Siemens to supply pumping solutions for TransCanada’s Keystone expansion

The pipeline will transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada to serve markets on the US Gulf Coast.

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.

“This order is an important milestone in Siemens' evolution from a product supplier to a solutions provider and systems integrator,” said Tom Blades, CEO of the Oil & Gas Division of Siemens Energy. “Being able to offer technically proven, standardized solutions from a single source allows us to support our customers in reducing risk and increasing delivery certainty.”
