RIYADH: Dayim Equipment Rental Co. has partnered with The Red Sea Development Co. to build an on-site, carbon neutral operations hub and provide managed services for The Red Sea Project and AMAALA.
DER Regional General Manager Andy Carter said the company is constructing an office training and workshop complex on the allocated 10,000 square meters of space.
TRSDC stated on a LinkedIn post that DER’s operational hub would be one of the most carbon neutral fulfillment centers in the Gulf Cooperation Council, leveraging the company’s market-leading sustainable product offerings.
We are managing the site, carrying out inspections and working directly with subcontractors.

The facility will be powered by lithium-powered generators and solar panels. Additionally, a diesel generator will provide backup only if the batteries need recharging or there is not enough sunlight, pointed out Carter.
In a social media post, TRSDC said: “Leveraging Dayim’s innovative green solutions, this hub will be one of the most carbon neutral of its kind and is part of our commitment to maximize the efficiency of our construction process.”
The post further said: “In addition to providing the required equipment to support our projects, Dayim will provide on-site training, testing and inspection for our staff and contractors.”
Carter noted that DER has an ISO 14001:2015 certification, which means it meets the requirements for an environmental management system that can improve an organization’s environmental performance.
DER is also certified with the quality management system ISO 9001 and the occupational safety and health standard ISO 45001.
As one of the first equipment rental companies in the Kingdom, DER offers green and sustainable products such as solar lighting, lithium batteries, gas generators, and a 100 percent recyclable washing facility.
“We are managing the site, carrying out inspections and working directly with subcontractors,” Carter said.
DER will manage all on-site logistics onshore and offshore, allowing TRSDC to focus on its core business. Among its managed services, the company tests and inspects all contractor’s equipment as it enters the project to ensure it is safe, leak-free, and fit for purpose, Carter added.
“Our carbon neutral operational hub offers TRSDC a full-service plant, machinery and vehicle solution, which matches the developer’s sustainability ethos,” Rida Said, executive chairman with Dayim Holdings Rida said.
