Energy technology company Baker Hughes has agreed to acquire the Power Generation division of BRUSH Group from One Equity Partners.

BRUSH is an equipment manufacturer that specialises in electric power generation and management for the industrial and energy sectors.

The addition of BRUSH, expected to conclude in Q4 2022, will enhance Baker Hughes’ core turbomachinery portfolio with electromechanical equipment, including electric generators, synchronous condensers, electric motors, and associated control power management systems.

Already in use across a wide range of industries, BRUSH’s technology complements Baker Hughes’ existing e-LNG offering.

Through the acquisition, Baker Hughes plans to optimise its supply chain by leveraging BRUSH Power Generation’s manufacturing base and expanding its scope on customer projects in both the industrial and energy sectors. Furthermore, the deal will support Baker Hughes is providing decarbonisation solutions for hard-to-abate sectors.

“We are delighted to bring the BRUSH Power Generation division, already a long-established and trusted supplier, into the Baker Hughes family,” said Rod Christie, executive vice president of Turbomachinery & Process Solutions at Baker Hughes.

“The need for electrification in the hard-to-abate and natural gas sectors plays an increasingly critical role in accelerating the path to net-zero. 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.

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.
