Workshop

The SPX FLOW service centre in Southern Iraq, a joint venture (JV) between SPX FLOW and WTE Wajdi Group, is dedicated to the service of all rotating and static equipment for oil and gas, industrial and power customers in Iraq. The centre, strategically located in Basrah Provence, opened six months ago and is proving to be a remarkable success. Customers can see the excellent facilities offered by visiting the centre on an open day scheduled for 2nd May 2018.

The JV operates under the name of “SPX FLOW & WTE Energy Industrial Services FZCO” with offices in Dubai and local operations and a subsidiary entity based in North Rumalia Oil Field. Using WTE’s well-established presence in the area and its experience and knowledge of the Iraqi market, the facility is well equipped and positioned to expand the already large installed base of equipment from the SPX FLOW ClydeUnion Pumps, Bran & Luebbe, Plenty & Lightnin Mixer and Copes and M&J Valve Brands.The localization of SPX FLOW’s engineering and service capabilities in Iraq, further provides the opportunity for SPX FLOW & WTE aim to partner with both IOCs and state companies as they assist Iraq’s industrial redevelopment and ramp up its daily oil production.

The JV Company provides a wide range of expert support services, including field service, site survey, workshop overhaul & maintenance services, for manufacture of all types of rotating equipment including centrifugal, reciprocating, and metering pumps, mixers, as well as static equipment service – valves, filters and quick release closures. The fully equipped workshop is located in the heartland of Iraq’s oil producing south with easy access to the large oil field in the regions, Zubair, Majnoon, Rumalia, West Quarna and Missan; as well as serving Basrah and Baghdad refineries and power stations.

According to Mortimer Buckley, Regional General Manager, SPX FLOW Middle East

“The JV with WTE in Iraq has bolstered SPX FLOW’s global commitment to localize service capabilities in proximity to our key clients and enables us to best serve and quickly respond to their requirements. Six months in, our clients are appreciating the tailored, local service available from the facility.”

Falah Wajdi, Owner and General Manager, WTE Wajdi Group said

“The JV with SPX FLOW has proven to be a positive step towards our vision of delivering a world class service locally. The Service Centre, located within WTE’s North Rumaila compound, provides vital services and support for the large installed base of all types of rotating and static equipment, regardless of the original equipment manufacturer.”
