Rolls-Royce plc today increased its growing presence in the Middle East, where it is playing an important role in the development of the region across all the Group’s business sectors, with orders from Oman Air for Trent 700s and from Dubai Petroleum for Avon 200 industrial engines.
Dubai Petroleum is upgrading a further six industrial Avon gas generators, following a previous order for four conversions, which have already been shipped back to Dubai. Half of its current Avon fleet operating on platforms in the Fateh offshore gas field will now be to the new Avon 200 standard.
