HOUSTON, May 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Well Services (Nasdaq: USWS) ("USWS" or the "Company") today announced the next generation of its proprietary Clean Fleet® technology with the unveiling of its newly designed Nyx Clean Fleet® frac pump. Nyx will use our patented PowerCube, driving two independently controlled electric motors and frac pumps to provide 6,000 hydraulic horsepower ("HHP") on a single trailer. Based on current pricing from vendors, U.S. Well Services expects that it can deliver a Nyx Clean Fleet®, consisting of ten pump trailers totaling 60,000 HHP, two blenders and a combination switchgear for a capital cost of approximately $23 million.
The independent twin pump concept provides the same redundancy as our single electric motor units while offering a significant reduction in our wellsite footprint. Nyx allows the Company to shut down one pump or motor without affecting the second pump's ability to continue operating. For this innovative design, the Company will continue to use electric motors supplied by AmeriMex, who has provided electric motors on each of our past generations of Clean Fleet® technology. The system is designed to be powered by mobile generators, micro-grid applications, like our PowerPathTM technology, and is not only capable of using utility grid power, but is also compliant with all associated requirements. Nyx leverages USWS Analytics' cloud intelligence system that enables fast, informed operational decision making and continuously evaluates equipment health and useful life. These factors empower the Company to use predictive, conditions-based maintenance scheduling and will help reduce non-productive time to drive improved operating efficiency for our customers. The Nyx control system also provides automatic intelligent pump rate control based on the continuous monitoring of equipment health conditions.
"We are excited to bring the Nyx pump to the market," said Lon Robinson, U.S. Well Services' Chief Technology Officer. "This pump is the culmination of considerable engineering and design work with our partners at AmeriMex and Grizzly Manufacturing, and we believe it will revolutionize the electric frac market."
In Greek mythology, Nyx was the daughter of chaos and the goddess of night. Created near the beginning of time, Nyx's age and power made even the most powerful of gods fearful of her, including Zeus, the king of the gods.
U.S. Well Services is a pioneer of the E-Frac revolution and was the first to commercialize a successful electric fracturing fleet with our first generation Clean Fleet® in 2014. Inspired by our past and designed for the future, the Nyx pump is the latest innovation in Clean Fleet® technology and will be the most powerful and advanced electric fracturing solution on the market.
US Well Services Nyx Clean Fleet® Frac Unit – patented PowerCube delivers true redundancy power to two separate electric motors and pumps.
