With an entire in-house team dedicated to power generation, Evolution is uniquely positioned to consider every possible type of power generation available.
So why did we select a large aero-derivative turbine for our electric frac power source?
Reliability & Maintenance:
Reciprocating engines have an estimated 50x the maintenance events versus large aero-derivative turbines. With the Evolution team hyper-focused on maximizing efficiencies, we only settle for the best.
Large aero-derivative turbines have substantially more fuel-flexibility versus reciprocating natural gas engines. This makes the field gas conditioning process simpler which is key reason why most dual-fuel and reciprocating engine powered fleets rely on CNG fueling.
For a standard Permian basin job design, the Evolution electric fleet requires 85% less power generation & gas supply trailers versus a reciprocating engine powered electric fleet. This reduced footprint leads to smaller wellpads, faster mobilizations, increased safety, less personnel, & less maintenance.
