• GE and Gexpro Collaborate to Bring Turnkey Product and Service Solutions to Oil and Gas Customers;
• Advanced Electrical Distribution Technology Protects Resources, Plant Investment;
• GE’s Electric Odyssey Tour Lets Customers See, Touch Products;
• Oil and Gas Industry Looks to GE and Gexpro for Product Reliability and Safety.

GE Energy Management’s (NYSE: GE) Industrial Solutions business is collaborating with Gexpro, a part of Rexel Holdings USA, to provide customers in the oil and gas industry with innovative advanced-technology products and services that are critical to the safety and protection of resources and plant investment.

Together, Industrial Solutions and Gexpro provide turnkey electrical distribution systems that are critical to arc flash protection, operational reliability and reducing the costs associated with unplanned system downtime.

The collaboration is highlighted today with a visit from GE’s Electric Odyssey Tour at Gexpro’s Houston headquarters. The Odyssey Tour is a six-month road show in the U.S. and Canada that showcases GE’s innovative electrical distribution portfolio— including low- and medium-voltage equipment, circuit breakers, and arc flash mitigation products as well as product lifecycle and inspection service solutions. More than 1,200 customers to-date have toured the Odyssey truck. Today’s demonstration is focused on protection for both personnel and equipment. This includes GE’s Arc VaultTM protection systems, Entellysis® low-voltage switchgear and EntelliGuard® TU trip units.

“We have a longstanding commitment to the oil and gas industry, and it’s exciting to be here with GE, a long-time partner of Gexpro,” said Bill Hoyt, Gexpro’s vice president of sales and business development. “Together, we have the capability to meet the needs of our customers, whether they are in North America, South America, Middle East, Asia Pacific or Europe. We look forward to educating Houston customers about products and services that will help them maximize their system’s reliability and create a safer working environment.”

Gexpro has been one of GE’s largest and most successful authorized distributors. Last year, the distributor named Industrial Solutions its Supplier of the Year.

“Safety is key to everything our oil and gas customers do, so naturally we are focused on providing reliable products and service solutions for a safe, trouble-free operation,” said Brian Donovan, sales executive in vertical markets for GE Energy Management’s Industrial Solutions business. “GE’s arc flash mitigation solutions address this safety concern. In addition, our collaboration with Gexpro helps us identify customer needs for arc flash studies and other safety related services that GE can provide to substantially reduce hazard to personnel and equipment,” he added.

A significant example of GE and Gexpro working together in the industry can be seen in a recent project with a major oil and gas customer in Louisiana. The companies teamed up to upgrade a critical distribution substation. The project features two power equipment center buildings supplied by Gexpro, as well as low- and medium-voltage switchgear, low voltage motor control centers and busway from Industrial Solutions. The project is expected to be completed in 2013.

Industrial Solutions, a GE heritage business, is leading the future of electrification with advanced technologies that distribute electricity and protect and control a facility’s electrical infrastructure. The business provides customers, across various industries, with end-to-end product and service solutions that help ensure the reliability and protection of the electrical infrastructure. Industrial Solutions’ product and service solutions add to GE Energy Management’s broader portfolio of leading technology solutions for the delivery, management conversion and optimization of electrical power for customers across multiple energy intensive industries.
