As regulatory, operational and performance pressures surrounding the use of diesel power continue to mount, more operators and service providers are looking closely at the advantages of using electric motor power at their frac spreads. With recent advances in electric motor analysis, design optimization techniques and variable frequency drive (VFD) software, it is now possible to remove the diesel engine, transmission and associated auxiliary equipment from the pumping platform, and replace it with a single alternating current (AC) induction motor directly connected to the pump input shaft.
The result: higher horsepower motors in a smaller footprint, greater portability, transmission elimination and virtually maintenance-free upkeep.
Ward Leonard is here to provide the comprehensive expertise, technical guidance and the custom motor, drive, controls and power source solutions they need to make the transition.
