INNIO Gen-sets Used For Flare Mitigation

By Jack Burke10 September 2020

Crusoe Energy Systems, a Denver, Colorado, USA-based energy company, has selected INNIO Waukesha natural gas engine generator sets for its digital flare mitigation systems. The systems use Waukesha’s VHP9504GSI Series Five genset packages to convert flared natural gas into electrical power used by mobile, modular data centers on the well site.

Crusoe has deployed more than 30 DFM modules throughout the US states of North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, with Waukesha engine generators powering a large portion of that fleet. INNIO Waukesha is on pace to deploy about 40 MW of generation capacity in cooperation with Crusoe by early 2021, primarily in the Bakken oilfields in North Dakota and Montano. Each unit features INNIO Waukesha’s myPlant asset performance management system for remote monitoring.

Cully Cavness, the president and co-founder of Crusoe, said “many of the flaring situations we encounter require solutions at a scale of hundreds of thousands to millions of cubic feet of gas per day. Our technical and engineering teams worked closely with INNIO Waukesha to identify, specify and configure a large-capacity rich burn engine capable of managing the rigors, variability and scale of flaring in the modern energy industry. Today INNIO Waukesha is an integral part in our mission to eliminate natural gas flaring and reduce emissions through large-scale DFM projects.”
