Aggreko Awarded for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship

Share

Aggreko plc, the global leader in rental power, heating and cooling, has been recognized by Texas Oil & Gas Awards with its award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship for the company’s custom Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions control technology that helps reduce NOx emissions on temporary large-scale natural gas power plants.

Launched in 2012, the Texas Oil & Gas Awards showcases the great gains being made by upstream, midstream and downstream companies in key areas of corporate social responsibility, the environment, and health and safety. The awards enable companies to celebrate their achievement and demonstrate their commitment to these critical industry issues.

“We are gratified to be recognized with this prestigious award for the work we did for a new cryogenic gas processing facility in the Permian Basin of West Texas,” said Charles Royce, Managing Director, North America. “The job called for us to not only meet state emissions regulations, but also Federal regulations, which meant we had to reduce NOx emissions by 75%. We are helping our customers in their transition to new realities of global energy markets. Globally, the energy sector is going through a major transition; the challenge today is to find the optimal way to secure more energy, affordably and sustainably.”

The Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship recognizes efforts, initiatives or technological developments that have minimized or eliminated their environmental footprint within the region. Organizations working in the oil and gas sector that can demonstrate making a positive contribution to the advancement of environmental considerations are eligible. Award winners must demonstrate true innovation in tracking environmental impact, implementation of practices or technology proving environmental benefit, and must demonstrate clear practical application of the solution or initiative in the region and long-term environmental benefits which are also economically sustainable.

Aggreko was awarded for its emissions control technology that surpassed emissions regulations and successfully reduced the NOx emissions up to 90% and Hydro-Carbon, CO and particulate emissions reduction up to 80%, a true first of its kind in the world of Temporary Rental Power Generation. Aggreko’s engineering team designed a 2-phase approach. Phase 1 included 26MW of Natural Gas power generation. Additionally, a custom-built set of SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) units were retrofitted atop the exhaust stack of each of the 25 natural gas generators in Phase 1. To ensure the emissions and the overall performance of the system could be monitored in real-time, Aggreko brought in its overseas SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) colleagues for additional support. The ability of the cryogenic plant to utilize its own field gas for fuel also meant that fewer trucks needed to drive the roads to deliver fuel to the site, further reducing costs, and also helping to reduce traffic congestion and preserve the roads. This 26MW temporary power plant with custom-built SCR units and SCADA is a first of its kind and has set the benchmark for clean-burning, large-scale power plants moving forward.

ViiV Healthcare Announces US FDA Approval for Rukobia (fostemsavir), a First-in-Class Treatment for HIV in Adults With Few Treatment Options Available2.7.2020 23:39:00 EESTPress release

ViiV Healthcare, the global specialist HIV company majority owned by GSK, with Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi Limited as shareholders, today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Rukobia (fostemsavir), 600 mg extended-release tablets.

Significant advances over the past few decades have dramatically improved HIV treatment and for many, HIV is considered a manageable life-long condition. However, HTE adults – which account for approximately 6% of adults living with HIV who are on treatment – have little to no options left due to resistance, tolerability or safety considerations.1 HTE adults are at risk of progressing to AIDS and
