In an exclusive contract, GDEP will supply pumps across four USWS fleets. The pumps for USWS’ new fleets can be run at 3,000 horsepower, which maximizes efficiency by increasing the flow rate across a smaller number of units compared to conventional 2,500 horsepower fleets.
“By partnering closely with USWS and understanding their operational goals, GDEP developed a 3,000 horsepower pump uniquely designed for their Nyx Clean Fleet,” said Tony McLain, vice president of sales, GDEP. “We will be placing two 3,000 horsepower pumps on one trailer, to make a total of 6,000 horsepower per trailer. Each 6,000 horsepower Nyx trailer will take the place of 2.5 conventional diesel units. This is a strategic step forward as we help our customers reduce their environmental footprint and improve operational efficiencies.”
Kyle O’Neill, USWS president and CEO, said: “We are excited to partner with GDEP to deliver the highest quality pressure pumping equipment available in our industry today. By using these custom engineered pumps, we expect to improve the reliability and lifespan of our pumps while providing high efficiency for our customers and reducing total maintenance costs.”
