Siemens Energy has received an order to supply integrated pumping solutions for TransCanada’s Keystone Gulf Coast Expansion Project. The pipeline will transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada to serve markets on the US Gulf Coast. The expansion will complement the overall Keystone pipeline system, with the first phase expected to begin delivering crude oil to the US Midwest in mid-2010. The order volume for Siemens is more than USD180 million. Siemens will supply 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 pumping station. Furthermore, Siemens will be responsible for system integration of the components and will also supply four high-voltage substations.
