Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, March 6, 2018 – 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 oil sands. The orders amount to approx. 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, optimized 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.”
