GE Starts Downstream Tech Solutions
New unit to include former Cameron recip line
GE has launched a downstream technology solutions (DTS) business to supply equipment and services more efficiently to the US$10 billion refining, petrochemical, industrial and distributed gas segments.
Headquartered in Houston, DTS offers multiple downstream technologies and services including steam turbines, blowers, distributed gas solutions, reciprocating compressors, pumps, valves and distribution systems. The business also provides maintenance services and remote monitoring and diagnostics.
Lorenzo Simonelli, president and CEO of GE Oil & Gas, said, “The new business positions GE to more effectively focus on key downstream industry trends and to better anticipate customer needs.”
In January, GE agreed to acquire Cameron’s reciprocating compression division, which will become a part of DTS. The new division also includes the recently-acquired Salof product lines of small-scale, modular liquefied natural gas plants for the rail, marine, trucking and industrial industries.
