As one of the owner’s primary motor suppliers, Nidec Industrial Solutions provided the medium voltage motors used for the centrifugal pumps and compressors associated with many of the complex’s oil and gas pipelines. With more than 40 years of experience – including supplying the induction motors used on other similar projects – Nidec has a reputation for producing motors that meet the highest standards for reliability in harsh operating environments.
The 46 motors provided by Nidec for these critical path pumps supply a total of 49.2MW of electric power. Each was custom-designed and -sized to deliver optimum performance over the full operating parameters and life cycle of the project.
The new refinery and terminal is expected to support future community development and to satisfy growing domestic demand for oil within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
