ISRI member AmeriMex Motor & Controls, a subsidiary of member Industrial Service Solutions (ISS), has announced the sale of 60 Power Cubes to U.S. Well Services. The companies are all based in Houston. Each Power Cube contains two 3,000-horsepower electric motors, two variable frequency drives, a power transformer, and other components that combine to create a self-contained power center.

“Whether it is in oil and gas, manufacturing, or the other numerous industrial markets we service, our organization has the engineering and expertise to provide the right power solutions,” says Bill Tigner, ISS vice president of recycling technologies. “Uptime reliability is what makes us stand apart from other motor and drive suppliers. Just as in the U.S. Well application, that reliability demand correlates perfectly with the needs of our customers in the automobile shredding industry.”

ISS designs, engineers, and manufactures motors and drives. The company also rebuilds AC and DC motors and drives. It employs 2,500 at over 45 locations. In support of the scrap metal industry, ISS offers complete stationary shredders including castings and wear parts, AmeriMex motors and controls, emission controls, shredder-explosion mitigation, the Taurus line of scrap shears and balers, and ZB Group’s Thor mobile shredder line.

U.S. Well Services is a leading provider of hydraulic fracturing services and a market leader in electric fracture stimulation. The company’s patented electric frac technology provides one of the first fully electric, mobile well-stimulation systems powered by locally-supplied natural gas, including field gas sourced directly from the wellhead.

“We are proud to be able to provide the state-of-the-art Power Cubes on which U.S. Well Services’ Clean Fleet® Technology relies,” ISS CEO Wade Stockstill says. “We look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with U.S. Well Services, and working with their team to develop patented technology that is revolutionizing the industry through better performance and reduced emissions.”
