Gomel Transneft Drujba

Pumping station refurbishing (Belarus)

Customer Profile
  • The "Drujba" pipeline was built in the early sixties. It crosses the huge Russian territory and brings Siberian Crude oil to Europe via the former soviet republics of Belarus and Ukraine. Gomel Transneft is the main operating company for "Drujba" over the Belarussian territory.
  • A large pipeline modernisation programme was launched several years ago and Schneider Electric was selected as main supplier for the MV/LV electrical distribution equipment and Motor Control Centre (MCC). Six pumping stations have been fully modernised over the past 4 years.

Customer objectives
  • Supply the full electrical distribution equipment (Medium and Low Voltage) as well as the motor control centres to replace the existing facilities.
  • Select a world leading company able to supply high-quality packaged solutions, engineering and services, to work as a partner and to provide reliable products and technical support during the whole modernisation program.

Customer benefits
  • Permanent and close assistance to the design company and the end user.
  • An offer adapted to customers' needs and complying with specific local standards (GOST) and habits.
  • On site training programme for local maintenance and operating technicians.

Implementation Methodology
  • In April 2000: first refurbishment contract for the Pinsk substation, followed by the Kobrin substation in May 2000. The Turov, Mozyr, Bobovitchi and Zaschebie substations were then awarded to Schneider Electric for the quality of its offer and equipment. The competitive prices, the continuous work of Schneider Ukraine and Bielorussia, the different quality procedures and the compliance with technical requirements (SF6 breaking imposed for 6 kV overvoltage motor protection) and local standards (GOST R and BLR) meant we were able to rise above our competitors.
  • With the signature of this latest contract, Schneider Electric will have supplied all the Electrical Distribution and Control & Command equipment for the entire pipeline.
