Nidec Industrial Solution was selected to provide the engineered-to-order synchronous motors used to drive the extraction systems’ centrifugal air compressors, along with the captive/power transformers, switchboards, motor protection panels and neutral earthing resistor needed to complete the system.
Nidec also delivered a training to PDO’s operational and maintenance engineers in order to give an understanding of the characteristics and functionality of the motors. The training, both theoretical and practical was held directly at Nidec’s site.
Drawing on more than 40 years of experience in the oil & gas industry, Nidec worked with the owner and its contractors to deliver an engineered-to-order solution that is designed and sized to deliver optimum performance over the full operating parameters and life cycle of the project.
Together, the four 17.5 MW motors provided by Nidec for this critical application supply a total of 70 MW of mechanical power.
