Flowserve Maintaining Dow Equipment
Thursday, October 04, 2012
Flowserve Corp. received a five-year contract from Dow Benelux to handle maintenance on its rotating equipment and general machining. Flowserve will initially open an on-site quick response center (QRC) at Dow’s Terneuzen, Netherlands, facility.
The QRC will employ 35 people and be designed to handle all rotating equipment maintenance for the Terneuzen facility. Within three years, Flowserve plans to relocate this QRC and become part of Maintenance Valuepark Terneuzen, a regional center where Dow Benelux and other companies can obtain services focused on the maintenance functions of the process industry.
The Valuepark is an initiative of several maintenance service-providing companies, educational institutions and the government to establish a maintenance and education center.
Flowserve has been a Dow global provider for several years in the supply and maintenance of pumps, mechanical seals and valves. Flowserve also plans to identify and help implement reliability, energy and environmental improvements in Dow's equipment operations.
