The company has unveiled its plan to make sustainability the driving force behind its product development and lifecycle services following the recent divestment of its filtration business.
“We have been helping customers to improve efficiency and reduce emissions since our inception in 2020, but we are at an important inflection point in the global fight against climate change and as a company we need to recognise the challenges this raises for our customers and our own operations,” says Jose Larios, president and CEO of Celeros Flow Technology.
The company’s new mission defines how its flow control solutions can support customers’ sustainability goals by reducing their carbon emissions and environmental impacts.
“We are committed to engineering a more sustainable future by developing products for emerging applications in carbon capture and storage, new nuclear and renewable energy, while continuing to support existing customers in conventional power and energy to decarbonize their operations,” says Larios. “Together, we can create a safer, more resilient and cleaner energy future.”
New energy, nuclear and defence are all targeted areas of growth for Celeros Flow Technology, but the company remains committed to supporting all its customers across the energy spectrum.
Celeros Flow Technology predicts that demand for its lifecycle services will grow as the world seeks to decarbonize existing industrial activities.
“The energy transition will take time to deliver, and we cannot ignore the role that oil and gas continues to play in the global economy,” says Larios. “We therefore need to focus on making these operations as sustainable as possible. Modernizing existing assets to minimize emissions and reduce energy consumption is key.”
In line with its new mission, Celeros Flow Technology has just made a significant investment in a nuclear testing facility in France, which provides a unique test-bed for developing safety-critical pumps for the next generation of EPR2 nuclear reactors. The company’s flagship global pumps facility in Glasgow, Scotland, is being modernized including environmental and energy upgrades, to facilitate the manufacture of critical pumps that support national energy security and sustainability policies. The Valves business has recently introduced the Green Valve Packing System, designed to dramatically reduce fugitive emissions, and its signature Bandlock2 Closures are now hydrogen-ready.
Celeros Flow Technology has set a goal to make its own operations carbon neutral by 2030, and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
