Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Tucson Embedded Systems, Inc. (TES) in partnership with Green Field Energy Services received high accolades by World Oil as a 2013 World Oil Award winner for their collaboration on turbine-powered fracturing pump technology.
Green Field Energy Services was honored for the World Oil Award in the 2013 New Horizons Idea category for their Turbine Fracturing Pumps which use patent-pending Tucson Embedded Systems' Technology. In 2012, Green Field Energy Services selected TES’s iDEC system to power these pumps and with TES' engineering support adapted the Tucson company’s iDEC units to successfully run on 100 percent field gas.
This revolutionary technology makes it simpler for customers to convert from diesel to natural gas as a fuel source.
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Tucson Embedded Systems to develop a turbine-driven system that gives our customers the most innovative solutions for their fracturing operations,” said Rick Fontova, president of Green Field Energy Services.
While iDEC systems have traditionally been used in avionics, the TES iDEC assembly is the only one of its kind in that it adapts the use of turbines to be used in other industrial settings. In 2010, Tucson Embedded Systems developed and began manufacturing iDEC units for use in turbine-powered pumping equipment used in hydraulic fracturing operations.
TES's universal iDEC unit offers an enhanced engine control and safety system unique to power plants to improve reliability and expand drilling extraction methods, allowing turbines to run efficiently on natural gas or diesel fuel.
“We are proud to offer partners in the oil and gas industry, like Green Field Energy Services, a product for harvesting onsite natural gas safely and efficiently,” said David Crowe, president and co-founder of Tucson Embedded Systems.
TES' universal iDEC unit improves drilling extraction methods by allowing turbines to run efficiently on natural gas or diesel fuel compared to the industries traditionally mixed power. Based on current energy prices, by using 100 percent field gas instead of diesel, an operator can lower its fueling costs by up to 88 percent. In addition to environmental benefits, the iDEC unit reduces emissions and delivery traffic.
