Flowserve secures $18m in orders for Peruvian refinery upgrade

Flowserve, a provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, has announced that its operations in Rio de Janeiro and Lawrence, Massachusetts, have received orders totalling approximately $18 million (€16.4 million) for pumping systems for the Petroperu Talara refinery in Piura, Peru. The orders were booked in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The project, led by Spanish-based contractor Tecnicas Reunidas, will modernise the Talara refinery and allow it to produce gasoline and diesel fuels that adhere to new Peruvian environmental standards. It is the first major pump installment in the refinery since the 1970s.

Flowserve received orders for horizontal overhung process pumps (OH2 and OH3) and horizontal between-bearing pumps (BB1, BB2 and BB3).

The Flowserve Rio de Janeiro and Lawrence facilities will work together to deliver the equipment to Petroperu. Local support will be provided by the Flowserve Quick Response Center located in Lima, Peru.
