STATESVILLE, N.C. — Doosan Portable Power has introduced the company’s first natural gas mobile generators. The new NG160, NG225 and NG295 natural gas-powered generators combine the ability to operate on wellhead natural gas with rugged, reliable features that ensure performance in remote locations and harsh environments. The natural gas generators are ideal for use in oil and gas exploration, site preparation and production, water well drilling, industrial plants and as auxiliary or maintenance power in factory settings.
Doosan natural gas generators are equipped with an automatic dual-fuel switch, allowing the generator to operate on natural gas, as well as propane from an external tank. This ensures continuous generator operation in the event that wellhead gas flow is interrupted or unavailable.
A patent-pending Onboard Scrubber System improves machine performance by removing excess dirt and water from wellhead gas. It includes a heated drain valve to prevent water removed from the gas from freezing in the hose — an event that could disrupt the flow of natural gas and possibly cause the machine to shut down. This allows more uptime and fewer calls to a service technician. The system is fully enclosed to protect it against harsh weather, possible damage during shipping and vibration that would occur if attached to the drawbar.
“Our natural gas generators are another testament to the expertise of Doosan Portable Power, especially in the oil and gas markets,” said Todd Howe, global generator products manager, Doosan Portable Power. “These generators were designed with innovative features that reduce downtime and cut operating costs. The units can operate on excess wellhead natural gas, eliminating the cost for diesel fuel, as well as the expense of transporting diesel to the site.”
An oil level maintainer allows for extended run time. Generator diagnostics and uptime are also supported by a telematics system that allows fleet and service managers to remotely observe machine use and performance in secluded or difficult-to-monitor locations. Telematics come standard on Doosan natural gas generators; advanced satellite options are available for machines in isolated locations.
Doosan natural gas generators deliver ultimate fuel efficiency while meeting environmental regulations on emissions and containment. The units offer 110 percent containment, eliminating the possibility of a costly spill.
Dual frequency and optional voltage make Doosan natural gas generators the most versatile in the market. Operators can select 50 Hz or 60 Hz, with the simple flip of a switch and choose between 480 V and 600 V alternator output.
Additional Doosan benefits include rugged running gear, galvannealed enclosure, and at-a-glance control panel monitoring that indicates whether the generator is operating on natural gas or propane.
Doosan NG160, NG225 and NG295 natural gas-powered generators are now available.
