Sulzer increases maintenance support for Colombia

Sulzer has strengthened its support network for rotating equipment in Colombia. Its Bogota service centre, opened in 2012, is now equipped to repair and maintain all makes of pumps, compressors and steam turbines up to 10 MW.

In recognition of the fact that modern industrial processes can ill afford unplanned downtime, the company is working with its customers to develop a maintenance schedule that aims to minimise lost production time. When an unforeseen breakdown occurs Sulzer aims to provide professional field service teams that can respond quickly.

Sulzer’s field service engineers are also supported by the remanufacturing facilities within the global Sulzer network.

Carlos Narvaez, General Manager at Sulzer Pumps Colombia, commented: “The aftermarket support of rotating equipment needs to be of the highest standard in order to ensure the availability and reliability of the equipment. Ideally, all of the necessary work is completed during planned shutdown periods, and this requires precise planning and efficient execution to deliver the project on time.”

The service centre in Bogota provides access to all of the repair and remanufacturing facilities in the Sulzer network. This includes precision steam turbine repairs and full-scale refurbishment of generators and high-voltage motors.
