Aggreko provides innovative solutions for customers who require temporary power, including provision of natural gas powered generators.
Gas generators are extremely flexible, cost-efficient and meet the growing trend towards the use of natural gas for power generation.This is driven by liquid fuel cost, emissions legislation and noise concerns. Natural gas is becoming much more widely available through pipelines and LNG terminals.
Gas generator key benefits
- Cost-effective power generation
- Flexibility to quickly ramp power supply up or down
- Exceptional performance and reliability
- Reduced environmental impact
- Combined heat and power provision
- 24/7, turn-key service
Reduced environmental impact
The proven ‘lean burn’ reciprocating gas engine technology is utilised in Aggreko’s robust design gas generators. These heavy-duty, spark-arrested, turbo-charged, after-cooled engines have a purpose-built alternator which is suitable for continuous operation in harsh environment. The patented fuel system and advanced engine design ensure emission regulations are met as they are highly efficient with a virtually smoke-free operation.
Compared to diesel generators, gas generators have a much lower sulphur, NOx and greenhouse gas emission content.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) benefits
The Aggreko gas power solution allows customers to use heat generated by the natural gas powered units, to produce hot water for the customers’ own CHP units. This can be vital in many processing environments in creating added saving for the customer. This facility supports combined heat and power strategies, without the need for long term capital investment in new plant.
An alternative energy source
Gas generators are an alternative energy source, which can provide cheaper, more flexible electricity for companies that may be paying a high price for fixed electricity tariffs.
