    In line with Al Masaood Power Division's expansion plans, we have recently joined forces with Nidec Leroy-Somer to establish a one-stop service workshop in the Gulf region to provide aftersales support for alternators that are manufactured under Leroy-Somer and Kato Engineering brands. The new agreement is an expansion to our existing partnership, combining our efforts and expertise to address the growing demand for world-class aftersales support platforms within the regional electrification market. 

    Commenting on this expanded partnership, Thierry Bennaim, VP Services – Electric Power Generation (Europe & Asia), Nidec Leroy-Somer, said: “Nidec Leroy-Somer partnered with Al Masaood Power in this landmark initiative because of its regional proficiency in the field. With our active technical support, Al Masaood Power is fully capable of delivering enhanced aftersales support services for Leroy-Somer- and Kato-branded alternators in the Gulf area of the Middle East. Together, we will jointly address the region’s needs through our technology-driven capabilities.”

    Al Masaood & Abu Dhabi Customs: A Partnership That Goes Beyond Years

    As a result of our fruitful collaboration with Abu Dhabi’s General Administration of Customs, Al Masaood has been classified as a Strategic Partner under its ‘Authorised Economic Operator’ (AEO) Programme

    This comes in subsequence to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that we had signed with the General Administration of Customs last year, and we now enter phase two of Al Masaood’s existing partnership with Abu Dhabi Customs.

    Group businesses will be able to benefit from added services such as: faster clearance, low or zero-risk score for imports, inspection prioritization, flexible inspection location, and reduced post-clearance audits. Additionally, the new agreement will help facilitate faster and more streamlined import and export of products.

    Apart from establishing stronger coordination with Abu Dhabi’s General Administration of Customs, the agreement will also allow us to explore the possibilities of forming a joint operating committee in free zones and facilitating quicker payment procedures regarding customs duties and clearance operations. 

    I would like to thank the entire team involved for their great efforts to help ensure the success of our partnership. We continue to look forward to exploring new areas of cooperation with the General Administration of Customs in Abu Dhabi as well as other government entities. 

    Sincerely,
    Ahmed Salmeen

    Drive Safely in Fog

    In the past few weeks, the UAE has been seeing foggy mornings and nights with very low visibility. As a reminder for your safety and the safety of the people around you, please ensure you follow these simple steps before and during your journey:

    - Ensure that your fog lights are in proper working condition.

    - Check your front & rear windshields and ensure mirrors are cleaned and polished.

    - Do not drive with your high beam lights as it reduces visibility. Drive with your fog lights on instead.

    - Leave sufficient distance between you and the car in front of you to increase reaction time and braking distance.

    - Keep an eye on the road and use your ears more carefully to judge traffic that you cannot see. Turn off loud music and don’t use your mobile when driving so you can have full concentration when on the road.

    - Avoid excessive lane changes.

    Wishing you all a safe commute
