Baker Hughes Obtains BRUSH Power Division

BRUSH expands Baker Hughes’ turbomachinery portfolio

Baker Hughes (BH) is obtaining the Power Generation division of BRUSH Group. This acquisition supports the company’s aim in providing decarbonization solutions for the natural gas industry. BRUSH enhances BH turbomachinery portfolio with electromechanical equipment, including electric generators, synchronous condensers, electric motors, and associated control power management systems. BRUSH’s technology complements BH existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) offering.

Rod Christie, Executive Vice President of Turbomachinery & Process Solutions at BH says, “Through this acquisition, we will expand our core electrification capabilities and scope, further enhance our supply chain, and reach new industrial customers who can benefit from our broader turbomachinery and climate technology solutions offerings.”

BRUSH serves both commercial and industrial customers, including manufacturers, as well as energy producers, such as utility-scale power generators and upstream oil and gas producers. BH views this as an opportunity to establish an electro-mechanical technology platform.

BRUSH currently operates in four facilities in the U.K., Czech Republic, and The Netherlands, with aftermarket capabilities through service centers in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The deal will close in Q4 2022.
