Nidec ASI chosen as partner to supply new high-efficiency motors for pumping stations


Milan, 22 February 2024 – Nidec ASI, part of the Motion & Energy Division of the Nidec Group, has been chosen by SIOT – Società italiana per l’oleodotto transalpino S.p.A., part of the TAL Group -as a partner in the TAL pipeline efficiency project that transports oil from Trieste to Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic.

This is one of the most important infrastructures for the transport of oil in Europe and with its 753 km of pipelines it supplies 8 refineries in Central Europe..

Nidec ASI was entrusted with the supply of 13 medium voltage asynchronous motors. The new Nidec motors, model ET 900 V2, will reach a nominal power of 3600 KW, a 20% increase over the current infrastructure motors, and will be destined for the Italian oil pumping stations in Trieste, Cavazzo and Paluzza.

Nidec proved to be the ideal partner, through its technologies, to meet the stringent technical requirements of the TAL group and the oil industry, which demand higher levels of efficiency, low starting current, high adaptability and resistance to operating temperatures, power factor optimization and a significant reduction in vibration.

The installation of the engines by Nidec is scheduled for 2024 , and this phase, working closely with the pump OEM and the TAL Group’s operations functions, will be speeded up by the adaptation of the motor’s dimensions in the onshore placement and all the machine’s power interfaces.


“We are enthusiastic to have signed an agreement to supply our engines for a strategic infrastructure that will continue to play such a key role in the distribution of hydrocarbons on the European continent.” said Dominique Llonch, CEO of Nidec ASI. “ We have been chosen for the added value of our technologies, which will ensure the efficiency of the pipeline’s pumping centers by increasing the availability and cost-effectiveness of the energy as well as improving the safety of the oil plants.”


“Once again we are proud to create new partnerships and work with a local excellence with international experience in technology,” stated Alessio Lilli, President and CEO of Siot and General Manager of the TAL Group.
