Extremely well suited for use in remote areas such as in the Oil & Gas industry.
The Free Piston Stirling Engine technology, due to its maintenance-free character, is extremely well suited for use in remote areas such as in the Oil & Gas, Telecom and Railway industry. Especially in northern regions where solar power is not a year round option the technology is a powerful solution. In cooperation with our partners in Canada and Russia different Oil & Gas applications have been developed and are currently being introduced.
One application focuses specifically on pipelines. A weatherproof container housing several engines secures and an intelligent control system powers the Cathodic Protection, SCADA, Telecommunications and Valve control functions on natural gas transport pipe sections. A modular system based on 1 kW or multiples hereof is available.
Another system focuses on providing power on oil well sites. With its external combustion principle the Stirling engine is very well suited for using the well gas which in most of the cases is now flared or combusted.
