WATER INJECTION PUMP MOTOR
Gryphon Alpha FPSO, North Sea
Products In Use:
Water injection pump motor
On the Gryphon Alpha, the water injection pump had been redundant for a few months. When needed to be re-instated, the DC motor was damp. They considered sending the motor back to the beach which would have taken several weeks and wasted thousands of pounds to re-build.
The SA FLEXIHEAT ATEX Heater was used to dry out the motor in situ, so that it could be brought back into service quickly.
The heater saved them hundreds of thousands of pounds when they took in the cost of sea freight, downtime, repair, more sea freight and re-installation time plus the issue of managing without the pump. All in all it was a very cost effective solution. The Heater was very simple to use and they will be using this unit for other applications around the vessel.
