Many utility providers and grid operators face many challenges when their equipment is nearing the end of its lifecycle and they have to rely on outdated and unreliable assets. Some of these challenges are the increase of overall operating and maintenance costs and environmental issues. Through our efficiency enhancement capabilities, our latest gas turbine technology can displace aging power generation infrastructure in order to secure significant fuel costs savings, ensure superior reliability and efficiency while meeting emission requirements. Using compact but power-dense turbine technology, our low emission turbines optimize space, in some instances the layout can use a third of the space needed for an equivocal output diesel reciprocating engine plant, ensuring a small footprint without sacrificing any generated output.
In some situations, a temporary solution for a shortage of power is required before a permanent solution can finally be implemented. Bridging power allows you to have critical power even while your new facilities are being maintained, replaced, upgraded, or constructed. With bridging power solutions from APR Energy, you can have fast access to reliable and affordable power, with minimized interruptions or delays. We can even provide you with temporary and permanent technologies, combined for fast track power at a levelized pricing structure.
Sometimes, cities or regions simply don’t have enough power, restricted by inefficient or inadequate transmission lines. When a utility company needs to address power shortages and blackouts, our fast track power options can be excellent solutions for distributed power needs. We can install a system that injects electricity directly into the local medium voltage distribution network, or into the main high voltage grid.
When an emergency power supply is needed after any unforeseen catastrophe, such as a natural disaster, critical equipment breakdown, or sudden power plant failure, APR Energy has the fast track power solutions needed to deliver energy wherever it is needed. We are known due to our capability to rapidly deploy, install, commission and operate our plants and have continuously been selected as the preferred provider for customers around the globe who want to benefit from our modular design, advanced technology, industry leading expertise, and on-hand inventory.
Grid Stability and Support
As more power plants around the world are shifting towards renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and hydro power, the reliability of these energy sources is unpredictable and can cause an increase in grid disturbances—as the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow. Our gas turbines make the ideal complement to intermittent renewable energy sources. APR Energy helps customers operate their facilities more efficiently with our turbines’ quick-start and synchronous condensing capabilities, making them ideal for grid stability and frequency and voltage support. Our turbines also serve as a source of spinning reserves in the event of grid failure. These solutions ultimately enable a more reliable and secure energy supply.
Traditional Power Generation
We deliver long-term generating capacity via simple- or combined-cycle power plants. These facilities can be fueled by an array of fuels such as natural gas, diesel, LNG, and LPG. APR Energy has a portfolio of large-scale power projects on five continents and with our flexibility and advanced technology, we can provide reliable power for short- and long-term needs.
