Off-Grid Mines, Industrial Plants, Pipelines, Military Bases
Terrajoule systems can eliminate 80% to 100% of diesel consumption for installations that need electricity around the clock and throughout the year. The payback is fast, and the systems are straightforward to deploy and maintain.
Performs like a Diesel Generator – without the Fuel Expense
The purpose of replacing diesel electricity generation with Terrajoule is to dramatically reduce operating expense and increase reliability and security, with a rapid financial payback.
Terrajoule systems are robust and produce high quality power that responds quickly to changes in load. Like a diesel engine, Terrajoule power is generated by a rotating mass (with a flywheel) that drives an AC electricity generator. There are no inverters, so Terrajoule power integrates smoothly with a single load or site power grid.
The payback will usually be quick, well under 5 years. The best payback is with a system sized to offset 80% to 100% of diesel consumption, depending on the site conditions and economics. In most cases the system will retain the existing diesel generator, so that the diesel and steam systems back each other up for enhanced reliability and availability.
