DUBAI: British industrial software company Aveva is setting up its “largest digital hub” in Saudi Arabia, following its initial agreement with Aramco, Arab News reported.

The hub will have research and development capabilities, the company said in a statement, and will support its operations across the Middle East.

London-listed Aveva has signed a memorandum of agreement with Aramco to develop various technologies, including artificial, machine learning, and data management.

The partnership will help Aramco in its development and implementation of blue hydrogen and decarbonisation facilities in the kingdom, the statement said.

It will deploy predictive analytics technology across Aramco’s operating facilities.

“Digital technologies have the potential to accelerate the transformation of the industrial sector and drive it towards more efficient and sustainable operations,” Ahmad Al-Sa’adi, senior vice president of technical services in Aramco said.
