Modular chemical and fuel delivery systems on stand 4B 162.

Weitefeld, Germany, 3rd September 2013:
 Modular chemical delivery systems and fuel stations for harsh climates are at the core of the WEW display at Offshore Europe being held in Aberdeen from 3 to 5 September 2013. WEW is bringing its capabilities for the first time to the show on stand number 4B162. 

WEW is a systems-integrator, with modular systems encapsulating pumping and dosing, for both upstream and downstream applications. From drill-mud and completion fluid additive dosing, to MEG waste handling, WEW provides own-designed robust solutions to support both upstream and downstream markets with numerous add-ons such as telemetry, PLC/CANBus and remote-control systems

WEW draws on years of experience in the civilian logistics sector when handling, for example, temperature sensitive products over long distances, and requires accurate positioning and product condition data. WEW’s activities in defence in recent years have further enhanced this capability, yielding “real-time” operational data, including secure systems telemetry.

In the oilfield market, WEW draws on this experience to deliver a range of solutions including remote control dosing, metering and pumping in a zone 1 offshore environment.

With a payload range between 1,000 and 45,000 litres, WEW specialises in the supply of bespoke products usually within, but not limited to, an ISO footprint. Approximately 50% of its output falls outside standard ISO dimensions and many systems are multi-functional/compartment, permitting the storage, transport and dosing of numerous chemicals concurrently. The company’s expertise extends to the welding and manipulation of high-value alloys, including Hastelloy, Duplex and Inconle.

The company meets or exceed all regulatory requirements and carries ASME VIII R, U, T, as well as many national-specific certificates such as US DOT, SELO and WHG.

“Offshore Europe is a great opportunity for us to develop our well-proven business in the European oil and gas market, as well as to gather information about how our fluid logistics solutions can meet the North Sea community’s requirements. We have gained traction in the market, most notably in the US and Polar areas and we believe that our offerings are equally suitable to this,” said Peter Hughes, Business Development Manager at WEW.

“Of the numerous units we have supplied over the last two decades, not a single reportable failure has been recorded,” added Hughes.

“In recent years we have focused on integration innovation, with modular systems now encapsulating pumping, heating and preservation units, for both upstream and downstream applications. From drill-mud additive dosing, to MEG waste handling, WEW provides robust yet advanced systems to support both upstream and downstream markets.”
