Aggreko helped customize a scalable, temporary natural gas power solution addressing different growth phases — and shifting drill locations.
Over an 18-month timeframe, Aggreko positioned the customer’s power requirements for maximum efficiency using the micro-grid, which included four 1.3 MW containerized natural gas units.
Equipped with Aggreko Remote Monitoring (ARM) technology, which helps diagnose and proactively address any equipment-related issues, this micro-grid approach provided electricity to the field, bringing reliable, consistent power to the developing area — an approach the client could even replicate as needed, when drilling locations shift. Aggreko delivered approximately 8-10 cents/kW hour
With expertise to keep the system online and a strong track record of helping such operators position power for the long haul — Aggreko was able to deliver cost savings and help remove uncertainty regarding expansion.
Instead of multiple generator installations, Aggreko installed a central power plant with built-in redundancy and uptime comparable to the grid. The natural gas option equated to fuel savings of 75% versus diesel.
