Stationary Engine applications can utilise any flammable gas e.g. LPG, natural gas, or liquefied natural gas. Substitution rates vary on the gas type used and the desired performance outcome.
Typically with LPG substitution is set between 20% and 35%. With natural gas the substitution rate can be as high as 70%. The gas supply for a stationary engine installation is typically provided by bulk on-site tanks.
- Significant reductions in CO2, NOx and particulates.
- Substituting more expensive diesel with a cheaper gas delivers significant $$$ savings.
- Using a flammable gas to encourage complete combustion greatly increases the efficiency of the engine.
- Soot is the abrasive by-product of combustion. Lower soot build up extends engine life.
- Engine oil analysis allows an extension of maintenance intervals and lowers life-of-engine maintenance costs.
- The additional gas supply effectively extends the range/running time of the engine.
