Power Generation

The use of Natural Gas in the Power Generation industry is not new but is expanding. Natural Gas is preferred to coal as a cleaner burning fuel. Advances in technology allow Natural Gas to have a double impact: the gas is burnt in a combustion turbine while the exhaust gas is used to make steam and drive a steam turbine that generates electricity.

Natural Gas and AutoGas are displacing diesel and gasoline on a number of genset applications due to their costs, immediate availability, and supply. Typical gensets range from 8kW to 60kW depending on their applications, residential or commercial, and up to 4,300kW in industrial applications.

SMP’s products are a perfect fit for these types of applications.
