Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy and provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has received a new follow up order for fully integrated Variable Frequency Drive systems (VFDs) from an existing customer in the Alberta oil sands. The orders amount to approximately CAN$1.1 million.
VFD Systems operate electric submersible pumps (ESPs) used to artificially lift heavy oil from well-pads. The VFDs significantly reduce installation and operating costs. Additional benefits are improved pump uptimes, optimised pump operation and augmented oil production.
“We are excited to continue working with our key customers to help improve performance and drive down costs,” said Mark Vandenbrink, Vice-President Drives & Motor Control of Simark Controls. “Our systems are designed and built to the specific requirements of the end-user.”
