Kazakhstan President Visits Flowserve Central Asian Service and Repair Facility

Dec 09 2011

Flowserve Corporation (USA), a provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, announces a recent visit by Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev to the Flowserve Quick Response Center (QRC) located in the city of Atyrau. Mr. Nazarbayev was accompanied by Messrs. Umirzak Shukeev, first vice-Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, and Gazizbek Turaliev, service center director, Flowserve.

During his visit, President Nazarbayev recognized Flowserve as the first Western original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to invest in his country's drive to establish a world-class industrial support infrastructure. The presence of Flowserve, Mr. Nazarbayev noted, is an important step in meeting local ownership and content goals of the country's industrial development program. While touring the facility, Mr. Nazarbayev saw the success of the newly established customs union between Kazakhstan and Russia when the Flowserve Atyrau QRC was repairing worn pumping systems from a Russian refinery.

From its location in western Kazakhstan on the Caspian Sea, the Flowserve Atyrau QRC is designed to help fulfill the service and repair needs of the oil and gas, mining and mineral processing, power generation, water resources, chemical and related infrastructure industries of Kazakhstan, Russia and the central Asian region. The Atyrau QRC is equipped to provide maintenance and repair services for pumps, seals and valves, regardless of the original manufacturer. In addition to the packaging of new pumping systems, the Atyrau QRC routinely performs hydraulic re-rates, mechanical and materials upgrades, asset management services, and in-the-field maintenance and repair. The Atyrau QRC began operations in February 2011.
