Siemens To Supply Pumps For TransCanada's Keystone Expansion
Siemens Energy received an order to supply integrated pumping systems for TransCanada's Keystone Gulf Coast Expansion Project. The pipeline will transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to the U.S. Gulf Coast. The first phase is expected to begin delivering crude oil to the U.S. Midwest in mid-2010.
Siemens' scope of supply includes pumps and electrical equipment for 38 pumping stations, which includes 104 pumps and motors as well as variable-frequency drives, E-houses with medium- and low-voltage switchgear and unit control systems for each station. In addition, Siemens will be responsible for system integration of the components and will also supply four high-voltage substations.
Siemens said this expansion will be the first pipeline to directly connect a growing and reliable supply of Canadian crude oil to the largest refining market in North America.
