- Simark Controls wins new major customer: Canadian Oil Producer places order for Simark’s successful, fully integrated Variable Frequency Drive Systems (VFDs) for their oil assets.
- Simark’s VFD systems help the oil producer to significantly reduce costs with unique installation and operations benefits.
- Order amount: In the upper six-digit CAD range. Delivery and sales & earnings reporting still in 2018.
The ordered VFD Systems operate electric submersible pumps (ESPs) used to artificially lift heavy oil from well-pads. Simark designed the systems specifically for seamless integration into the customer’s control system, precisely meeting the oil producer’s specific electrical requirements. Additional system benefits are improved system uptimes, optimized pump operation and augmented oil production.
“Our customized Variable Frequency Drive solutions are experiencing continued demand and strong recognition in the oil & gas industry”, says Mark Vandenbrink, Vice-President Drives & Motor Control of Simark Controls. “Automation, system intelligence, simplified logistics and low integration and operating costs are the main innovation drivers in the industry.
