GE said it has opened its newly expanded oil and gas facility in Fót, Hungary.
The GE Oil & Gas manufacturing plant has been substantially enlarged with the addition of a new 8,000 square meter manufacturing facility and a new office building of 3,000 square meters. The new manufacturing base will provide central unit control panels (UCPs) for pipelines, LNG production facilities and other oil and gas applications.
Unit Control Panels for the oil and gas industry are designed for the specific customer needs. These are flexible control systems for multiple applications that incorporate a variety of sub systems such as safe operation of machinery, vibrations monitoring, control of unit speed and load, auxiliaries systems, and overall plant control. Panels are designed to enable local or remote operations.
Bringing production of these critical control panels to Fót, Hungary, supports GE’s efforts to align its production to new customer needs and to extend its technology capability locally and globally. The Fót facility will also supply its advanced products and solutions to GE customers globally.
