Flowserve awarded US$18mn pump order for refinery upgrade in Peru

More than seven types of Flowserve pumps will be installed at the Petroperú Talara refinery, including horizontal overhung process pumps (OH2 and OH3) and horizontal between-bearing pumps (BB1, BB2 and BB3).

The project, led by Spanish contractor Técnicas Reunidas, will upgrade the Talara refinery and allow it to produce gasoline and diesel fuels while meeting Peru’s new environmental standards. This is the first major pump instalment at the refinery since the 1970s.

The Flowserve Rio de Janeiro and Lawrence facilities will work together to deliver the pump equipment to Petroperú. Local support will be provided by the Flowserve Quick Response Center in Lima, Peru.
