Electro Submersible Pumps


SPP Pumps submersible pumps are custom engineered for the oil and gas industry. Pumps are of the vertical turbine design and can be provided in either single or multi-stage configuration to suit client's requirements. They are driven by submersible (IP68) motors as an alternative to deck mounted drive units and can be supplied up to 100 meters in overall length.

In pump packages incorporating electro-submersible pumps, the pump and motor are located below sea level in a caisson, while the diesel generator is placed on the platform where space allows. These systems tend to be favoured where platform design or space limitations prevent the use of conventional platform mounted lineshaft pumps.

Dependent upon application, these pumps can either be driven by existing platform supplies or dedicated diesel generator drives. In instances where dedicated diesel generators are required, SPP Pumps are able to specify and supply fully packaged generator sets to meet this requirement.

A Lower Life Cycle Cost

Research and operating experience has shown the diesel alternator/electric drive concept to be very efficient, comparatively simple to install and maintain, and to have a lower life cycle cost than other indirect drive systems currently available. It is ideally suited to the rigorous conditions that exist offshore where meticulous cleanliness during installation is almost impossible to achieve.
