Curtiss-Wright Applies Canned Motor Technology to Offshore Oilfield for Petrobas 

While advancements in electrification often conjure up visions of electric vehicles, they also take place in many industrial applications as electromechanical systems increasingly replace hydraulic power. A fresh example is electrification of legacy hydraulic apparatus in the offshore oilfields of Brazil. Curtiss-Wright announced in February that is has signed a technology cooperation agreement with Petroleo Brasileiro, known as Petrobas, to design, manufacture, test and provide operational support for a Subsea Canned Motor Boosting System, to be deployed mudline at a Petrobras production field in the Campos Basin.
