American Electric Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, announced that its M&I Electric business has been awarded multiple contracts to provide turnkey power delivery solutions for a leading North American provider of midstream energy services to producers and consumers of natural gas, NGLs, crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals.
M&I received orders for IntelliSafe™ arc-resistant switchgear and M&I turnkey solutions to power a new pipeline designed to transport Permian Basin crude oil and condensate from the customer's Midland, Texas terminal to its storage facility west of Houston. M&I received a separate order for the IntelliSafe to provide safe power distribution for the expansion of the customer’s Houston-based terminal that provides crude storage capacity and a pipeline that links the terminal with refining facilities in the southeast Texas refinery market.
“Although arc-resistant switchgear has been used to enhance operator safety for many years in the refining and chemical markets, the midstream industry has traditionally been resistant to deploy arc-resistant switchgear due to perceptions of increased cost,” said Troy Coker, Vice President, North America Power Distribution at M&I. “We are very pleased that our customer is leading the midstream industry by deploying M&I’s IntelliSafe arc-resistant technology to meet the growth requirements of their Permian crude project, while setting a new standard for increased electrical personnel protection for their pipeline and other midstream projects.
M&I Electric’s IntelliSafe arc-resistant medium voltage switchgear incorporates patent pending safety features, 100% process industry practices (PIP) specification compliance, and industrial internet of things capabilities enabling a new level of safety for oil and gas, power generation, and other critical power projects. IntelliSafe is part of the M&I’s turnkey power delivery solutions portfolio, which includes custom-designed medium and low voltage conventional switchgear, power distribution centres, power conversion systems, power management and SCADA systems, construction and E&I services.
