Pumps for Dutch oil platform

KSB Aktiengesellschaft Frankenthal (Germany) is supplying 23 pumps for a drilling platform in the De Ruyter oilfield. Canada’s biggest oil producer is having the 12,500 t platform built in the Netherlands and is planning to moor it to the seabed at a depth of 35 metres some 60km to the NW of The Hague in the summer of 2006. KSB will deliver all pumping equipment for the transport of oil and seawater worth several million euros. The scope of supply includes submersible borehole pumps made from special duplex steel which will handle the seawater. The pumps will be driven by high-voltage motors with a 6000 Volt power rating which are filled with fresh water. A mechanical seal stops the seawater entering the motor space. To make sure any water losses are immediately replenished, the motor space is additionally connected to a constant-level fresh water storage tank.
