Gothenburg, 17 October 2016: SKF and GE Oil & Gas have signed a
non-exclusive, licence-based collaboration agreement, aimed at
further developing the use of active magnetic bearing technologies
within the oil and gas sector.

As part of the agreement, GE Oil & Gas will make use of SKF's leading
magnetic bearing technologies from front-end engineering design to
installation, testing and service to customers. The partnership also
provides the basis for future collaboration, to widen the scope of
applications of active magnetic bearings into other GE Oil & Gas
turbomachinery, such as steam and gas turbines.

number of breakthroughs within the oil and gas sector. Through this
agreement, we are strengthening our technology leadership and
enhancing our relationship with GE Oil & Gas. We are also

the scope of applications for these technologies."

Luca Maria Rossi, General Manager for Turbomachinery Solutions Product
Management, GE Oil & Gas, says: "Active magnetic bearings bring
relevant benefits in terms of reliability, maintenance needs and
performance in our compressor technology. Through this strategic
agreement, we will be able to provide our customers more optimized
solutions with GE as a unique point of contact for the entire
machinery and auxiliaries. SKF will bring the know-how and core
expertise, while GE Oil & Gas brings the scale, process and service
