Ingersoll Rand Energy Systems Signs Agreement With Dresser-Rand 09/25/2006 DAVIDSON, NC (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- Dresser-Rand Company (D-R) will be a global distributor to the oil and gas market of Ingersoll Rand's microturbine product line, as well as provide a service support network, under the terms of an agreement signed between Ingersoll Rand Energy Systems and D-R. "These products offer solid economic and environmental advantages which, when combined with D-R's strong client relationships, sales channels and marketing and service infrastructures, will provide a strong value proposition for our clients in the oil and gas industries," said James Heid, vice president, Global Business Solutions at D-R. "The Ingersoll Rand microturbine line is a good fit to complement our existing product offerings, and aligns with D-R's overall strategic growth objectives." Ingersoll Rand microturbines are designed to operate on associated on-site gas to meet the economic and environmental requirements of oil and gas producing operations. In addition to power savings, which can be achieved by operating the microturbines with associated gases, the system eliminates potentially environmentally harmful flaring and helps reduce greenhouse emissions. Energy Systems' line of industrial-quality turbines provides a reliable source of power in 70 kW or 250 kW packages. Multiple microturbines can be configured to match requirements up to several megawatts. The 250 kW microturbine is the first and only microturbine to be certified by the California Air Resources Board 2007 emissions standards for distributed generation technologies. To meet these standards, the 250 kW microturbine had to pass a stringent set of emission limits comparable to the Best Available Control Technology standards used in larger central power plants.
