors to carry out quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) site inspections on welding, pipe-coatings and electrical installations on a large refinery project in Saudi Arabia.

    In addition, a team of 24 QA/QC technicians were present to oversee the inspection and construction of a 1,200 km pipeline for the same client. These projects build upon the Applus+ Energy & Industry Division's strong presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where our well-established team and the Group’s resources deliver the highest quality of service to major clients in the Oil & Gas Industry. During these projects, we were able to mobilise a total of 350 personnel in very short space of time.

    Applus+ Velosi's strong commitment to HSQE is a key component to the contracts' success. Our teams work in temperatures averaging 45 degrees celsius, so safe and working practices are vital.

    Mohammed Abu Shahin, Project Manager at Applus+ Velosi in Saudi Arabia stated, “Our commitment to quality and excellence has brought us many new opportunities in the Oil & Gas sector. We are extending our services with this major client and I am sure that we will win more projects going forward. This demonstrates the trust that our clients have in Applus+.”
