Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR), has signed a five-year Enterprise Framework Agreement with Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B) to serve as a global strategic supplier for field instruments and on/off valve actuators, important technologies used in automating refineries and plants. The new agreement builds on an existing relationship where Emerson serves as a Main Automation Contractor for Shell capital projects.
Under the new Enterprise Framework Agreement, Emerson will be Shell’s sole-source supplier of on/off valve actuators – including its Bettis and EIM product lines – and provide support for actuators in Shell facilities worldwide. Emerson will also be a global strategic supplier of field instruments that provide pressure, temperature and flow information to help Shell run its production and processing operations safely and efficiently. Emerson field-instrument brands include Rosemount and Micro Motion.
“We welcome this opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Shell,” said Steve Sonnenberg, president of Emerson Process Management. “We look forward to applying both our Main Automation Contractor capabilities and this broader range of products to bring Shell even more of the benefits of our integrated PlantWeb automation technology.”
