Hayward Tyler on Track to Deliver Motor to VetcoGray in Norway

Hayward Tyler, manufacturer of pumps and motors for the power and oil & gas sectors and a subsidiary of Specialist Energy Group Plc, has confirmed that the contract to produce a Deep Submersible Motor for the VetcoGray Universal Subsea Boosting Development Project is on track for delivery by the end of July 2010.

VetcoGray Scandinavia, a GE Oil & Gas business, awarded a contract to Hayward Tyler in February 2009. VetcoGray has been a leading supplier of products and services to the global upstream oil and gas industry for more than a century and specializes in upstream drilling, completion and production technology for onshore, offshore and subsea oil and gas applications.

The contract called for Hayward Tyler to design, manufacture and deliver a 2.5 MW 4-Pole 6.6kV 60 Hertz Test Motor which will be integrated into VetcoGray's High Pressure Subsea Pump skid for an exhaustive program of testing.

To date, through a team based project management process, Hayward Tyler has successfully completed all major design activities and maintained the schedule of a number of supplemental component qualification requirements, to meet the rigorous milestone schedule. Major long-lead sub-contract materials have been ordered and deliveries are due to begin early first quarter 2010, after which machining operations will commence, well within the prescribed milestone schedule.

Hayward Tyler Deep Submersible Motors are already in use in seawater injection pumps designed for depths of up to 3000m.
