Kuwait-based Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Company (JTC) said its power rental division has successfully completed the procurement of 102 new units of Cummins diesel generators, thereby taking its total fleet strength to more than 700 units with capacities ranging from 100 kVA to 1,250 kVA.
A major player in the power rental, equipment leasing, transportation and logistics industry in Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, JTC provides professional and cost-effective power solutions, equipment rental and logistics services for both public and private sectors through its four operating divisions: Ports Management, Contract Logistics, Equipment Leasing and Power Rental.
This landmark purchase is primarily aimed at meeting the market demand in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia and is part of JTC’s ongoing initiatives for maintaining a strong foothold within the power generation rental market, said the company in a statement.
The new generators, which boast the noise attenuation feature, are design for installations where keeping noise to a minimum is required. Additionally, these are manufactured with the latest and highest safety standards allowing them to be utilised in critical oil and gas applications, it stated.
With its far-reaching logistics network, JTC can rapidly mobilise these generators to any location in the region, it added.
Commenting on the acquisition, CEO Adel Kohari said: "For around 10 years, JTC has been one of the premier suppliers of power rental solutions for Kuwait and the region providing custom and turnkey solutions for commercial, industrial and government clients, with one of the best safety records in the industry."
"We are pleased to receive the new generators which, in addition to JTC’s existing fleet, will improve our capabilities to provide reliable and continuous power to meet the continuous demand of our clients," stated Kohari.
"These generators have been designed specifically for the harsh operating environment of the Middle East rental market and finished to the highest standards. This ground-breaking deal that we’ve completed reflects the rapid development of the market that we operate in," he noted.
"JTC has continuously earned the confidence of clients across all industry sectors by providing services that exceed client expectations and thereby positioning JTC as a major player in the power rental markets in Kuwait and the GCC region," he added.
