In response to the huge Infrastructure/railway build up that took place between 2009-2017 particularly in Saudi Arabia & UAE, substantial assets required maintenance. Therefore, BE decided to target this opportunity and in 2017 BE entered into a joint venture agreement with Wabtec/Faiveley Transport, a Global US/French based leading manufacturer with subsidiaries in more than 24 countries who supplies several products to the rolling stock and railway industry for the purpose of seeking maintenance opportunities in the GCC and more specifically on the Riyadh Metro (A Multi-Billion $ Project).
BE teams in Riyadh with the global support of Wabtec-FT are currently serving the Rolling Stock maintenance requirements on a set of over 66 trains for the Riyadh Metro FAST Consortium and ANM Consortium for their retrofit, warranty & maintenance needs of Brake System & HVAC. BE successfully met clients demand for the past 2 years and the contract is ongoing. We look forward to expanding this business line in the future as we are convinced that maintenance services are undeserved in the MENA and the demand for specialized infrastructure and railway maintenance services will be increasing over the upcoming period.
