Gas generators: Tractafric innovates on its markets

Tractafric Equipment recently signed an agreement with Maurel & Prom, a specialist in oil and natural gas extraction, for the sale of 4.3 MW CAT/MWM gas generators – the most powerful in the range – to supply power to Onal oil field in Gabon. The deal follows the sale of two equally powerful gas generators to Maurel & Prom in late 2014.

These contracts mark Tractafric Equipment’s introduction of the CAT/MWM range of natural gas generators on its markets. The generators are unique in that they run on gas extracted from the field, which limits gas flaring – a technology in line with environmental concerns expressed in our markets, and which meets the needs of many sectors: industry, oil platforms, hospitals, airports and more.
