About Dürr Universal

Dürr Universal is a global provider of custom-engineered ancillary equipment and solutions to the power generation, oil and gas, industrial processing, rail transportation and backup power markets. For more than half a century, OEMs, EPCs, packagers and end-users have relied on Universal to engineer acoustic and emission / filtration systems to meet their specific needs and provide unparalleled support across the entire energy generation lifecycle. 

Our comprehensive single-sourced solution not only meets environmental, regulatory and operational requirements, but helps operators reduce costs, improve the efficiency of equipment, and achieve safety and compliance targets. Our systems portfolio features exhaust and inlet systems, including silencers, ducts, structural steel, dampers/diverters and filters for gas turbines, and diesel and natural gas engines.

The Dürr Group ("Dürr"), a leading international mechanical and plant engineering group, completed the acquisition of B&W Universal from Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. through its subsidiary, Dürr Inc., on the 8th of October, 2018. B&W Universal will be named Dürr Universal, Inc.

Merging Universal's activities with the existing environmental activities of the Dürr Group will create a leading supplier of environmental technology systems and systems for acoustic solutions. Thanks to its comprehensive technology and service range as well as its global positioning, customer requirements can now be better met. Dürr wants to significantly expand its environmental technology business and sees this area as a core business. Under the company acquisition agreement, Dürr Universal will fulfill all its current contractual obligations toward its customers and maintain the service for existing Dürr Universal systems.
