Dynamic Gas Blending System

- Achieves up to 70% substitution while maintaining dieselperformance and safe engine operation- Closed loop control system enables maximumsubstitution over the widest load range in the industry- Maintains traditional diesel generator set power andtransient response performance- Accepts a wide range of gas quality and automaticallyadjusts to fuel quality changes, eliminating the need forfield calibration- EMCP 4.4 control panel features simplified rig integration,remote monitoring capabilities, and single point interfacefor the engine, generator, and Dynamic Gas Blendingfunctions- Leverages current hardware from G3516 product linewhile minimizing change to core diesel engine- Maintains existing diesel maintenance and overhaulintervals proven in oilfield applications

Engine Design

- Market-leading power density- Proven reliability and durability- Robust design prolongs life and lowers owning andoperating costs- Long overhaul life proven in oilfield applications- Core engine components designed for reconditioning andreuse at overhaul


- E-stop pushbutton on instrument panel- Air shutoff and explosion relief valves- Configurable alarm and shutdown features- Extra alarm switches available for customer-suppliedinputs- Flame arrestors

Ease of Installation and Packaging

EMCP 4.4 control panel uses standard communicationprotocols to integrate easily with rig monitoring equipmentto track engine health and substitution performance- Paralleling and load sharing capability- Fully integrated diesel and gas controls into single enginecontrol unit- Single point operation for generator set and Dynamic GasBlending system- Dynamic Gas Blending system automatically activateswhen gas supply is detected
