The manufacturing facility will be co-located with the maritime yard in Ras Al-Khair, the King Salman International Complex for Maritime Industries, where it will develop synergies with several complementary ventures from both a supply or demand point of view.
The new JV, will manufacture 4-stroke engines under HHI’s HiMSEN brand licensing, serving as a regional production stronghold to support the growing demand for electricity in the MENA region as well as marine applications for very large and small vessels. The new JV will also operate under a MAN-HHI sublicense for the manufacturing and servicing of 2-stroke engines.
The parties have identified strong economic and strategic levers to the new JV such as: the lower costs of production due to the advantaged supply of machine finished steel and iron components for engines and pumps from the casting & forging facility JV in Ras Al-Khair, fixed and variable costs synergies related to the integration of 2 & 4 stroke engines in one shop, competitive advantaged related to the transportation of such engines from other international sources, increasing demand of 4 stroke engines either as complementary or backup power generation systems to support the growing demand for renewable power generation and remotely located new power plants, among a number of other internal advantages related to the contribution of each partner to the deal.
