FSubsea, RuhRPumpen Team Up on Seabed Pumping Systems

Norway’s Fuglesangs Subsea (FSubsea) and the German pump company RuhRPumpen have partnered to develop advanced subsea centrifugal pump solutions.

The two firms have joined forces to deliver seabed boosting and injection systems.

The partnership should leverage FSubsea’s subsea pump system expertise with RuhRPumpen’s more than 65 years of experience in oil & gas pump development and manufacturing.

According to FSubsea, the two companies will initially focus on “Seal-Less” and “Topside-Less” subsea pumps for injection and boosting applications. The “Seal-Less” technology removes dynamic shaft seals in subsea pumps, and “Topside-Less” technology removes the requirement for a topside hydraulic power unit (HPU) and topside variable frequency drive (VFD).

Cesar A. Elizondo, CEO for RuhRPumpen, said: “This new collaboration is an exciting development for the Oil & Gas industry and it demonstrates our responsiveness to changing market conditions. RuhRPumpen and Fuglesangs Subsea AS have the technology, engineering experience, and global footprint to deliver innovative solutions to save our customers money and enhance equipment performance. We are looking forward to working closely together and seeing the benefits our joint approach provides to subsea field developers.”
