Emerson inks Shell actuator deal
Firm to become single-source supplier to energy giant
Shell and Emerson Process Management have signed a five-year enterprise framework agreement that makes Emerson the single-source supplier of on/off valve actuators to Shell and its affiliates.
Under the agreement, Emerson will provide products from its broad portfolio of valve automation technologies, including Bettis™ pneumatic and hydraulic actuators and EIM electric and electro-hydraulic actuators. In addition to new actuators for both new and existing facilities, Emerson will also provide ongoing support of Shell’s previously installed actuators.
The relationship builds on an existing agreement under which Emerson serves as a main automation contractor for Shell capital projects, and Shell also recently selected Emerson as a global strategic supplier of pressure, temperature and flow field instruments.
“We appreciate Shell’s confidence in our ability to help them reach their automation and business goals,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emerson Process Management. “We welcome the opportunity to strengthen that confidence – and our relationship - through the new enterprise framework agreement.”
