Recently, Spartan Controls Ltd. and Westgen Technologies Inc. were pleased to announce that Spartan is now providing Westgen’s remote power generation and compressed air solutions to customers in Western Canada.
“Partnering with Westgen Technologies is a strategic addition to our portfolio of products and solutions that help to reduce methane emissions associated with wellsites,” said Barry Blight, Vice President, Automation Solutions, Spartan Controls. “We look forward to our partnership with an innovative organization founded and based in Western Canada.”
Westgen’s EPOD is a proprietary remote power generation and instrument air system that can eliminate fuel gas pneumatics from upstream natural gas production. The EPOD’s hybrid solar/natural gas generation solution can reduce emissions by up to 99.5% while reducing both capital and operating costs. The EPOD is designed to meet Alberta government protocols and earns carbon credits in both new wellsite and retrofit applications.
“As an Alberta-based cleantech company, Westgen recognizes the importance of working with companies like Spartan Controls who share our values and commitment to innovative and practical solutions that can help make Canada a leader in net-zero energy production. The teams at Spartan Controls and Westgen are looking forward to working with the industry’s leading energy producers to reach new levels of environmentally responsible oil and gas production in Canada,” said Connor O’Shea, President, Westgen Technologies Inc.
