Hayward Tyler Group strengthens its international nuclear cooperation

Mr Lu Jinqi,, Chairman & CEO, Shanghai Apollo Machinery Company and Mr Ewan Lloyd-Baker, CEO, Hayward Tyler Group at the signing ceremony.

Hayward Tyler Group PLC (HTG) and Shanghai Apollo Machinery Co (Apollo) agree a multifaceted Strategic Cooperation Agreement for Nuclear Power Collaboration.

In a more connected world, where globalisation and cross border collaboration are key to supporting the continued demand for clean, affordable energy across the globe, HTG is proud to announce a new nuclear partnership.

HTG is a leading supplier of performance-critical engineering solutions and equipment, including pumps, motors and power solutions, to the energy industry with a well-established heritage of supporting the global nuclear industry since the 1950s through its UK and USA facilities.

Apollo is a leading supplier of equipment and service across the whole Chinese nuclear industry from its facility in Shanghai. Its offering includes nuclear-class pumps and major non-nuclear class pumps as well as equipment for nuclear fuel cycle.

The two organisations have agreed to explore opportunities to cooperate in developing and deploying equipment in support of: i) the UK nuclear new build programme; ii) Small Modular Reactor (SMR) development programmes; iii) Generation IV reactor technologies, and iv) reprocessing and decommissioning.

Dr Colin Elcoate, HTGs Chief Commercial Officer commented “with HTG’s strong heritage and manufacturing footprint combined with Apollo’s impressive product range and presence in the booming Chinese nuclear market, this cooperation allows the group to support its global customers with a wider set of innovative and competitive engineering solutions.”

Mr Lu Jinqi, Apollo’s Chairman and CEO commented “both companies have ambitious plans in the global nuclear industry and have highly complementary product lines and geographic locations.  With a short-term focus on Chinese SMRs and the UK new build programme, the timing is perfect to cooperate and allow our customer base to benefit from the combined capability and global presence.”

The agreement was signed on the 27th July 2017 by Mr Ewan Lloyd Baker, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), HTG and Mr Lu Jinqi Chairman & CEO, Apollo in the British Consulate General in Shanghai under the presence of the Deputy Consul General, Tony Clemson and his team.

Ebara – huge opportunities for both companies.

We have formed a strategic alliance with Ebara Corporation, a leading Japanese manufacturer of pumps for the energy, oil and gas, and general industry sectors. The scope of the agreement covers the supply of Hayward Tyler’s boiler circulating pumps in Japan and globally through Ebara with a number of major Engineering, Procurement and Construction groups.

With 60 years’ BCP experience, our BCPs are designed to operate for up to 65,000 hours between maintenance. We designed the World’s first glandless BCP and at 2,300 units have the largest global installed base of BCPs.

Strategic Alliance – Ebara Corporation

We have formed a strategic alliance with Ebara Corporation, a leading  Japanese manufacturer of pumps for the energy, oil and gas, and general industry sectors. This opens up a new market for Hayward Tyler with the supply of boiler circulating pumps to the Japanese market, which could be used to open as many as 40 new coal fired power stations over the next decade.

Subsea Production Alliance Agreement – FMC Technologies

The Directors of Hayward Tyler are delighted to announce the signing of a production alliance agreement with FMC Technologies, the global market leader in subsea systems. Under the terms of the agreement, Hayward Tyler will manufacture permanent magnet motors for use in FMC Technologies’ 3.2MW subsea pump systems. The agreement is accompanied by an initial US$2 million commitment by FMC Technologies towards the on-going development of Hayward Tyler’s Luton plant.

Ewan Lloyd-Baker, CEO of Hayward Tyler, commented:

“The offshore oil & gas market is of long-term strategic importance to Hayward Tyler and underpins our investment into our Centre of Excellence in Luton. The production alliance agreement with FMC Technologies is of cornerstone importance in relation to our subsea activity.”

The on-going expansion of Hayward Tyler’s Luton manufacturing facility includes a dedicated test facility for its subsea motors.
Jim Pribble, President and General Manager of FMC Technologies’ Direct Drive Systems business added:

“Combined, we can now offer the subsea oil and gas segment the absolute latest technology – and then deliver it with best-in-class manufacturing capability. This critical step ensures our customers receive the most reliable subsea boosting solutions available while enhancing the economics for subsea reservoir development.”

Hayward Tyler in joint initiative with Eureka after contract win

Hayward Tyler has struck an agreement with Norway’s Eureka Pumps that will see them jointly market underwater pump and motor units that are under 2MW for the offshore oil and gas exploration market.

The pair will also work together to provide after-market services for under water units. The joint initiative comes after the two companies jointly won orders for 14 units for the Aasta Hansteen and Martin Linge projects in the North Sea, which are worth £3.5m to Hayward Tyler.
