SPX Corporation’s Flow Technology business will supply industrial pumps under the ClydeUnion brand to two offshore oil platforms, according to recent contracts that the company estimated at approximately $40 million. SPX’s various engineered products are used in food processing, power transformers, and power plants, and its ClydeUnion pumps are in use by refineries, gas plants, offshore oil platforms, and pipelines around the world.

SPX did not indicate the buyers for the new pumps, nor the installation sites.

The first contract calls for six ClydeUnion pumps, including two large, high-pressure water injection pumps; two water-injection booster pumps; and two diluent pumps.

For the second contract, three ClydeUnion pumps will be supplied, including a single high-pressure water-injection pump and two oil-transfer pumps. 

"These are significant wins for SPX and will serve to further elevate our competitive presence in the global oil and gas industry," stated ClydeUnion president Tony Renzi.
