Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy, leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has received a new follow up order for their proprietary Variable Frequency Drive systems (VFDs) from an existing customer in the Alberta oilsands. The orders amount to approximately CAD$1.2 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.

“This major follow up order clearly illustrates the high performance and operational excellence of our VFD solutions”, says Martin Curtis, President and General Manager of Simark Controls. “They bring speed, reliability, precision and major cost savings to oil and gas production.”

Simark Controls Ltd. is a service oriented, value added sales company specialising in custom integrated and manufactured solutions of high quality instrumentation, automation, energy and power products. Simark provides instrumentation and measurement systems, power components and drives, security and surveillance equipment for the oil and gas industry and mining, forestry and community supply markets. The company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
