Overview by business segments

Industrial pumps

The industrial pumps business segment designs, engineers, manufactures and supplies a diverse range of pumps and pump-based integrated solutions to customers in the oil and gas, power generation and water utilities sectors in Russia, the CIS and internationally. The business segment’s principal products include bare shaft pumps built to standard specifications, customized pumps and integrated solutions.

The order intake in the industrial pumps business segment grew by    314% YoY from Rub 1,654 mn to Rub 6,852 mainly as a result of orders increase in pumps for oil transportation and oil refineries as well as pumps for nuclear power generation. Orders of pumps for oil upstream and thermal power generation contracted, which was more than offset by strong demand from the customers in the abovementioned end-markets. In Q2, HMS has signed follow-up contract for the ESPO project totaled Rub 4.6 bn and several mid-size contracts for nuclear pumps. The rest part of the order flow was packed with a large number of contracts with expected revenue less than Rub 30 mn each.

The segment’s products are equipment packages and systems installed inside a self-contained, free-standing structure which can be transported on trailers and delivered to and installed on the customer’s site as a modular but fully integrated part of the customer’s technological process.

In Q2 2012, the order intake in the oil and gas equipment segment grew by 43% and amounted to Rub 1,862 mn versus Rub 1,304 mn at the end of the Q2 2011. Continued strong demand for modular equipment and automated group metering units, upturn in orders for compressors as well as orders for tanks and vessels produced by Sibneftemash were among the main drivers of the solid business segment order flow and offset contraction of orders for the other oil and gas equipment. Aside from the Rub 0.5 bn order for delivery and commissioning of compressor packages, new orders were largely represented by the contracts with expected revenue less than Rub 150 mn per contract.
