2000 HP

The Ward Leonard WL29BC200 AC induction motor is the industry’s only 2000 horsepower motor designed to fit into a 1500 horsepower package—delivering an impressive 33% more power density than similarly sized motors, is 14% smaller than traditional 2000 HP motors, and 10% lighter. It is manufactured for high reliability and optimal use in onshore and offshore pump and drawworks applications.

Engineered to power mud pumps and draw works at rig sites that need to drill deeper and make longer horizontal runs, the form wound WL29BC200 is designed to withstand high shock and vibration conditions, as well as provide decades of continuous service. Certified Class H insulation, it is suited for any climate and hostile operating environment.
