Parker Hannifin has signed an Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell for the provision of instrumentation valves, manifolds, process-to-instrument valves, fittings, tubing, protective enclosures and related products. As per the EFA spanning four years, Parker’s Instrumentation Group will supply a broad range of process instrumentation products to Shell and its affiliates worldwide.
“Parker is proud to be associated with Shell. Our engineering and commercial acumen demonstrate our capabilities as a key supplier in the energy market”, said Andrew Spivey, general manager of Parker Hannifin’s Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. “We have collaborated with Shell on engineering projects, and this has given us a front row view of emerging technical challenges in critical application areas.”
“We are proud to see our clients place their confidence in our products and services.” adds Nicolas Villemain, division market development manager of Parker Hannifin Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. “We believe that such cooperative relationships between major players in their respective spheres will help establish new standards for performance, safety and cost reduction.”
Over the last decade, Parker has invested heavily in innovation, and has made many significant advances in areas including safety, speed of installation and maintenance, and lowering emissions. In particular, Parker’s new products can dramatically reduce the number of potential leak paths in a fluid system technology, and improve ergonomics for instrumentation and maintenance engineers. Its core values engineering customer challenges capture the company’s goal of leadership in the process instrumentation market.
Also important is Parker’s long experience in designing and manufacturing instrumentation using corrosion resistant alloys that optimize protection in upstream and downstream environments – a major problem for many current oil and gas projects.
