Hubbell Electric Heater Company, a leading manufacturer of Marine/Offshore qualified water heaters located in Stratford, CT, announced today that the company has been awarded the water heater contract for the habitation module for the latest offshore drilling platform owned by Mexico’s state run oil company PEMEX.
The $1M contract is for a fully integrated, skid based water heating and hot water distribution system, consisting of two 175 gallon stainless steel water heaters, one 1,100 gallon stainless steel storage tank, four pumps, and a fully automated control system. The complete package is over 25’ long, 8’ wide, 10’ high and weighs approx. 12,500 lbs.
