Honeywell announced that UOP, a Honeywell company, has established a new technical center at the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia to offer enhanced technical support, regional training services and research and development collaboration with universities and customers in the region.

The new office, located on the campus of the KFUPM, includes facilities for customer training programs and technical support offices for UOP, a global leader in the development and licensing of technology and products used in petroleum refining.

The first UOP training course is scheduled to begin in the middle of December. “UOP has been a key partner to the Saudi Arabian refining and petrochemical industry for 40 years,” said Rajeev Gautam, UOP president and CEO. “This initiative will significantly enhance the way we transfer technology, and the location of this new center will enable us to maintain close links with the university community and with Saudi petroleum industries for ongoing research and development collaborations.”

The new center is part of a broader Honeywell initiative to build an integrated facility for three of its businesses at the university's Dhahran Techno Valley business cluster. Honeywell Building Solutions, Honeywell Process Solutions and UOP will open a joint office to better manage existing relationships and partnerships with organizations such as KFUPM, while keeping close geographical proximity to its many important customers in the energy industry. This integrated office is projected to open in the fourth quarter of 2010, at which time the UOP technical services center will relocate to this new location.

KFUPM is a leading educational organization for science and technology located in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, with more than 8,000 students. The DTV was established by the KFUPM to attract the research and development centers of local and international companies and to promote new businesses. It is envisaged as a leading research and technology development nucleus with comprehensive business support.
