Dubai-based Tristar Group has won a five-year contract, valued at US$8 million, with Linde Global Helium. As a result, Tristar will provide transport for helium cargoes across the GCC using a specially designed vehicle fleet, with advanced built-in safety features, to ensure the safe movement and delivery of Linde’s cryogenic containers. Linde operates the largest fleet of cryogenic bulk helium containers in the world and has a state-of-the-art facility in Dubai for the staging and maintenance of its global fleet.
Tristar has had a close working relationship with Linde Global since 2006. Earlier this year, Tristar’s joint venture in Saudi Arabia, United Stars, signed a five-year contract with Linde-Sigas, to transport industrial and medical gases to Linde-Sigas clients across the Kingdom from five strategically located depots in Dammam, Jeddah, Riyadh, Jubail and Yanbu.
