Less than 4 week delivery on Toshiba 300MVi medium voltage VFD
EMA is expecting delivery on a brand new 2000 HP Toshiba 300 MVi 4160 volt Medium Voltage VFD in less than 4 weeks. The medium voltage drive will be sold on a first come first serve basis. Call us at 800-848-2504.
EMA is proud to stock, sell, and repair Toshiba Medium Voltage Drives.
The T300MVi Medium Voltage Adjustable Speed Drive is the most advanced medium voltage VFD in the industry. We don’t think any other drive in the market compares. It has a PWM 5-level design, which allows for a smaller size, reduced component count and a lower cost. The T300MVi can use the existing motors and is works with all power systems. In addition, it is one of the safest Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drives on the market. (Read about the Medium Voltage Drive market)
The drive has a built in disconnect, vacuum contactors, and transformer, which allows for much lower installation costs. VFDs save substantial energy and on higher horsepower applications, the paybacks can be tremendous.

Did you Bring Me any Cigars?
09/14/09 @ 19:12
In the shop one morning everyone was standing around visiting and one of the bosses asked if anyone had any fracturing experience? I naturally said yes, that I had been on a frac crew out of Monahans earlier in my career. I was instantly put in charge of the acid and frac department in Aberdeen, Scotland. I was so stupid. Not only do I have to do cementing, I also have to go out on the acid and frac jobs, too. In the Scottish North Sea the rig would drill through about five different pay zones and we had to Drill Stem Test, squeeze acid into the formation and then DST it again. We would then set an EZSV and squeeze cement under and drop good cement on top of the plug. We would then come out of the hole and go back in to perforate the next formation and work your way up the hole until all formations were treated and tested. When you went on this type of job, you stayed a while. There was no such thing as relief. What’s that? I was fortunate to be involved in all of this work. These were the best people and the newest technology at the time. Halliburton liked to keep me offshore because I just might mix it up a little while I’m in town. It seemed that every time I did get to town either London or Aberdeen needed me. I was on the Odin Drill for Phillips doing this DST and acid work. Phillips had another rig in the area and wanted me to go over there with my friend from Angola named Jerry that worked for Otis. On these offshore rigs they always have a stand-by boat or there is a supply boat available to use as a taxi. Jerry and I got on the basket to be lifted off this huge drilling rig onto the supply boat about 90 ft. down on calm seas. These baskets are made like a rope latter with about one foot squares knotted together to form a basket. You put your luggage inside and you stand on the outside so if the crane operator drops you in the drink you can get away and not go down with the basket. There is a tire around the outside to stand on and then you hang on to the rope ladder. It was the perfect day for a boat ride in the North Sea. The sea was like glass and you felt safe even though sometimes this sea is a real killer. I have seen 90 ft. waves that break over the Schlumberger unit at the end of the catwalk and coat the rig floor with sea water. But today, it was laid back cool and very pretty. I really don’t remember the name of this rig but I do remember the tool pusher. He was operating the crane and dropped the basket over the side and picked Jerry and I up like an old pro. Even in calm seas you need very good depth perception. He brought us up really fast and stopped us with a jolt right in front of the cab of the crane. He was smoking a cigar and was dirty. He had not shaved and he really looked mean. He said, “Did You Bring Me Any Cigars?” Jerry and I looked at each other and then at the tool pusher and I said, “No sir, we didn’t knooooow”. He just shook his head and smiled at us as he released the brake that was holding our basket in place. I just thought that we had gone up fast. The trip down was REALLY fast. There was slack in the cable and we were really going down when he began to catch us. He must have dropped us at least 50 to 60 ft. I must say that he did a wonderful job of saving me just after he nearly killed me. I needed off of this basket and have my feet on some kind of ground and my hands around his neck. He brought Jerry and I back up. For some reason he thought he was real funny. He hung us out there on the basket until we both promised not to kill him. We also had to promise to bring him cigars when we came back. He could see that we really were going to kill him if we ever got off the basket. He left the cab and let the crane operator let us down. We did not cross paths while we had our feet on something other than the basket. Today things like this can never happen. People like him can kill somebody by just playing around. The most injured I ever got while working on a drilling rig was in a water fight. We all know that accidents happen. Just don’t help them along.
