BP is to install Flex Energy turbines as part of a greenhouse gas emissions reduction project at its Wamsutter, Wyo., water disposal facility.

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.
