Aberdeen will once again host the Offshore Europe event, from 5th-8th September. At this year’s show, Sulzer will be exhibiting its offering for the repair and maintenance of rotating equipment as well as examples of offshore pumping systems and applicator systems.
Following the success of the event in 2015, Sulzer is highlighting the expertise and processes in place that enable it to deliver the highest standard of maintenance with a minimum of down-time. The company has concentrated a range of resources and facilities in the Aberdeen area to support what has become the centre of excellence for the UK offshore industry.
Ross Barraclough, Regional Operations Director at Sulzer’s North Aberdeen Dyce Service Center, commented: “Sulzer is renowned for delivering high quality, professional maintenance and repair services through its global network of service centres. In terms of support for the offshore industry we have extensive design and manufacturing capabilities that enable us to deliver a comprehensive service.”
Murray Wilson, General Manager as Sulzer’s Aberdeen Ellon Service Center added: “Sulzer offers a fully integrated service and supply business that supports the oil and gas industry, even during the most challenging times for the industry. At times like these, cost effective maintenance and repair services need to be delivered as efficiently as possible to avoid unnecessary down-time.”
As a world leading pump manufacturer, Sulzer also offers state-of-the-art, high performance pumping solutions for oil and gas production including subsea applications. With safety and reliability being key features of pump design, Sulzer pumps fulfil the latest ISO 13709 (API 610) standards and cover a broad range of requirements. The latest innovations have seen high performance technologies being applied to water injection, multi-phase and gas-tolerant pumping solutions - all of which are validated in the test bed located at the Sulzer facility in Leeds.
In addition to pump manufacturing, Sulzer also offers a design and build service for components of legacy equipment that may no longer be supported by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Precision measuring equipment and materials analysis enable Sulzer to reverse engineer parts and even make improvements to the original design.
On the stand, visitors will be able to see a representation from Sulzer’s Applicator Systems division and its MixCoat system. Sulzer has introduced a new professional standard with its 2K coating application systems. Both systems, MixCoat Spray and MixCoat Flex, combined with the 2K cartridge technology and a newly developed spray mixer, allow increased application speeds with reduced down-time. Typical applications for both systems include 2K coating maintenance and repair work in marine, pipeline, shipbuilding, offshore constructions and wind power plants.
