SME design and manufacture a world leading range of Electric and Hydraulically Driven Subsea Pumps. These are designed to operate as Heavy Duty Jetting Pumps on Subsea Trenchers and Ploughs, Subsea Dredging and Excavation Equipment. SME Pumps are robust and reliable in the toughest of environments. Our ﬂexible design capabilities mean we can manufacture Subsea Pumps to suit most applications. Our range of motors allow Flexible External Dimensions to suit all requirements and provide the possibility of “Drop In‘’ replacement units.
We offer a variety of Construction Materials from Anodised Aluminium to Exotic Stainless Steel Alloys to ensure long term reliability in varied environments whilst still oﬁering the advantages of light weight design.
SME can design and manufacture from “raw material up” to ensure the Motor and Pump is ideally suited for the application. This bespoke Manufacturing policy ensures we can meet any special design requirements. SME can build motor and pumps from Fractional Kilowatt Motors right through to large outputs in the Megawatts and above to ensure we meet all requirements.
SME Electrically Driven Subsea Pumps can be manufactured in all voltages from 24V through to 6600V at 50Hz or 60Hz, or for use with Variable Speed Drives. Due to SME’s proprietary Insulation System motors up to 4160V can be built with a Random Winding to reduce size and weight whilst losing nothing in terms of reliability. This insulation system is speciﬁcally engineered to ensure suitability of operation in Hydraulic Oil or many of the Bio-Degradable Oils commonly used for Compensation circuits.
All pumps are designed for external compensation allowing for operation at depths as much as 4000M. The Motors can also be offered with Cooling circuits to ensure high output motors maintain minimal operating temperatures at Full Load. SME Motors are ﬁtted with Water Detection Probes and Temperature Detectors and these can be terminated to a variety of different Subsea Connectors. Power can be supplied to the motors through Subsea Connectors or Highly reliable Oily Tube Connections.
SME’s extensive testing facilities ensure we can test these Subsea Pumps at rated Voltage and Frequency. This testing includes involve Hydraulic Performance/Relibility testing on a HPU or Job Specific Electrical Supply at rated Voltage and Frequency in our Test tank. Full string testing involving the Drives, Control Gear, Motor and Driven equipment can also be organised.
Submersible Motor Engineering’s extensive Service Capability also ensures we are best location for Service and Refurbishment of Subsea Motors and Pumps of any manufacturer. Quite often SME can return motors and pumps to their clients in a better than new condition due to our ability to implement the latest Engineering Practices into the repair process.
