Saudi Aramco expressed their satisfaction with our Services team for their technical knowledge and on-site high caliber execution.
The team was able to solve many complex cybersecurity issues, while also meeting the customer’s shutdown schedules and reducing its duration.
To represent their satisfaction, Aramco Shaybah issued 4 total Appreciation Certificates to Nexus Controls:
- 2 Appreciation Certificates to FSE/Site Lead Mohamed Abdrabou
- 1 Appreciation Certificate to FSE/Site Lead Khaled Soltani
- 1 Appreciation Certificate to the entire Nexus Controls Business
Nexus Controls had agreed to fulfil the mobilization of more than ten manpower, including a team of sub-contractors and Field Services Engineers. However, given the COVID-19 pandemic scenario and legal travel restrictions, the team had to stop the work on the first day of mobilization and adapt their efforts. The customer provided separate rooms at the site in order to ensure that social distancing guidelines were respected. The team was then able to complete the project in a manner safe for everyone. Safety is our number one priority.
This achievement represents how Nexus Controls is being recognized as a credited partner to optimize operations, minimize downtime and improve safety through onsite services projects.
