FlexEnergy, Inc. Boosts Distribution in North America
FlexEnergy, Inc., a technology company that designs and manufactures innovative gas turbine systems like synchronous generator-based micro-turbines, announced that it has partnered with Waukesha-Pearce Industries (WPI). Since 1924, this construction solutions company has partnered with manufacturers to provide equipment and service solutions across a multitude of applications. This new relationship with WPI will allow FlexEnergy to distribute turbine technology throughout the Marcellus Shale gas region in the Eastern US. It will also allow them to support end users in oil and gas, gas compression, power generation, and mechanical drive applications.
“WPI’s long history as a leading distributor of power generation equipment in North America adds significant breadth and depth to FlexEnergy’s domestic reach,” says Andrew Seys-Llewellyn, director of Business Development for FlexEnergy. “From the outset, the WPI team understood the advantages of Flex technology over micro-turbines from other manufacturers, and identified the value Flex technology can bring to their clients.”
Because this technology company shares its turbine technology with larger, traditional turbines instead of relying on power electronics used by manufacturers, its partnership with WPI will allow them to provide the highest possible reliability that will translate to unrivalled uptime in the field while optimizing production economics.
The relationship between WPI and FlexEnergy will initially integrate service support across a number of shared clients in the Marcellus Shale gas region, before expanding to offshore applications in the Gulf of Mexico.
WPI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pearce Industries Inc. FlexEnergy, on the other hand, is a privately held, New Hampshire-based business that manufactures small gas turbines that provides reliable, low maintenance, and low emissions electricity and heat to customers globally. By combining forces with WPI, FlexEnergy will be able to greatly expand their customer base. This is especially true since the companies’ partnership follows a record year for shipments of FlexEnergy’s turbines, with 2014 shipments almost triple those of 2013.
