Sulzer recently delivered its 1,000th pump to Enbridge, marking a unique event in the history of both companies, as well as in the industry. The event crowns a relationship that has spanned more than six decades.

On 18 July 2014, representatives of Sulzer and Enbridge met at Sulzer’s plant in Portland, Oregon, US, to celebrate the shipment of the 1,000th pump. It is now installed at Enbridge’s location in Vesper, Wisconsin, US. Sulzer has been supplying mainline pumps to Enbridge since 1953. In the recent past the pump portfolio supplied to Enbridge has been complemented with pipeline booster vertical pumps. The companies collaborate on specifically engineered pumps such as this one.

Sulzer pumps are in installed oil pipelines services throughout the world. The pumps are specifically designed for each pipeline application with custom features and hydraulics to meet the most stringent customer and governmental requirements both for the present and future expansions. A professional team knowledgeable in the customer’s requirements designed, customized and manufactured it to Enbridge needs.

Sulzer has been working diligently to meet or exceed the pipeline customer’s expectations for the past 60 years and to adapt to the developments from customers’ requirements, governmental regulations and environmental concerns. Sulzer has recently made major investments at their Portland facility, adding state-of-the-art machining centers and increasing testing capacity of large pumps. This puts Sulzer in the unique position of being able to process monthly a very high volume of pumps to meet our customers’ project schedules.
