HOUSTON -- Hayward Tyler has built the largest subsea motor ever, at 2,500 kW, for Aker Kvaerner Subsea for deployment on the Statoil-operated Tyrihans project in the Norwegian Sea. The company is showcasing the subsea motor technology at DOT in Houston (Stand 439).

Hayward Tyler was contracted to deliver three 2,500-kW motors for the project. The equipment will be used to drive Tyrihans' seawater injection pumps.

Last year, the company was contracted to supply two seawater lift pumps for the ConocoPhillips-operated central processing platform on North Belut field in the Natuna Sea, Indonesia. The pumps are built with NiAlBronze (Nickel Aluminium Bronze) and installed with MBZ8-40 30-kW motors with a flow of 170 USgpm, 3,600/- rpm.

Established in 1815 in the UK, the Hayward Tyler Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southbank UK Plc, manufactures custom-designed fluid filled electric motors and pumps. In addition to the head office in Luton, England, Hayward Tyler has manufacturing and service facilities in China, India, and USA, which also provide maintenance, overhaul, and repair services.

Hayward Tyler is exhibiting at DOT Houston – Stand 439.
