Energy-efficient and high performance equipment for the oil and gas industry exhibited at Offshore Europe

WEG Electric Motors (UK) : 27 August, 2013  (New Product)
WEG is exhibiting its range of energy-efficient and high performance equipment for the oil and gas industry at Offshore Europe, including motors, generators, drives and motor control centres.
Energy-efficient and high performance equipment for the oil and gas industry exhibited at Offshore Europe
WEG works with OEM pump suppliers and major oil and gas companies worldwide to help them realise energy cost savings. Its reliable and efficient solutions are used in some of the most prestigious offshore oil projects. For example, WEG is a major supplier of control and automation systems and equipment to Brazilian oil company Petrobras.
WEG is one of only a few manufacturers of speed variation systems for Medium Voltage that can offer a total package, including input switchgear, dry or oil-filled phase-shifting transformer, variable speed drive (VSD) and medium voltage motor.
Highlights include the W22X LV and MV line of motors which have been designed in conjunction with the oil industry to operate in arduous operating environments. The wide operating range is up to 20MW, and all hazardous area classifications in accordance with the latest ATEX directives. 
Used on many applications including water injection, multi-stage gas compression and oil pipeline duties, the M-Line is WEG's cornerstone product for the oil and gas market. Designed for larger applications in the output range up to 20MW, the M-Line range utilises a box frame construction that is ideally suited to Ex.p. and pre-start purged Ex.n. applications for zone 1 and zone 2 areas having low leakage rates. The internal dispersement pipes within the box frame ensure an efficient and quick purge cycle thus keeping the cost of providing purging air/ inert gas to a minimum and, more importantly, providing quick start up times for operators.
For smaller applications, WEG's H-Line range offers robustness of construction and is available in safe area, Ex n and Ex e designs. The H-Line motors cater for medium voltage applications in the range up to 3.15MW and voltages up to 6600V (50 or 60Hz). Manufactured in IEC frame sizes from 315 to 630, they are compact and extremely reliable machines with sturdy cast-iron frames and high levels of resistance to corrosion.
Also on display is WEG’s W22X low voltage flameproof electric motor which has been designed to provide excellent performance in aggressive and explosive atmospheres. It has an exceptionally high energy efficiency rating to IE3 and as a result, users can optimise their processes and reduce energy usage.
Complementing the motors is WEG's MVW-01 drive which achieves 99 per cent efficiency. It is an innovative design that employs Multilevel Topology to minimise component levels, and high voltage (6.5kV) IBGTs to reduce motor harmonic currents to extremely low levels.
