Autonomy for oil & gas infrastructures
Areas crossed by pipelines can have enormous dimensions. With maintenance intervals every 10,000 hours and telemonitoring options, Sunfire-Remote brings autonomy to the infrastructure that keeps pipelines running.
Sunfire-Remote is a straightforward solution. The compact power generators can be easily integrated into existing systems. They are an unobtrusive power supply that is not very susceptible to vandalism.
With long maintenance intervals and remote monitoring, off-grid power supply requires significantly less effort than with comparable technologies – such as thermoelectric or diesel generators.
Your pipeline is affected by ice? Integrated into a thermal-managed housing, Sunfire-Remote can withstand harsh climatic conditions. It reliably works in a temperature range between -40 and +55 °C.
Sunfire-Remote is a compact off-grid solution. The fuels needed for operation can be obtained very easily – as the pipeline which provides them with natural gas is already connected. In case of propane use, a standard tank serves as fuel storage.
For several years, Sunfire-Remote has been reliably providing off-grid power to pipeline infrastructures. Even under extreme conditions. Several units are installed at natural gas pipelines in Russia, where they withstand frost, snow and ice.
Northern Ural Mountains
To prove robustness, hardly any other place in the world is as suitable as Siberia. In the Northern Ural Mountains, Sunfire-Remote has replaced thermoelectric generators since 2013. The innovative devices provided power to protect gas pipelines against corrosion – at temperatures of
-45 ° C, but also at + 40 ° C.
Russia is crisscrossed by a gigantic network of pipelines. In the south of the country, Sunfire-Remote was used to generate electricity to operate safety shut-off valves for several years. The fuel gas required was directly supplied from the high-pressure pipelines.
