SPX has opened its latest service center in Aberdeen, Scotland offering specialized pump repair to independent oil companies and service providers operating in the North Sea.
Housed in the ABZ Business Park, the Aberdeen Service Centre is well-positioned to support both onshore and offshore operators. The official opening on January 20, 2015 was attended by SPX customers who were given the opportunity to tour the center and meet with key support personnel.
The facility offers complete repair and rapid access to OEM spare parts and testing services. It also provides local support for SPX brands, including ClydeUnion Pumps, Bran+Luebbe and Plenty Mirrlees as well as third-party pump brands. “With our extensive installed base and commitment to offering comprehensive support services to our customers, selected Aberdeen as the site for this new center was an easy and logical decision,” said John Greig, general manager of the new center. “This will be underpinned by our understanding of the North Sea oil and gas market needs and expectations, such as requirement to be FPAL compliant, for example.”
The Aberdeen service team has the capability to update existing pumps to the latest standards and perform equipment evaluations, upgrades, retrofits and re-rates in order to keep up with changing requirements.
“The center 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 and training workshops,” Greig said. “Our intent is that customers are provided with world-class solutions that meet their everyday operational requirements quickly and efficiently.”
