Worldwide Power Products Expands Rental Product Line to Include Natural Gas Engines; Helps Operators in Rural Locations Secure Continuous Power; Eliminate Diesel Fuel Expense
Houston, TX, (August 26, 2013)—Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to industrial and petroleum clients worldwide, today debuted a rental program for its inventory of highly efficient used and rebuilt natural gas generator sets, including a number of rebuilt gas compression engines. WPP’s natural gas rental and purchase solutions offer operators considerable savings over diesel generators, especially if the gas that powers the engine is recaptured well-head gas normally wasted through flaring.
“In the oil and gas industry, companies often perform operations far from the nearest electrical grid. Until now, their primary option for power has been to rent or purchase a diesel generator set,” said WPP VP of Sales & Engineering Dave Vennie. “Generating power with a natural gas engine can reduce fuel expenses by 50% or more, with the greatest savings being realized by companies that have access to a freely available source of natural gas, such as by-product gas.”
WPP can rent or lease operators a generator, enabling them to pay for their power equipment on a monthly basis. If operators prefer to purchase a generator, they can purchase a rebuilt, factory certified model―often for as little as half the price of a new one. In addition to providing the natural gas generators themselves, WPP can also package custom skids for operators and deliver them to the desired location, then set up the generators and other components. Maintenance and service is included in the monthly cost of any generator WPP rents or leases, and purchasers of rebuilt models are also eligible to purchase maintenance and service plans.
“Some of these operators will never need permanent power, or they are in areas where it would take months―if not years―for the utility companies to provide power to the area,” said Vennie. “There is a huge demand for cost-saving natural gas generators, and we’re seeing interest in all kilowatt sizes.”
