A strategic partnership between Norway’s PG Flow Solutions and Germany’s Hermetic-Pumpen GmbH has secured its first contract to deliver two hermetically sealed pumps to a newbuild LNG facility.

“This contract, which involves pumping lean amine, underlines canned pump solutions’ potential within fast-growing green energy industries,” said Erland Haugan, manager of PG Flow Solutions’ sales department. “The market is moving towards more green energy in which both pumping of CO2 as well as auxiliary pump systems for hydrogen production come into play as key factors. Here, a canned pump solution is the technically most preferred solution.”

Under the partnership, PG Flow Solutions will integrate Hermetic-Pumpen’s canned pumps into its market offering.

“The partnership with Hermetic-Pumpen is our response to increased customer demand for unmanned operations, lower lifecycle operating costs and green energy pump solutions,” explained Steve Paulsen, CEO of PG Flow Solutions.

“The operational benefits of hermetic pumps are obvious. We are already prequalified to apply the technology on unmanned oil and gas platforms on the Norwegian continental shelf,” added Haugan.
