About Banner

We have synchronized performance
for increased efficiency and productivity.
Just when you needed it.

Weir Oil & Gas and MTU have come together to create EPIX, answering the industry’s need for greater efficiency in harsher environments and continuous 24-hour operations.

Our initial response to meet this need is the first fully integrated power system purpose-built for hydraulic fracturing. With engine, transmission, and pump components designed to work together mechanically and electronically, the system optimizes longevity and performance, while lowering total cost of ownership for operators during the well-completion stage of shale oil and gas projects. These efficiency solutions are driven by the Weir technical sales team.

One stop shop.

Our partnership, operating as EPIX, also allows for a seamless, one-stop customer experience, supported by full-system warranties. Weir’s global service network manages all aspects of maintenance and service.

Leadership Aligned For Your Success

At EPIX, we are completely committed to helping you meet your operational and financial challenges.
