Burckhardt Compression is further expanding its service expertise and, as the exclusive service provider for SHP pumps from SERO PumpSystems, will take over all service activities in the marine sector.
SERO PumpSystems, based in Meckesheim, Germany, is a technologically leading supplier of side channel pumps for a wide range of applications.
The SHP pumps are used on LPG tankers with dual-fuel engines. Burckhardt Compression has already established a corresponding service infrastructure for its gas compressors in the marine sector with a worldwide network of more than 300 field service staff and representatives in more than 80 countries. Burckhardt Compression said its marine team is therefore very familiar with the special requirements in this field.
“The service cooperation with SERO PumpSystems allows us to further expand our service activities in the dual-fuel marine sector,” said Marcel Pawlicek, CEO Burckhardt Compression. “Working in the marine environment poses not only technical but also operational challenges. Burckhardt Compression has many years of experience in this field as well as a very flexible and competent marine team.”
Beate Zientek-Strietz, Managing Director SERO PumpSystems: “With this cooperation we can focus on our core business, the construction of technologically outstanding pumps, and have found in Burckhardt Compression a strong partner for our service business.”
