09/18/2013 | HIPOWER SYSTEMS Performs First Successful Test for New Natural Gas Generator; Units to Provide Superior Performance for Remote Oil & Gas Ope
HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power-generation and power distribution equipment worldwide, announced today at the High Horsepower Summit in Chicago that it has completed the first successful test of its new HRNG-165 and HRNG-230 natural gas generators. The generators, which will soon be on display for preorder at partner locations, are specifically engineered to stand up to the rigors of remote oil and gas operations.
“With the rapid growth of natural gas production as result of horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracking and pipeline delivery operations in remote locations, generators are the prime solution for power generation,” said HIPOWER SYSTEMS President Rafael Acosta. “Our reliable portable power units ensure that oil field operators achieve their production goals. In the event a primary generator fails HIPOWER generators can offer redundancy systems through paralleling switchgear installed on board, operations can continue without a hitch. Furthermore, these units have been designed to be exceedingly durable, thereby reducing failure rates and optimizing engine life and ROI.”In addition to their durability, these HIPOWER SYSTEMS generators are integrated with MasterTrak, a telematics asset and fleet management tool that communicates directly with the engine and other components to provide equipment data. It lets operators (or their service companies) monitor faults and alerts remotely and in real-time, resolving engine problems and reducing costly unexpected failures.
“Through our network of dealer partners, HIPOWER SYSTEMS is now taking pre-orders for the generators,” said Acosta. “We are geared up to manufacture more than 300 fully custom-configurable natural gas units over the next year, and we can deliver them in 75-90 days―much faster than our competitors.”
