Vulkan Drive-Tech

The VULKAN company has been owned solely by the Hackforth family since 1889. Through internalisation and diversification into other business sectors, the VULKAN Group today consists of four divisions who, from a technical standpoint, are largely independent, as well as six international production locations and 20 subsidiaries. Headquartered in Herne (Germany). Closeness to customers and translating their special requirements into products and services in the market sectors defines VULKAN’s approach to customer service. It is a case of finding the balance between traditional values such as reliability and technical ability on the one hand and increasingly cost-orientated solutions on the other, whether for customized or standard models. VULKAN Drive Tech is the group division specialized in power transmission solutions for the oil and gas, mining and construction iron and steel, bulk handling material, sugar and ethanol, pulp and paper, and energy sectors. VULKAN Drive Tech products and services to oil and gas sector are applicable onshore and offshore, in oil platforms and vessels in general, such as: work boats, oil tankers, FPSO, PTO’S e PTI’s, generators, compressors, pumps, and mechanical and diesel-electric probes.
