PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FlexEnergy announced today that it received an order for two GT333S microturbine generators to power an industrial facility in Puerto Rico. Tetrad Energy, FlexEnergy's distributor for Puerto Rico will own and operate the system as part of a power purchase agreement with the industrial customer.
Mark Schnepel, President and Chief Executive Officer of FlexEnergy, said, "Puerto Rico and the Caribbean region is an important part of our companies strategic growth plan. This geographic region is a good fit for our products as electric rates continue to increase and the price of propane and natural gas fuels remain at all time lows."
The customer was looking for an energy solution that would improve their reliability, while also reducing their monthly energy costs. The two propane-fueled GT333S turbines will be installed in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system designed to provide electric power to the facilities while using the exhaust energy to generate steam.
"Our customer required an efficient and robust system as electric power in Puerto Rico can be unpredictable and subject to interruptions. We chose FlexEnergy products due to their unmatched reliability," said Luigi Hernandez, Director of Business Development for Tetrad Energy. "Additionally our customer required the system to be highly efficient while also being a clean source of energy. These requirements made our choice of FlexEnergy's products an easy one," added Mr. Hernandez.
"In light of recent events in Puerto Rico, energy reliability and efficiency will be key for local business in order to maintain operation during electricity outages while also controlling rising energy costs," said Douglas Demaret, FlexEnergy's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We are pleased to be able to partner with Tetrad Energy to provide efficient and reliable solutions for their customers."
