5 December 2016: Houston, Tx – Aggreko plc has won the Environmental Stewardship Award at the fourth annual 2016 Eagle Ford Excellence Awards luncheon, presented by the South Texas Energy and Economic Roundtable (STEER) on Nov. 30 in San Antonio, Texas.
The Environmental Stewardship Award honors companies working in the Eagle Ford who make it their obligation to preserve the environment in a responsible manner. The award was bestowed on Aggreko for the company’s power automation system that eliminates idling and reduces emissions, regardless of the fuel source. The innovative application can also save more than 60 percent in fuel costs and increases uptime, as it lowers maintenance needs and reduces failures associated with overheating and excessive idle time.
The company was recognized with the same award in 2014 for its use of natural gas power solutions in the oil patch.
“Aggreko is honored to once again be recognized by STEER for our ability to provide power solutions that aid in reducing carbon emissions to the environment,” said Mel Parker, Managing Director, Aggreko North America. “We take our role as an environmental steward very seriously and remain committed to innovating eco-friendly solutions for the energy industry.”
Aggreko’s scalable power automation systems can be retrofitted on diesel and natural gas generator sets and incorporates a hybrid battery control kit that synchronises stop and start with - programmable logic controls (PLC), tank level switches, thermostat contacts, or any other digital switches. The system is ideal for artificial lift systems (primarily rod pumps and ESPs), midstream pumping stations and de-watering facilities. For more information visit: www.us.aggreko.com.
