GE signs licensing agreement with BHEL of India

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

GE has signed a 10 year licensing agreement with Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) of India.

According to the agreement, signed through GE Oil & Gas’ Italian entity Nuovo Pignone, GE’s range of high performance, high efficiency centrifugal compressors will be manufactured under licence at BHEL’s production site in Hyderabad, India, for sale in India and in other South Asian territories.

The technical scope of the licensing agreement provides for the licensing of GE’s advanced range of centrifugal compressors, specifically several models of horizontally and vertically split, pipeline and integrally gear compressors.

Based on a previous licensing agreement in place with GE Energy since 1986, BHEL is already partnering on the manufacturing and sale of GE gas turbines for power and water applications. Today’s agreement also builds on a successful licensing arrangement for similar units held between Nuovo Pignone and BHEL from 1971 to 1992.
