  • Companies from the Middle East, North Africa and other parts of the world honored with annual Supplier Partnership Award in the areas of safety, quality, on-time delivery, competitiveness, and overall partnership

Dubai, UAE (May 6, 2024)GE Vernova’s Gas Power business (NYSE: GEV) held the annual regional ‘Power Supplier Partnership Summit’ in Dubai, UAE, convening over 200 representatives from up to 135 organizations in person and virtually from across Europe, Middle East, Africa, and beyond.

The event featured insightful presentations and case studies, interactive discussions, and one-on-one meetings among senior representatives from GE Vernova and participating organizations. The themes covered revolved around safety, quality, power sector trends, challenges and opportunities, ideas on how to bridge gaps in the supply chain as various actors seek to decarbonize the region’s energy system while meeting growing demand, and more.

GE Vernova recognized select organizations with ‘Supplier Partnership Awards’ at the Summit for excellence in the areas of safety, quality, on-time delivery, competitiveness, and overall partnership. Awards were given to suppliers from various countries, including Algeria, Iraq, Libya and the UAE.

Joseph Anis, President and CEO of GE Vernova’s Gas Power business in Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA), said, “As organizations and governments look to accelerate the energy sector’s transition to net zero, we recognize that no one company or actor can deliver the world’s growing needs for more reliable, affordable, and sustainable power alone. Strengthening our vast network of diverse suppliers is a critical part of our strategy to maintain operational agility and help deliver the high quality solutions that our customers are looking for reliably and on time. By organizing events such as this annual summit, we contribute towards nurturing the regional supply chain and driving forward national industrialization and economic diversification goals to create greater shared value in the power sector.”
