Since our formation, Al Thuraya Consultancy has supported power generation and distribution projects in challenging and post-conflict environments. We ensure business continuity of power generation facilities and supply chains by planning and managing the transportation of mission critical and slow moving equipment through hostile regions without loss; by enabling the building of power stations and distribution networks; and by helping our clients operate safely and efficiently no matter where they are in the world.


The telecoms sector is at the forefront of growth among many of the world’s developing nations, supporting business, finance and consumers to connect as never before. As new technologies emerge and become more widespread, telecoms firms require a flexible partner with global reach to ensure the safe and effective operation of personnel and assets in frontier and developing markets. Al Thuraya Consultancy works with some of the world’s largest telecommunications and telecoms equipment companies, providing threat advisory, security risk management and on-the-ground protective services to ensure continuity of operations in adverse climates. Recent projects include dedicated journey management solutions to clients operating in Libya in support of a regional connectivity development program.


Rail remains a critical component of many nations’ transportation infrastructure, with new routes across Africa, Asia and the Middle East acting offering greater connectivity for both business and consumer groups. As the sector expands within both new and historic markets, Al Thuraya Consultancy risk consultants and security practitioners provide industry-leading solutions to enable growth to continue unchecked. Integrated consultancy services begin with the project design and investment stage and continue to land development, construction and asset mobilization. Recent projects include the threat and risk evaluation of the extension of a major metro line in the Egypt, providing an in-depth security audit into the preparedness and threat environment for railway assets and passengers.


As gateways of international trade and transportation, nations survive and compete in the globalized economy via their airports. In post-conflict environments, these entities are high-impact targets for attack, putting the security of personnel and resources at greater risk. Al Thuraya Consultancy aviation security, protective services, technical systems and workforce management and training solutions protect international airports and support the safe movement of personnel, foreign trade and economic development. We help clients balance the implementation of adequate safety and security requirements with the needs of the travelling public, transport providers, on-site workforces and the costs of implementing the required infrastructure. The scale of our company combined with our knowledge, experience and capability make us the strategic partner of choice for many in the aviation industry. A recent project in North Africa helped strengthen the technical skills and capacity of 1,000 personnel to international aviation security standards.
