the operators of NEA compressors and spare parts of other OEM, installation and commissioning of new machines as well as the modernization of compressors, all with the aim of improving efficiency and increase the service life of the compressor plants. The Repair and Coordination Center, newly-equipped with modern machinery, now allows all associated repairs of valves and packings to be carried out onsite. This is an important milestone for the development of NEA Gulf and will contribute to the growth of the already high level of know-how in after market service. The Level A Certificate award from NEA GROUP in July of this year was a good start to doing so. The further training for Level B and C certificates is planned for beginning of the 2010. Then NEA Gulf can offer the complete repair spectrum of the NEA GROUP from Dubai with its own expertise. Emad Tabaza, Managing Director of NEA Gulf, is proud of the performance of his team: "Some years ago a time table was pressed into our hands, but NEA Gulf has grown even faster than expected. I have my team to thank for that, who are always ready to meet our customers with technical authority, ambitious construction solutions and more know-how than is expected!"
