Driving a Water Injection Pump
Extruding crude oil from under the ocean floor requires the pumping of vast amounts of seawater into the cavity under the ocean floor in order to create pressure to force the crude out and up towards the ocean's surface.
Thousands of horsepower are used for this type of application. The seawater injection pump is powered by the SIEMENS 11kV, 118A, 2600HP. Solcon's expertise in producing highly reliable soft-starters is called upon to ensure a smooth step-less start while eliminating high inrush current and damaging torque surge during start up.
The Motor Protection package built in to each HRVS-DN starter ensures that above and beyond the advantages of a soft start, the motor is protected from a wide variety of damaging circumstances.
