GE Oil & Gas, a world leading company in oil and gas advanced technology equipment and services, announces that its newly redesigned DVS Centrifugal Pump for liquid pipeline applications has joined GE’s ecomagination portfolio.
The newest GE DVS Centrifugal Pipeline Pump, most commonly coupled to an electric motor for pipeline pumping, is designed to offer 3-4% higher efficiency than prior GE technology for liquid pipeline applications, with a flow of up to 9,500 cubic meters per hour, reducing operator electricity costs and associated CO2 emissions from power generation.
Joe Mastrangelo, vice president—turbomachinery, GE Oil & Gas said: “Oil and gas operators are constantly seeking reliable, proven and cost-effective solutions to optimize performance and reduce environmental footprint. The ecomagination qualified DVS Centrifugal Pipeline Pump delivers all of these benefits and is an excellent example of the innovation and added value we provide to our customers.”
Running at full capacity for a year the new DVS Centrifugal Pipeline Pump enables saving an amount of energy equivalent to the electricity consumed annually by over 200 U.S. homes, while pumping the volume equivalent of an Olympic swimming pool every 16 minutes.
To date, eight GE Oil & Gas products are included in GE’s ecomagination portfolio.
GE’s ecomagination Product Review (EPR) process provides a third-party verification of claims, quantifying operating and environmental performance benefits that accrue to GE’s customers by using ecomagination products relative to baselines such as competitors' best products, the installed base of products and regulatory standards. These ecomagination claims can be found in GE's printed materials and advertisements, and on the web at ge.com/ecomagination. Ecomagination products are re-qualified regularly to help ensure that claims remain accurate.
