1kWe Ultra-Reliable Remote Power
The 1GEN, is a new form of ultra-reliable power generator based on thermo-acoustic physics. It produces 1 kW of electrical power from field gas, natural gas, or propane, with ultra-low maintenance (no sliding or rotating parts).
The 1GEN helps better equip remote off-grid well sites with power generation to eliminate pneumatic fuel gas emissions by powering air compressors and electric control.
We help our customers reach compliance with methane emission reduction regulations in the most environmentally challenging conditions.
1% of Canada's GHG emissions
comes from pneumatic driven devices in oil & gas
ELIMINATING METHANE VENTING
1GEN can cost-effectively reduce wellhead CO2e emissions by
600 tCO2e/yr/1GEN @ continuous full operation
>10 year lifetime on core engine
No sliding or rotating parts (no oil changes)
Generating the power you need, continiously
22-29% fuel-to-electric for 1kW engine
Inspired by automotive manufacturing
Glycol Heat Trace
1-3 kW thermal heat trace. Loop length is customizable based on pump choice
External burner for field gas, natural gas or propane
Easily combine 1GEN's into multi-kW power array with automatic built in redundancy
Cost-effective addition to solar power, especially in winter at more northerly latitudes. Enabling battery bank reduction and improved lifetime due to continuous load following.

At the foundation of our ultra-reliable genset lays an elegant and simple heat engine design (protected by 10x patents) made possible by using thermo-acoustic physics.
This unique approach allows us to develop an efficient continuous load following (0-1kWe) genset that outperforms competing technologies on total cost of ownership due to the long lifetime and ultra-low-maintenance.
Please contact us for more information on why we are a cost-effective alternative to current products.
