May 21, 2015 - Flowserve received orders totaling approximately $18 million (USD) for pumping systems for the Petroperú Talara refinery in Piura, Peru. The project, led by Spanish-based contractor Técnicas Reunidas, will modernize the Talara refinery and allow it to produce gasoline and diesel fuels that adhere to new Peruvian environmental standards. It is the first major pump installment in the refinery since the 1970s.

Flowserve received orders for horizontal overhung process pumps (OH2 and OH3) and horizontal between-bearing pumps (BB1, BB2 and BB3).

"Flowserve's success on this major refining project in Latin America highlights several key attributes of the company," said Jim Quain, president, Flowserve Sales Organization. "Flowserve's broad product portfolio, including the specialized Flowserve Lawrence brand pumps, allowed us to meet the overall needs and harsh conditions of this project. Additionally, the ability to leverage our global base and to manufacture the majority of the pumps in Latin America were important factors for the end user. And the coverage of both the Peruvian refinery and the contractor in Spain shows the strength and reach of Flowserve's global sales team." 

The Flowserve Rio de Janeiro and Lawrence facilities will work together to deliver the equipment to Petroperú. Local support will be provided by the Flowserve Quick Response Center located in Lima, Peru.
