Chairman’s message
Welcome to the SAS Systems Engineering 2012 Year in Review. It’s an honor to share our
accomplishments with you.
In the course of 2012, SAS focused on two overarching goals: first, to further strengthen its human
capital, through continued trainings in advanced engineering and management; and second, to
further broaden its projects portfolio, by winning a multitude of prestigious contracts.
Both goals yielded unprecedented results in 2012, attesting to not only the outstanding teamwork of
our engineers, project managers, and sales specialists, but also our uncompromising commitment
to remain at the forefront of technological innovation.
Yet perhaps the one corporate aspect of which I continue to be most proud is the unrivaled quality
of service provided by all of our departments and branches, whether in terms of sales, consultation,
engineering, or maintenance and warranty backup.
Indeed, our dedication to service, to optimal client satisfaction, is inseparable from our quest for
engineering excellence, fueling our enthusiasm to grow well into the future as a robust, multispecialty corporation.
I thank all of our clients for their trust in our work, and very much look forward to serving you in
2013 and beyond.

General Manager’s message
For the General Manager of a company such as SAS, nothing is more gratifying than the finely
tuned operation of teams, products, systems, and services.
Throughout 2012, SAS experienced significant growth, in terms of project volume and scale alike,
and I believe the key reason for this is that we never stop striving to make our work even better.
Consider, for instance, our major IT upgrades in 2012. As cyber security and digital efficiency
remain top priorities for SAS, we implemented a complete overhaul of our IT systems, in line with
the exacting demands of operational management and client services.
Still, computers and machinery, no matter how sophisticated, are only a part of the equation,
because the ultimate strength of a corporation rests in its human capital: its pool of skills,
knowledge, and experience; its cohesion; and the level of client support it offers, both before and
after a contract has been signed.
With these in mind, we provided our managers with a series of advanced trainings in 2012, helping
enhance their skills as team leaders and project administrators.
As notably, 2012 has been a year of refining our interface with our growing client base, partners,
and prospective clients. In this respect, we carried out an extensive revamp of our website (sas-se.
com), making it more dynamic and user-friendly, and added new partners to our roster of globally
renowned suppliers and manufacturers.
Our achievements in 2012 symbolize our abiding pledge to surpass expectations, our dedication
to flawless quality and consummate professionalism, and, ultimately, our irreducible passion for
advanced engineering.

Editor’s note
In our line of work, nothing is more gratifying than to see human talent in action. Extraordinary
talent. Talent that goes beyond expectations to create something truly magnificent.
This, before anything else, is what I recall from 2012, as I look back on the work carried out
collectively by the dedicated engineers, executives, and sales specialists of SAS Systems
Engineering.
Two thousand and twelve was the year when our Fire Protection Department began to carry out one
of the most impressive projects in the history of our company: the installation of firefighting and fire
alarm systems at all substations of the internationally acclaimed Haramain High Speed Railway.
Equally impressive were the firefighting systems projects at the Madinah Oberoi Hotel, the Taiba
Armas Hotel, and scores of other sites, implemented by our branches in Madinah and Al Khobar.
The year 2012 saw the addition of several high-profile institutions which now feature leading-edge
automation and building management systems designed and installed by SAS. They include the
Qurayyah Power Plant and the Ministry of Interior Integrated Facilities, as well as the King Abdullah
Waqf Hotels chain, which had commissioned our Riyadh branch for the project.
Security and communications were two other spheres where our teams excelled like never before.
Take, for example, the major upgrade of security systems at the Tasnee Plant, which was carried
out by our Jubail branch. Or the installation of next-generation Time and Attendance systems at the
Saudi Airlines Ground Services Terminals, and the installation of fully integrated public address and
fire alarm systems at the King Abdulaziz International Airport.
I am filled with a great sense of pride when I think that these accomplishments are only a tiny
sample of the complex, extensive projects realized in 2012 by SAS. In the following pages, it is
our distinct honor to present to you the full spectrum of projects implemented by the various SAS
departments and branches throughout 2012.
Today, as we look forward to continue providing our clients with state-of-the-art technologies and
top-notch service, in 2013 and beyond, I would like to express my gratitude to a very special
colleague, SAS General Manager Hovig Kurkjian. I admire Mr. Kurkjian for not only leading SAS and
having expanded it into one of Saudi Arabia’s highest-ranked engineering companies, but also for
his wisdom, consummate professionalism, and continued mentorship — qualities which make
working for SAS all the more worthwhile.

by the High Commission of Industrial Security.
Another milestone was achieved when the Al Khobar team won a
contract to train 40 Saudi Aramco technicians in the utilization of
KABA security barriers and turnstiles.
Currently our Al Khobar engineers are under contract with the Ministry
of Health, in charge of maintaining complex UPS systems at ten
regional hospitals.
The Al Khobar branch was also awarded new contracts for the
expansion of KABA time attendance systems at the Saline Water
Conversion Corporation’s (SWCC) Riyadh plant and several sites
throughout the eastern region. SAS has already commissioned and
handed over to SWCC a state-of-the-art KABA time attendance
network, installed at the entirety of the corporation’s sites in the
eastern and central regions.
Two thousand and twelve was an equally significant year for the Fire
Protection Department of the SAS Al Khobar branch, as it performed
work on a number of prestigious projects, with clients such as the
Saudi Electricity Company.
The various scopes of these projects comprised the installation of
advanced fire protection networks including foam, FM-200, CO2,
sprinkler, Novec 1230, and deluge systems as well as required pumps
and compressor equipment, all linked with main fire alarm systems
through Intelligent Networks.
Our Al Khobar Fire team welcomed 2013 with an unprecedented
portfolio, having won five major fire detection and suppression
systems projects for the following substations:
ŠŠ 115 kV Dye Substation;
ŠŠ 115 kV Hafr Substation;
ŠŠ 132 kV Arar Substation;
ŠŠ 132 kV Muzamia Substation;
ŠŠ 132 kV Al Markaz Substation.

Jubail branch
Ever since its establishment in 2009, the SAS Jubail branch has fast grown to become one of
eastern Saudi Arabia’s top-ranked providers of integrated security and fire protection systems.
With its pool of exceptional engineering talents and specializing in cutting-edge products and
systems, our Jubail Security and Fire teams have made 2012 yet another year of distinguished
accomplishments.
The teams executed several challenging projects
in 2012, with work commissioned by some of
Saudi Arabia’s most prestigious petrochemical
corporations, including Tasnee, Sipchem, and
Advance Petrochemical Company (APC), as well as
contractors like Rotary and Sarco.
The most extensive project completed by the
Security team was a major upgrade of security
systems at the Tasnee plant in Jubail. The initiative
comprised the supply, installation, testing, and
commissioning of the latest in integrated hardware
and software technologies.
Other major projects included the installation of
an integrated access control system as well as
maintenance of security systems for Sipchem; a
CCTV-systems upgrade for the same company; and
maintenance of security systems for APC, Sipchem,
and Tasnee. Concurrently, fire protection systems
were completed at the Satrop site, as commissioned
by Rotary and Sarco.
Today our Jubail security engineers and technicians
continue to implement a number of far-reaching
projects, among them the installation of integrated
security systems for the Sipchem EVA Plant, the
Tasnee AA Plant, and Commercial Port; as well
as installation of CCTV systems at the Tasnee
Plant Logistics Area, among others. Our Fire team
also continues to execute several major projects,
including those at AMJ, Sipchem, and Satrop sites.
As SAS Systems Engineering as a whole, our
Jubail branch offered the full spectrum of leading
security and fire products in 2012, including USand European-made access control, AV, CCTV, UPS,
and fire protection systems as well as road blockers, turnstiles, and barriers. The most noteworthy
technology applied by our Jubail engineers was the state-of-the-art Remsdaq Access Control C-5
Enterprise Edition System, which was installed for the first time in Saudi Arabia, at the Sipchem
Plant in Jubail.
Sales executives and engineers from the Jubail branch also helped showcase SAS products and
services on an international level, by participating in the renowned Saudi Safety and Security
Exhibition, held in Dammam in March 2012.
24
Madinah branch
In 2012, the SAS Madinah branch performed work on a number of major projects throughout the
Madinah area, with clients ranging from several landmark hotels, Tacoma, and Saudi Oger to the
Custodian of the Holy Mosques.
Projects completed by the Fire Protection team of the Madinah branch included some of the city’s
most prominent tourist destinations, namely the Taiba Armas Hotel, the Madinah Oberoi Hotel, and
the Elaf Taiba Hotel.
For the Taiba Armas and the Madinah Oberoi, the team executed
the design, supply, testing, and commissioning of leading-edge
Kidde firefighting systems. For the Elaf Taiba, the team carried out
a powerful fire protection upgrade, installing a state-of-the-art
Notifier alarm system.
Ongoing projects in 2012 encompassed work in the spheres of
building management systems and fire protection alike, with
distinguished clients including Al Riassa, Aswaq al Haram, and
the hotels Anwar al Madinah Movenpick, Madinah Oberoi, Taiba,
Safir, and Karam al Hejaz.
Our work for these clients included, variously, the full scope
of new BMS, firefighting, and fire alarm systems, as well as
the maintenance of complex networks which comprised fire
protection, BMS, CCMS, and billing systems.
The largest and most extensive enterprise on which the SAS
Madinah branch performed work in 2012 was the King Abdullah
Waqf project. Consisting of two five-star hotels, three four-star
hotels, and a sizeable common mall, it is currently considered to
be one of Saudi Arabia’s most prestigious automation projects.
The latest BMS technologies being designed, supplied, tested,
and commissioned by our engineers at the King Abdullah Waqf
sites include more than 50 DDC panels, which serve to control
and monitor over 8,000 I/O points, as well as 4,500 fan coil units,
all of which will be connected to each site’s automation system.
For our Madinah teams, 2012 was also marked by the continued
acquisition of fresh professional knowledge and skills.
Thus our personnel participated in specialized NFPA, Kidde, and
Notifier seminars and trainings, as well as a far-reaching series of
management trainings conducted by INNESSKIRK Global.
25
Recognition and awards
In 2012, during the annual Lenel Value Added Resellers (VAR) gala dinner, held at the Fairmont
Hotel in Dubai, SAS Systems Engineering was honored with Lenel’s prestigious Certificate of
Excellence. As an Authorized VAR of Lenel’s OnGuard security platform, SAS was recognized for its
extraordinary capabilities in systems integration.
Another distinguished recognition was bestowed by one of our most valued partners, Kidde Fire
Systems, which named SAS Systems Engineering “Distributor of the Year 2011” for the Middle
East region.
SAS garnered a number of additional awards throughout 2012.
Among them was a Letter of Appreciation from Alstom, which praised SAS Close-out Manager
Mustafa Shareef for the seamless execution of the Shoaiba Power Plant Stage III project, including
installation, commissioning, and integration.
A similar recognition was received from Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction. In an Award
Certificate issued to SAS Site Manager Mohammed Nadeem, Doosan praised him for the successful
implementation of the Rabigh Power Plant No. 2 project, and for achieving “20 million safe man
hours with zero accident.”

Pioneering technologies
Advanced technologies and a highly trained technical corps are hallmarks of the continued success
of SAS Systems Engineering.
Throughout 2012, we offered the very latest technologies from Europe, the US, and elsewhere,
supplying our clients with products from venerable manufacturers such as Siemens, Johnson
Controls, Lenel, GE, Chemguard, Kidde, Notifier, Retrotec, UTC, Viking, Marioff, Spectrex, Geutebruck,
and many others.
As importantly, our teams received extensive training and
certification in the various technologies we feature, acquiring the
necessary skills and knowledge for the optimal application of
cutting-edge products and systems.
In Automation: In 2012, we began to use the KNX technology,
applying it to the lighting and HVAC controls of two major projects.
KNX is an open, standardized, OSI-based network communication
protocol for intelligent buildings, designed to be independent of any
particular hardware platform.
Other significant automation systems we offered included the
Siemens Desigo Insight Version 5 as well as the EIB Lighting Control
System. SAS was the first company to introduce the EIB system in
Saudi Arabia, working closely with Siemens. One of today’s most
sophisticated green technologies, the EIB system is poised to
revolutionize the building automation field.
In Fire Protection: Our Fire Protection Department continued
to apply new technologies in a broad range of prestigious projects, including the King Abdulaziz
International Airport. At this site, our teams installed a complete fire protection solution, consisting
of a microprocessor-based, intelligent analogue addressable, and network-integrated system. In
addition, the SAS-designed fire alarm and detection system includes all necessary interfaces with
other systems and equipment throughout the airport.
Our Fire Protection Department enhanced its capabilities in terms of a broad range of complex
27
projects by also adopting two far-reaching products: Gravograph Engravers as well as Retrotec’s
Enclosure Integrity Testing System.
In Security and Communications: In 2012, for the first time in Saudi Arabia, we applied the
Remsdaq C-5 Enterprise Edition System, which is a state-of-the-art access control network.
Another significant product we offered was the Honeywell Variodyn D1 public address and voice
alarm system, the first-ever digital system of its kind. Variodyn D1 provides outstanding flexibility
and seamless integration with most fire alarm systems.
Rounding out our noteworthy security offerings was a leading-edge network of Time and Attendance
systems which we installed throughout the Saudi Airlines Ground Services Terminals. These fully
integrated systems, based on powerful biometric identification technology, featured fingerprint
scanners by Interflex.
