SPX, a leading supplier of flow technology solutions, announces the opening of its new Aberdeen Service Centre, the latest addition to its global aftermarket service network.
The Centre will provide local specialised pump repair services to independent oil companies and service providers in the North Sea oil and gas sector.
Located in the ABZ Business Park, off Dyce Drive in Aberdeen, the Service Centre is well positioned to support operators both onshore and offshore.
It officially opened during an in-house reception on Tuesday, January 20, which was attended by a number of customers who were given the opportunity to tour the new facility and meet with key support personnel.
The Centre will offer complete repair and quick access to OEM spare parts and testing services for operators along with providing local support for prominent SPX brands which include ClydeUnion Pumps, Bran + Luebbe and Plenty Mirrlees as well as third-party pump brands.
John Greig, general manager of the Service Centre, said: “With our extensive installed base and commitment to offering comprehensive support services to our customers, selecting Aberdeen as the site for this new centre was an easy and logical decision.
“This will be underpinned by our understanding of the North Sea oil and gas market needs and expectations, such the requirement to be FPAL compliant for example.
“This Centre is able to provide tailored OEM engineered solutions that enhance pump reliability and performance, which will be complimented by access to OEM spare parts, technical services, training and workshops. Our intent is that customers are provided with world-class solutions that meet their everyday operational requirements quickly and efficiently.
He added: “Although SPX is a global organisation, the Centre allows us to make quick and clear decisions at a local level, and easily access support from extensive SPX resources within the United Kingdom and across the world.”
The team has the capability to update existing pumps to the latest standards and perform equipment evaluations, upgrades, retrofits, and re-rates, to keep up with changing process requirements.
The Aberdeen team would welcome any requests from customers who would be interested in seeing the facility and understanding its capability.
