Sulzer has opened a new service centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia which will provide maintenance and repair services for all types of pumps. The Sulzer Saudi Pump Company’s (SSPC) manufacturing facility in Saudi Arabia has supplied equipment to the oil and gas, power generation and water sectors. Following this, Sulzer has invested in a purpose-built service centre to support customers with after-market services including reverse engineering, rerates, spare parts management and maintenance contracts.
The service centre is equipped with new machinery, including lathes, milling machines, balancing equipment, hydraulic presses and 20-tonne overhead cranes. Located on the same site as the pump manufacturing facility, the service centre can also take advantage of the larger CNC machine tools, welding equipment and testing facilities next door.
Saeed Al Matar, Head of Pump Services at SSPC explains: “Sulzer also offers a retrofit service that enables customers to work with pump designers and optimize the performance of their equipment. For situations where production processes change, energy consumption needs to be reduced or performance enhanced, Sulzer can implement design changes.”
In addition to the benefits available in the workshop, Sulzer also provides field services using equipped vehicles to deliver on-site installation, fault finding and maintenance. The Riyadh Service Centre has the support of Sulzer’s global network of locations and experts, which can deliver a comprehensive range of services to all makes of rotating equipment.
