Exploring Sulzer and Ensival Moret's partnership in pumps for the oil and gas industry

AH10 HDIn January 2016, Sulzer completed the acquisition of the Ensival Moret pump business and brand from the Moret Industries Group

Although Sulzer already possessed a comprehensive pump portfolio required to be a market leader, a clear message was communicated from large End Users that they increasingly favour working with trusted suppliers who have the ability and proven operating experience, to cover the maximum number of pumping services on large projects.

This strategy greatly helps to reduce complexity in project management, service support and spare parts inventory and the addition of Ensival Moret, with its complementary portfolio and geographical presence will significantly benefit our customers with a larger selection of pumps, process expertise, and further extended service network.

Within the Oil and Gas industry, the acquisition will allow the integrated Sulzer and Ensival Moret tendering offices to offer full-line supply for many major projects where previously both companies supplied separate, non-competing project packages due to focus on different processes. Following the integration, Sulzer can now provide the optimum technical and commercial offer which simplifies the tender process, technical clarifications, contractual terms and important aftermarket care.

Ensival Moret is one of the world’s leaders in the manufacture of pumps for the polyethylene and polypropylene industries with particular expertise in axial loop reactor and API slurry pumps. Slurry and gas phase process pumps are operating flawlessly all over the world in polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) installations, proven over a period of more than 30 years, where high reliability and high efficiency are essential to overall life-cycle cost and customer satisfaction. 

Further niche, but highly important portfolio enhancements include Molten Sulfur Pumps and Sulfuric Acid Pumps. These services are extremely challenging due to the nature of the pumped fluids. Ensival’s long-term process knowledge and experience in designing and supplying these products is highly valued.

Product development is a continuous process within Sulzer and the teams from both organisations are already working together as part of our global product development organization on the next generation products that will leverage knowledge experience from both companies to provide a superior customer experience.
