Dron & Dickson’s Abu-Dhabi based subsidiary, Totus Energy, has signed a deal with Weidmuller for the provision of regional Ex equipment manufacture and distribution. Totus Energy has been awarded a third party licence from Weidmuller to assemble and supply Hazardous Area junction boxes for the Abu Dhabi market.
The new function adds to Totus Energy’s capabilities in the local Ex market and will enable the company to reduce its clients’ downtime both on- and offshore by supplying the junction boxes into the market quickly.
Stuart Bell, managing director of Totus Energy, said: “This agreement with Weidmuller is a big achievement for Totus Energy, and places us in good standing in the local market. This new function complements our existing electrical and instrumentation (E&I) division as well as our Ex inspection division, enabling us to offer more complete turnkey solutions to the region.
