Ellesmere Port, U.K. — Cook Compression has opened a satellite service facility in Sicily, Italy. The service facility supports the rapid reconditioning of compressor valves for ISAB S.r.l, a part of Lukoil Oil Company, and other refineries in the region. ISAB has awarded Cook Compression a multiyear contract to provide technical support, reconditioning and upgrades for reciprocating compressor valves.

“We are proud to provide our valve expertise and local support to the ISAB refinery,” commented Dean Lewis, Cook Compression vice president aftermarket, Europe and Russia. “This service facility represents our commitment to building lasting partnerships that help our customers improve compressor performance and minimize equipment downtime.”

Service personnel received in-depth training from the Cook Compression European Operations headquarters in the United Kingdom, and ISAB has completed a full audit of the repair facility. Cook Compression provides valve repair for any make or model valve.

Cook Compression also has the application knowledge and technical expertise to recommend valve upgrades for improved reliability and efficiency. In-house engineering teams optimize valves for the end user’s specific operating conditions.

The Cook Compression global service portfolio includes reconditioning, replacements and upgrades for compressor sealing components, packing cases, pistons, rods and cylinders, as well as valves, providing proven solutions for emissions management and equipment optimization. The Sicily service facility has room to expand its capabilities in support of the region’s compressor service, repair and upgrade needs.
