Parker Hannifin signs EFA with Shell for CRA products
07 March 2018
Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global company specializing in motion and control technologies, has signed a new Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell for the provision of instrumentation valves, manifolds, process-to-instrument valves, fittings, tubing, protective enclosures and related products. Many of these products will be made out of corrosion resistant alloys. As per the EFA spanning 4 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."
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 (CRAs) that optimize protection in upstream and downstream environments - a major problem for many current oil and gas projects.
