By Keefe Borden05 April 2022
Sulzer is opening a new state-of-the-art service center in Vadodara, Gujarat, India. The facility will offer repairs, upgrades, retrofits and parts manufacturing for a wide range of rotating equipment including pumps, steam turbines, compressors and expanders, the company announced.
The modern engineering facilities cover 10’500 sq ft (975 sq m) and have been designed to deliver fast and efficient workflows, incorporating lean principles to ensure an effective service for customers. The new service center has the capability to deliver leading maintenance solutions for a variety of equipment, regardless of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), Sulzer said.
Sulzer has been delivering manufacturing and maintenance services in India for more than 30 years. The company introduced high-energy pumps to the industrial sector. This expertise and experience also provides an excellent foundation for overhauling and repairing these vital assets to improve reliability and performance, while also potentially reducing their carbon footprint with energy savings, Sulzer said.
The new team at Vadodara comprises a mixture of local talent and select engineers from the company’s national headquarters in Navi Mumbai with over 30 years’ experience in delivering maintenance services to customers from around the world. Together, these facilities form an important part of Sulzer’s global manufacturing and maintenance network.
As such, the team in Vadodara has access to the global engineering capabilities within the company, including Venlo in the Netherlands and Indonesia, both of which have vast experience and expertise in turbomachinery repairs and upgrades. Sulzer has also invested in its parts manufacturing capabilities at Vadodara with cutting-edge equipment, such as an advanced CNC 4-axis turnmill machine, vertical & horizontal balancing machines, as well as the necessary expertise in design and materials engineering.
Sulzer is an industrial engineering and manufacturing company based in Winterthur, Switzerland.
