Sulzer has acquired the Scottish aero-derivative gas turbine service provider Alba Power.
Aberdeen-headquartered Alba Power employs 80 people and had sales of £34 million in 2018. The company also has facilities in Houston, USA and Ontario, Canada.
With the acquisition of Alba Power, Sulzer diversifies its gas turbine service business into distributed power and offshore as well as marine applications. Sulzer says there are numerous cross-selling synergies with its existing pump, motor, generator and turbo service customers.
“Alba Power strongly complements our existing service offering in gas turbines globally, diversifying our gas turbine service portfolio both into smaller gas turbines and distributed power,” said Daniel Bischofberger, president of Sulzer’s Rotating Equipment Services.
“Alba will benefit from our global sales and service centre footprint and technical expertise required for servicing heavy industrial gas turbines. They have an outstanding reputation with their customers and we are very happy to welcome them to the Sulzer team.”
