Recognized as a world leader in the supply of stand-alone pumps and flow control products with extensive experience in the oil sector, Flowserve trusted on WEG for its capability of supplying tailor-made solutions for the Oil & Gas industry.
To meet the project requirements WEG has designed four water-cooled induction motors of 5600 kW - 2 poles - 13.8 kV which were packaged to Flowserveâs BB5 API centrifugal pumps.
The electric motor and pump set comprises a water injection pumping system for an FPSO - Floating Production Storage and Offloading. This system injects seawater to increase the oilfield pressure and boost production of oil and gas.
According to Mr. Francisco Jose Longo, Commercial Operations Manager of Flowserve in Brazil, the combined work between the two companies was essential to carry out the project and meet the deadlines. "As always, WEG has met all technical and commercial requirements from the quotation stage up to the delivery of the sets," said Mr. Longo.
In addition to that, projects of such importance help substantially to consolidate WEG and Flowserve as leading manufacturers of high-tech machinery for the global Oil & Gas industry.
