Flowserve and Heide Refinery announce partnership

Flowserve Corporation (FLS), a provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, and Heide Refinery, Germany’s northernmost crude oil refinery and chemicals company, have announced a partnership to incorporate Flowserve’s Energy Advantage Program to accelerate Heide Refinery’s momentum in energy efficiency.

Flowserve’s Energy Advantage Program leverages a data-driven engineering evaluation process that promotes energy efficiency through optimization of pump and valve power consumption – with little to no disruption to a customer’s existing processes. This holistic flow control approach helps customers like Heide reach their carbon reduction goals and lower the total cost of ownership.

Aligned with its efforts to reduce carbon emissions, Heide Refinery is innovating to provide reliable energy while limiting its environmental impact and embeds energy efficiency into its value chain. Capitalizing on this strategic opportunity, Heide Refinery is working closely with Flowserve to capture additional energy savings.

Flowserve’s initial assessment analyzed Heide Refinery’s highest energy-consuming flow loops, identifying significant potential savings. Flowserve engineers introduced flow control solutions and recommendations that matched Heide Refinery’s existing process requirements –with improved energy efficiency and performance. By following Flowserve’s Energy Advantage Program recommendations, Heide Refinery is expected to reduce its power consumption annually by more than an estimated 2,000 Megawatt Hours (MWh).
