DAMMAM, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – May 9, 2024 – Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, announced Thursday it is expanding its Industrial & Energy Technology (IET) Damman Center in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Once completed, the expansion is expected to create 60 new jobs and will add capacity for the current manufacturing and repairs of compression trains, seal gas and control panels. In addition, the expanded site will add capabilities for the manufacturing and testing of vibration monitoring systems and for gears repairs.

The announcement was made at a groundbreaking ceremony hosted by Baker Hughes and attended by representatives from the Ministry of Energy, executives from the company’s long-term strategic partner Aramco, and local suppliers.
