Proserv and hazardous environment specialist JCE Group (UK) Limited have announced a strategic working partnership in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

The agreement will see Proserv supporting JCE Group by offering its products and services whilst also delivering in-country engineering and technical support. Together, the companies aim to further build on their industry-leading standards of quality, service and reliability, and help cultivate a world-class QHSE culture.

Andy Anderson, Proserv’s president for MEA, said: "Proserv has a long and successful track record in the region where our working relationship with JCE Group goes back more than two years. Through recognising that an increasing demand for JCE’s high-quality products fits in with that of Proserv’s suite of technologies and service proposition, establishing a partnership became apparent as the strategic way forward.

"JCE shares our values and business aspirations to deliver a high-value and integrated offering with an unparalleled service, and we look forward to creating new business opportunities together and expanding our footprint across the region in the oil and gas sector.”

Martin Craig at JCE Group, said: "By combining JCE Group’s industry expertise and status as a market leading ATEX & IECEx solutions provider with Proserv’s worldwide reputation as a leading International EnergyServices company, this new partnership allows both JCE & Proserv to offer an unrivalled client-focused service, as well as providing both product and technical expertise which we believe has never been offered in the region before.”

Both companies originally discussed working in partnership during 2013 after members of Proserv’s senior staff were impressed with the capabilities of, one of JCE Group’s product range, the Solar Power Pod. This is believed to be the world’s only Zone 1 system that can use solar energy in remote areas of the globe which lack conventional power and where resources are limited, including oil-wells, pumping stations, production facilities, effluent plants and fuel storage.

This unique product is only one of JCE’s specialities as they design and manufacturehigh quality, internationally approved Ex control systems for applications where both hazardous and non-hazardous conditions exist.

Proserv, which operates worldwide through 29 operating centres based in 11 countries, has a 40-year track record in delivering world-class solutions for the energy industry, particularly in the drilling, production and subsea market sectors.
