Improving reliability and reducing downtime

SPP Pumps Ltd (SPP) and Rodelta Pumps International BV (Rodelta) have agreed a strategic alliance between two of the world’s most established and respected pump manufacturing brands.

SPP Pumps (SPP) and Rodelta Pumps International (Rodelta) have announced they have agreed a strategic alliance to improve reliability and reduce downtime in safety-critical applications. The companies say the agreement combines SPP Pumps’ ISO accredited and sustainable manufacturing expertise with Rodelta’s renowned R&D capabilities.

Established in the UK in 1878, SPP says it has grown into a leading designer and manufacturer of centrifugal pumps and associated systems, backed up by a worldwide spares and service network. Founded in 1946 in the Netherlands, Rodelta offers a technology driven product range, with an especially strong reputation for intrinsically safe pumps in potentially hazardous atmospheres.

Together, SPP and Rodelta’s say their pumps and systems are trusted globally for their reliability and low life cycle costs in safety-critical applications such as: process industries; water and wastewater treatment; fire protection; power generation; construction; mining; and other large industrial plants.

Through the formation of a joint Process & Chemical Solutions division, SPP-Rodelta will focus primarily on oil, gas, petrochemical, biofuel, hydrogen and carbon capture markets; supported by a network of knowledgeable, responsive teams in Europe, the Middle East, North America and East Asia.

Robbie Graham, Business Development Manager for the new Process & Chemical Solutions Division, commented: “I am delighted, after months of careful planning, to be formalising the longstanding cooperation between SPP and Rodelta. By combining best in class capabilities from both companies, we can now offer the latest in pumping innovations, such as our API 610 12th edition compliant OH2, OH3 and OH5 ranges, via a genuinely global sales and support network.”

In particular the alliance is responsible for developing and introducing new products to complement the Rodelta range of API 610 (12th edition) pumps; meeting the stringent safety and quality standards of the energy sector, where unplanned downtime is not an option. More specifically, this API compliant portfolio includes the ETL range of close coupled OH5 pumps, which provide improved energy efficiencies, reduced weights and smaller footprints with more user-friendly installation and maintenance than traditional alternatives
