The Flex Turbine® is the most reliable small gas turbine generator with proven high up time in harsh environmental conditions. The Flex Turbine offers best in class fuel tolerance, reliability and emissions. It provides high energy efficiency, up to 85% total, in a compact package for grid connected CHP projects. It is a great fit for prime power and with multiple units paralleled to start and run high horsepower grid independent loads. The Flex Turbine core engine is the most advanced in the industry with variable inlet guide vanes to ensure high efficiency and low emissions even when systems are running at part power.
The Flex Turbine was adapted from the Dresser Rand KG2 by Ingersoll Rand in the early 2000's. Now matured and deployed by FlexEnergy and Flex Leasing Power and Service, its performance has been proven over a decade of operations on a wide range of gases and varied environmental conditions in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
