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 a US$4 million contract to provide a turnkey power delivery solution for a new pipeline under construction in Texas (USA).
The company received the award from one of the largest midstream oil and gas companies in the US for a new pipeline being constructed to deliver crude oil from the Permian Basin in west Texas across the state to Nederland, Texas. The new pipeline will provide transportation of up to 100 000 bpd of oil, with an estimated total capacity of up to 300 000 bpd.
The M&I turnkey power delivery system will supply safe, reliable power distribution for three compressor stations and includes M&I’s turnkey power delivery solutions and medium and low voltage conventional switchgear, low voltage and medium voltage motor control centres, and installation and integration of 3rd party 7000HP variable frequency drives, all integrated into M&I power distribution centres (PDCs).
“M&I Electric continues to make progress with leading oil and gas companies with our turnkey power delivery solutions,” said Troy Coker, Vice President, Sales at M&I. “Large midstream and companies like this understand the benefits of having a fully tested and integrated solution incorporating both switchgear and PDCs built at the same location to reduce costs, meet project schedules and reduce project risk.”
M&I expects delivery of this project to occur in early 2018. Additional details were not disclosed.
