DUBAI: Aramco’s Abqaiq facility has been added to the World Economic Forum’s Global Lighthouse Network, making it the Saudi company’s third facility in the prestigious list.
The Global Lighthouse status recognizes factories, value chains, and other business models that demonstrate leadership in fourth industrial revolution (4IR) technologies.
“Through pioneering the large-scale use of 4IR solutions, such as Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet of Things (IioT), automation and robotics, we are setting new benchmarks for global industry,” Nabil Al-Nuaim, Aramco’s digital transformation vice president, said.
The Saudi oil producer claims the Abqaiq facility is the largest oil processing plant in the world, providing five percent of global oil supplies.
Other Aramco projects in the list are Uthmaniyah Gas Plant and Khurais oil complex.
