Sulzer Creates Rotating Equipment Unit

Reorganization seeks to streamline services


Published:

Sulzer has begun a reorganization to  make its Pumps Equipment division more market focused and move the service aspect of the pumps business into a combined Rotating Equipment Services division.

Rotating Equipment Services merges engineering services for large turbines, compressors, motors and generators, previously provided by Sulzer Turbo Services, with the services for pumps provided prior to the restructure by Sulzer Pumps. The division will have 100 service locations worldwide.

Sulzer also created a water-related business unit within the Pumps Equipment division. “The Water business unit is the first step to concentrate the company’s activities in three key markets -- oil and gas, power and water. Integrating all services for rotating equipment, for example, means that a customer operating a power plant can turn to Sulzer for servicing, maintenance and repair of a turbine, plus the associated generator and ancillary power transmission equipment.”

The third division in the new business structure is Chemtech, which will continue to focus on static separation and mixing technologies and will be largely unchanged.
