A high pressure solution

In June 2005 China´s biggest oil company China National Petroleum Corp ordered six high pressure pumps from Bornemann for its oil field in Sudan.

The pumps are supposed to transfer the crude oil in a pipeline with a distance of more than 700 km from Baleaa to the refinery in Khartoum.

In view of the urgency of the start-up of the screw pumps, all equipment was transported by airfreight in April 2006 to Khartoum airport. Due to the fact that the weight for each of the six pumps set by approx. 31 tons and plenty crates for the accessories, Bornemann chartered in total three transports with the Russian aircraft ANTONOV AN-124. After the arrival in Sudan all equipment was transported by truck to their final destination.
