GE Expands Hungary Oil & Gas Facility

Plant will provide UCPs for oil and gas applications


Published:

GE has opened its newly expanded oil and gas facility in Fót, Hungary. The manufacturing plant has been substantially enlarged with the addition of a new 86111 sq. ft. (8000 m2) manufacturing facility and a 32292 sq. ft. (3000 m2) office building.

The manufacturing base will provide central unit control panels (UCPs) for pipelines, LNG production facilities and other oil and gas applications. The increased capacity adds more than 100 jobs, including 40 engineering positions, an employment increase of more than 80%, the company said.

UCPs are flexible control systems for multiple applications that incorporate a variety of sub systems such as safe operation of machinery, vibrations monitoring, control of unit speed and load, auxiliaries systems and overall plant control. Panels are designed to enable local or remote operations, GE said.

Bringing production of these critical control panels to Fót, Hungary, supports GE’s efforts to align its production to new customer needs and to extend its technology capability locally and globally, the company said.
