FlexEnergy Announces Multiple Unit Order for New York Hospital
Portsmouth, N.H., June 15, 2016 – FlexEnergy Inc announced today that it received an order for three GT333S natural gas microturbine generators for a New York Hospital. Quad Energy, FlexEnergy’s distributor for New York secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in the fall, 2016.
“FlexEnergy’s highly efficient and extremely low emission microturbines are an important part of many organizations long term energy efficiency strategies, and an important way to reduce harmful emissions that have a negative effect on our environment,” said Mark Schnepel, President and Chief Executive Officer at FlexEnergy.
The clean burning natural gas-fueled GT333S microturbine’s will be installed in a combined heat and power application to produce 75% of the facility’s electric power and 125 psi steam using a co-fired steam boiler. The combined 1MW system will operate in a grid connect configuration at over 80 percent system efficiency, which will significantly lower the site’s grid reliance and reduce the company’s carbon footprint. The system is also capable of operating independent of the electricity grid and will also provide necessary emergency power to the hospital in cases of electricity grid interruption.
“FlexEnergy’s tried and proven synchronous generator design allows our products to seamlessly provide power to the buildings critical loads in the event of an electric utility interruption,” said Douglas Demaret, FlexEnergy’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our use of proven power generation technology allows us to be the only microturbine manufacturer capable of offering this important benefit,” added Mr. Demaret.
The FlexEnergy based cogeneration system will result in a 90% reduction in Nox and CO emissions compared with traditional energy sources.

About FlexEnergy Inc.
FlexEnergy is a privately-held, New Hampshire-based manufacturer of the highest quality and most robust small gas turbines available in their class. FlexEnergy’s 250kW and 333kW cogeneration combined heat and power (CHP) gas turbines provide highly reliable, low maintenance, and low emissions electricity and heat to global customers, often in remote areas where the electric grid can be unreliable, expensive, or altogether absent. Developed over the course of two decades by Ingersoll Rand before being acquired by FlexEnergy in 2010, Flex turbine technology features a highly robust synchronous generator for larger gas turbines. Uniquely capable of handling varying or cycling loads in remote oil field power generation, this offers significant advantages in the field and allows for the combustion of a wider range of gases, including flare gas.
