When the high-profile "Winter at Tantora Festival" in Saudi Arabia put out a call for a power supplier, power expert Ghaddar Machinery Co. from Lebanon was ready, willing, and able to meet the challenge. In a record time of three weeks, the company manufactured, delivered, and installed a 19.7 mVA power solution for this annual three-month event, held in the old town of Al-Ula, Medina, in northwestern Saudi Arabia.
The right power solutions in the right place
The Tantora project included 33 generators with John Deere industrial engines providing a total capacity of 7.0 mVA. It was exactly what was needed for this colorful mix of concerts, sporting events, art installations, and restaurants — all kicked off by a breathtaking opening ceremony with light shows and music. Not so surprising from a company that is one of the world's leading suppliers of diesel and gas generator sets and solar power. And with facilities in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia, Ghaddar was in the perfect position to meet the special needs of the event.
Engine reliability and power in the toughest conditions
Ghaddar makes ready-to-run yet highly customizable power solutions between 4 and 4,000 kVA for demanding and remote applications. Since 2019, its portfolio has included 30- to 320-kVA generator sets powered with John Deere industrial engines, as well as complete John Deere–powered power packs for OEMs.
Mohamad Afif Ghaddar, marketing and business development manager, sees a lot of potential and need for John Deere engines in the Middle East. "We choose John Deere because of its extensive, global experience in generator set applications. By adding John Deere engines to our range, we can now meet any power capacity requirement, no matter how demanding the project or operating conditions. The engines' reliability, simple design and ease of maintenance make them perfectly suited to the hot and dusty environments and for remote applications. And their impressive load response allows customers to use a smaller and cost-effective package to power their needs."
Genuine spare parts extend engine service life
The engines and spare parts are directly sourced from John Deere Power Systems. Ghaddar maintains a large stock of industrial engines and genuine John Deere spare parts, which operate, fit, and function perfectly since the design and specifications are controlled by John Deere. Using genuine John Deere spare parts also helps increase the service life of the engines, keeping them as reliable as the day they were purchased.
"JDPS in France is very supportive," continues Ghaddar. "Our engineers are receiving training on engine electronics, technologies, installation, and integration. Now we can pay this forward to our customers and ensure they get the best performance — and lifetime — from their John Deere–powered equipment.
