Simark Controls Ltd., a subsidiary of SFC Energy, leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, has won another new major oil producing customer. The Canadian Oil Producer has placed an order for Simark’s fully integrated Variable Frequency Drive systems (VFDs) for their oil assets in Alberta. The order amount is in the upper six-digit CAD range. The order was still delivered in 2018 and recognised in 2018 sales & earnings.
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. We custom-design our systems to give producers exactly what they need.”
