DeepStar awards magnetic ESP project to Upwing and Mitsubishi

Upwing Energy, an artificial lift technology company, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), one of the world’s leading industrial firms, have been awarded the next phase of the Magnetic Drive System (MDS) project by DeepStar, a global offshore research and development consortium.
