Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment solutions to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power, and process industries, recently installed the first Guascor® gen-set for a biomass application in Latin America at the San Juan de Olivos olive harvesting and olive oil production facility in San Juan, Argentina.
In addition to providing enough energy to sustain the plant's operations and provide energy to other areas of San Juan, the process is expected to save San Juan de Olivos close to $600,000 dollars in electricity costs every year.
Dresser-Rand worked on the project with LatAm Bioenergy Group, a New York-based engineering, procurement and construction company, focused on the sustainable development of renewable energy solutions in Latin American countries. The LatAm Bioenergy Group served as the project architect, the engineering, procurement, and construction project lead, and the exclusive market developer for the gasifier.
