Total Cost Approach

By answering a few questions our Sales Engineers can help you estimate your total power costs including, Mobilization, Transportation, Setup, Commissioning, Fuel, and of course turbine rental costs. We can also help you access the cost of fuel infrastructure (piping & filtration) and electrical (i.e. grounding, interconnecting cabling, and utility metering).

Peterson Power Systems can provide any level of service you require, from the rental turbine alone to transportation, engineering, design, setup, operator training or operators, and balance of plant such as electrical transformers, electrical distribution, fuel handling, fuel storage, fuel filtration, etc.

  • Our Rental Gas turbines can operate on a wide range of gases and a variety of distillate (diesel) fuels. Our preferred fuel is pipeline quality natural gas (90% plus methane content), but we can also operate on low energy gaseous fuels (digester gas) and higher energy fuels that contain heavy hydrocarbons (associated gas).
  • The majority of our Rental Gas Turbines are configured with Dry Low NOx combustion systems to ensure low NOX and CO emissions. Maximum emissions when operating on pipeline quality natural gas are 25 ppm NOX and 50 ppm CO.
