ITT’s C’treat and Bombas Goulds de Mexico will partner to deliver large-scale seawater, potable water and high-purity water solutions to Mexico’s offshore energy industry.
C’treat provides offshore reverse-osmosis seawater desalination systems and focuses exclusively on offshore platform customers. Goulds Pumps and its BGM manufacturing plant near Mexico City supplies API pumping systems to markets in Latin American markets. BGM and C’treat have announced their plans to open an office in Cuidad del Carmen, Campeche, Mexico to provide customer project sales support, aftermarket parts and offshore-qualified service.
“This strategic ITT alliance demonstrates our growing commitment to supporting the world oil and gas market and the offshore industry, in particular,” said Aris Chicles, president of ITT’s Industrial Process business, in an official announcement. “The Mexican offshore market is growing rapidly and this alliance will allow us to enhance our presence and bring our customers additional support and services through a one-stop solution for offshore platforms.”
C’treat General Manager Brian Jacoby said, “We’ve delivered more than 40 systems to Pemex, including many large-scale, multi-million dollar seawater and potable water systems. Our Mexico clients value our long-lasting, high-quality systems that are delivered on time, and we are very excited about the local customer support BGM will provide.”
BGM General Manager Rodrigo Angele said combining C’treat’s existing systems with Bombas Goulds offshore pumping solutions allows customers to award a single contract for an offshore platform’s full water work scope.
“It’s a compelling advantage for platform builders who need large-scale contractors to deliver quality projects on time so as to avoid construction delay penalties,” Angele said.
