Submersible pumps from Andritz

Start-up is scheduled for the first half of 2014.

The submersible motor pumps (multi-stage centrifugal pumps in combination with maintenance-free submersible motors) pump the raw water for the drilling platform from a depth of 10-20 metres below sea level.

The Andritz pumps are specially designed to deal with rough offshore conditions and safeguard against failure.
