In a significant boost for the localization of 3D printing in the Sultanate of Oman, Intaj Suhar, an Omani advanced manufacturing research facility, has entered a partnership with Immensa, a leading international tech firm, to manufacture spare parts for the country’s pivotal energy industry.

In addition to unlocking opportunities for the localization of this key market, the initiative is expected to contribute to significant cost and time savings for local companies that currently have to source their requirements from expensive overseas suppliers.

Dubai-headquartered Immensa, which operates high-tech manufacturing facilities in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, plans to add Oman to its regional presence. Besides establishing itself as a specialist in the AM industry, it is also a provider of Digital Inventory Solutions (DIS). Leveraging these skills, Immensa takes physical spare parts and dematerializes them into the digital world by creating a digital warehouse of spare parts. In the region, Immensa is billed as the only company that owns and controls the entire digital supply chain encompassing the digitalization and production of spare parts.

Local partner Intaj Suhar is Oman’s only player in the AM space. Conceived as an advanced manufacturing research facility, it launched a manufacturing incubator in 2022 with the objectives to develop technological skills and capabilities; produce prototypes, products, and tools for manufacturing; enhance ICV and promote economic diversification; and foster job creation.

Intaj Suhar is currently made up of three main units, namely, the Plastic Technology and Moulds Manufacturing Centre, the Advanced Manufacturing Centre, and a unit for reverse engineering and machinery. Last week, the center signed agreements with several prominent Omani manufacturing companies to support cooperation in the fields of mold manufacturing, precision components manufacturing, and reverse engineering.

Immensa says its partnership with Intaj Suhar will help replicate its successful business model in Oman. That model centers on the establishment of digital warehouses of the complete spectrum of spares required by the energy industry in Oman. Intaj Suhar’s local capabilities, combined with Immensa’s strengths in digital inventory solutions and AM, will help create a complete solution for Omani companies to procure locally produced parts.

Importantly, the partnership will help boost the In-Country Value (ICV) strategy of the Omani government, which advocates for the growth of a modern and technologically advanced manufacturing base in the country. Local oilfield companies expend tens of millions of dollars every year in procuring parts from overseas suppliers for their operations, elements of which can now be localized through the partnership.
