Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to industrial and petroleum clients worldwide, has purchased an additional $3.7 million in gas generators for its rental and sales inventory.
“The demand for power generation is rising rapidly, not only due to natural disasters and other unexpected needs but also for oil and gas, mining, and other companies operating in remote locations around the globe,” said Marcello Lo Cicero, WPP’s director of Latin America and Rental. “Natural gas is a plentiful fuel source that offers undeniable benefits for companies needing to generate their own power on a continuous or emergency basis, or in cases where gas is readily available making it a cost-effective alternative to diesel.”
The benefits to which Lo Cicero refers include reduced levels of emissions, lower fuel costs, and fuel-source flexibility. Each of the generators will be able to burn propane or natural gas from storage tanks, as well as natural gas directly from a pipeline and, in some cases, from cleaned and filtered wellhead gas.
