GE has appointed HOERBIGER (Russia) Ltd as an authorised distributor of Waukesha gas engines. The move is part of GE’s strategy to provide Russian oil and gas, power generation and other industrial customers with reliable, more efficient power at or near the point of use.HOERBIGER Russia is well positioned to partner with Waukesha end users active in any power application in Russia. As an authorised distributor, HOERBIGER Russia can improve a Waukesha end user’s operations with a complete life cycle of engine coverage, including installation and startup, upgrades and overhauls with genuine parts and factory warranties.
“With our new GE distributor agreement, we will be able to greatly enhance the customer experience for companies that need power in Russia, ranging from oil and gas power to industrial onsite power production,” said Denis Pestov, Managing Director of HOERBIGER Russia. “Our growing team of skilled Waukesha certified engine technicians around the country and stock of genuine parts inventory help ensure immediate, local customer support, both onsite and in our shops.”
“GE’s distributor agreement with HOERBIGER will play an important role in helping Russia’s industrial and energy leaders meet the country’s increased demands for reliable power that is driven largely by the expanding gas production industries. There also is a growing need to provide power to remote communities and job sites that are not connected to the grid, which is where GE equipment and HOERBIGER’s service excellence will greatly make an impact,” said Ruslan Pakhomov, Region Manager for GE.
Increasingly, companies with power needs in Russia are relying on onsite power systems to accelerate operational efficiency. The gas engine product lines from GE, which include Waukesha gas engines, bring the dual advantage of reliable onsite power as well as off grid solutions. Known for their reliability in even the most rugged conditions, more than 30 000 Waukesha gas engines have been shipped around the world to power mission critical operations in industrial, oil and gas and mechanical drive applications.
The HOERBIGER Russia distributor agreement is one of several new Waukesha distributor agreements that the two companies have recently signed around the world.
