HVPD celebrates Middle East expansion

“The market wants and needs HVPD to be here on a permanent basis”

We have signalled our growth intentions into the Middle East with the relocation of one of our senior business development figures and the opening of a new permanent office in Abu Dhabi.

Samuel Green, who has over ten years’ experience of the Oil and Gas industry, steps into the role of Middle East Sales Manager, having spent the last two years developing our customer base in the region. Samuel’s relocation to Abu Dhabi marks our third international office opening since 2013 after China and Australia respectively.

He commented: “I’m thrilled to be here. This is a very good move for us because the market wants and needs HVPD to be here on a permanent basis. This now means that Oil and Gas operators, Heavy Industry and Utilities providers in the region will have market-leading Partial Discharge solutions available on demand to help improve the reliability of their electrical networks.

The office will be co-opted with Al Mousawi Trading Co. LLC. Sayed Ahmed Al Mousawi, General Manager in Abu Dhabi, commented: “Samuel’s presence here will benefit local customers to understand the importance of partial discharge monitoring, its commercial and safety benefits and overall contribution to the improving their electrical asset maintenance strategies. Samuel has a great deal of experience in the Oil and Gas market and, by working together, I believe we can further the growth of HVPD in the region.”

Commenting on the significance of the move, our Business Development and Test Services Director, Marc Foxall, said: “We’re very excited that Samuel has taken up the challenge to represent HVPD in the Middle East. Samuel brings a wealth of experience to this new position, having worked on major projects in the Middle East for a number of years prior to being with us, and we’re confident this move will enable us to better support our customers, ensuring the local market has access to our technology and global expertise. HVPD has recognised the importance of the Middle East as a key market for many years, with clients such as Saudi Aramco, Dubai Metro, Dubai Petroleum, Total, Dolphin Energy, PDO and Sohar Aluminium, which is why we are pleased to finally make this transition. Through a combination of building on existing projects and working closely with our local representatives Al-Mousawi Trading Co. LLC, we’re confident this new venture will be a great success.”
