Remote electronic monitoring, control, and communication equipment is critical for oil & gas operations. Providing power in these remote locations is a challenge.
Batteries run flat. Solar panels don’t work in snow. Generators need a fuel source and require frequent refueling. For oil & natural gas companies, finding a reliable and rugged small power source is extremely challenging.
Existing technologies have limitations. Thermoelectric generators are widely used in the oil & gas industry. They operate on propane, are rugged, and require minimal servicing. But thermoelectric generators are inefficient - only 3 to 6 percent of the fuel is converted into electricity. And frequently trucking propane into remote locations is expensive.
SAFCell has developed a remote area power system that's fuel efficient, rugged, and maintenance free. Our RP-50-M system operates on the same industrial grade methanol that's used at wellheads. No more propane.
Using a rugged military spec design, the RP-50-M is built for rough oil & natural gas field conditions from Canadian winters to Texas summers. No more high installation costs.
The RP-50-M utilizes our Solid Acid Fuel Cell technology, meaning there are virtually no moving parts and it's maintenance free. No more expensive overhauls.
