Aggreko’s Flare Gas Recovery System

APG volumes can change over a project’s lifetime, and geological study estimates at the feasibility stage are rarely accurate. Thus, our flexible offering is an ideal solution for operators. We can match gas availability over the project lifetime and our equipment can be adjusted to match a wide range, including varying gas compositions.

While the quality of the some APG can prevent its use directly in our generators –such as high H2S or high-water content or low methane content. In most cases, these can be overcome with our in-house expert application knowledge and sophisticated engineering capabilities.

We can engineer a bespoke solution to match your individual needs and provide full turnkey, dependable solutions while ensuring power reliability and the highest safety standards are maintained.
