FMC Technologies, Sulzer Pumps Ink Deal for Subsea Industry

Sulzer Pumps Ltd. and FMC Technologies, Inc. have signed a long-term and exclusive collaboration agreement, which addresses the supply of pumps for subsea applications and the further development of pumping technology of Sulzer Pumps, reported FMC in a press release.

This partnership will meet the needs of FMC Technologies and the subsea exploration and production industry. Both companies aim to further leverage their collaboration on technology focusing on pumps from Sulzer Pumps, and subsea systems and advanced permanent magnet motor technology from FMC, reported the company.

"The signing of this long-term and exclusive collaboration agreement is a natural progression of the long-standing cooperation already in place between Sulzer Pumps and FMC Technologies," said Tore Halverson, senior vice president of Subsea Technologies, in a statement.

"We look forward to providing the subsea market and customers with best-in-class pumping technology for many years to come," added Kim Jackson, divisional president of Sulzer Pumps.

Sulzer, an establishment dating back to 1834, and FMC have developed, built and qualified a new, high-speed helicon-axial multiphase subsea boosting unit based on Sulzer Pumps' topside pump designs. The pump is driven by a permanent magnet motor that provides higher speeds, power and efficiency compared to conventional induction motors.
