BP Wastewater Plant Installs FlexEnergy Turbines
Three Flex Turbine MT250s, have been shipped to the BP facility. The 750kW system will effectively utilize pipeline natural gas to produce continuous power in a grid-isolated environment, FlexEnergy says.
FlexEnergy turbines extract energy from low-quality methane, such as that produced by landfills, oil fields, coal mines and waste water treatment plants, and produce near-zero pollution from emissions, the FlexEnergy said.
The system will power 100 percent of the facility’s on-site loads in the absence of a utility infrastructure. The turbines exceed the highest air quality standards, the company says.
In December last year, Gammel Engineering, a German engineering company specialized in heating plants, combined heat and power plants, district heating, industrial plants and building services, signed FlexEnergy’s first commercial order for the Flex Turbine MT250 EX.
