Dresser-Rand Receives Rolls-Royce Assurance for Gas Turbines

Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment and aftermarket parts and services, commented upon the recent announcement that Rolls-Royce signed an agreement to sell its Energy gas turbine and compressor business to Siemens.  

Dresser-Rand has worked closely with Rolls-Royce Energy for well over 30 years and has been very successful in supplying compressors for the upstream and midstream market applications. In the last few years, Dresser-Rand has also succeeded in penetrating the liquefied natural gas (LNG) / floating LNG (FLNG) market.

Vincent R. Volpe Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Dresser-Rand, said, “We are pleased to report that we have been contacted by Rolls-Royce senior management and have been assured that both Rolls-Royce and Siemens are committed to supporting their clients and that Dresser-Rand will continue to have access to the Rolls-Royce aero-derivative gas turbines.”  He added, “Dresser-Rand and Rolls-Royce have a long history of working together around the world.  For example, all the mechanical drive applications for Rolls-Royce largest aero-derivative gas turbine, the Trent ™, are currently driving Dresser-Rand DATUM® compressors.  Further, Dresser-Rand has recently been successful in being selected for two large FLNG projects using the Trent gas turbine as a driver for our DATUM® liquefaction compressors, demonstrating the value that Dresser-Rand brings to our clients in oil and gas markets. 

We believe this assurance preserves Dresser-Rand’s unique position because the Company will continue to provide a choice of gas turbine drivers to our clients to meet their specific compression requirements.
