Al-Bahar with territories across the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain partnering with Caterpillar Oil & Gas for the fourth consecutive year, utilised the opportunity to demonstrate the most innovative Cat® Petroleum power system products, services and customized solutions that help its customers achieve continued success.

The Al-Bahar booth at ADIPEC witnessed key customers like the National Drilling Corporation (NDC), GASCO, ADCO, ADMA, Al Hosn Gas, Zadco, Esnaad and Schlumberger, who discussed innovative solution requirements. The booth exhibited the full range of Cat® Oil & Gas products with the Cat Ex Hazpak C15 ACERT Explosion Proof Diesel Engine and Cat Reman Parts, while Al-Bahar’s Rental Power and Cat EMSolutions for Oil & Gas were also highlighted. The key message highlighted the customer benefits of Cat products’ durability, reliability, safety and Al-Bahar’s unmatched aftermarket product support services and solutions, which allowed customers lower their operating costs, minimize downtime and increase safety and productivity – all highly critical especially during these challenging times.

Cat® Safety Focus

The world is becoming more and more safety-focused and for an industry like Oil and Gas with hazardous locations, Caterpillar is the only manufacturer to offer a fully certified range of Cat Ex Hazpak engines and solutions. Caterpillar has also invested in Pyroban, to deliver safety to the Oil and Gas industry. Cat generators are fully certified from the factory for mechanical and electrical hazards. They are also ATEX and NEC compliant, making them the ideal choice among customers.

Reflecting the need for safety in the industry, Al-Bahar had showcased the CAT Ex-SIT Double-Walled Exhaust Pipe system, a cost-effective solution for 1-Megawatt and above Diesel Generator Sets, located in Added Safety areas or Zone 2 Hazardous areas (when used in conjunction with gas detection safety shut down system). The system can be used as an alternative, to exhaust gas coolers and will transport hot exhaust gas, to a safe area whilst maintaining a surface temperature below the T3 (200oC) class.

Cat® Reman

Cat products are designed and manufactured to be remanufactured. Cat Reman solutions offered by Al-Bahar provide different repair options based on specific repair needs with warranty and services. “At Al-Bahar, we constantly upgrade our solution offerings and services enabling lower ownership and operating costs for our clients. Oil & Gas customers demand responsiveness and availability at competitive price points and Cat Remanufactured products are a good solution to meeting their budget requirements without any compromise on quality,” said Mr. Daniel Berube, Commercial Manager, Cat Reman EAME & Eurasia, talking about the benefits of using Cat Reman Parts.

He added, “We offer Reman components for gas and diesel 3300-3600 engine platforms, such as cylinder liners, complete turbochargers, and cartridges for customers in Gas Compression, Land Drilling, Offshore Drilling, and Well Service applications. We also offer several Reman long and short blocks for C7 – 3400 diesel engines and 3300 gas engines, as well as complete Reman engines for G3300 engines. Meanwhile, Reman offerings for gas and diesel 3500 and 3600 engines are coming soon.” The Al-Bahar booth at ADIPEC 2015 was an ideal stop for customers looking for versatile offerings clubbed with unmatched service offerings.

As a conclusion, the 18th edition of ADIPEC was host to around 85,000 trade professionals from 120 countries with 7,000 delegates, 2000+ exhibitors and more.
