Italy-based SAFE SpA and Illinois-based Broadwind Energy have announced plans to commence manufacturing of two new compressed natural gas (CNG) compression packages.
Last year, the companies paired up to form a strategic partnership to deliver CNG compression packages to the North American market. They say the two new packages will feature 250 HP motors, an inlet pressure range of 15-45 psi and 540 SCFM output. Packaging will take place at Broadwind Energy's Texas facility, with completion scheduled for early June.
‘We are interested in leveraging our experience in CNG throughout the world to deliver reliable and cost-effective CNG compression solutions to meet the growing demands of the U.S. market,” says Mario Pirraglia, president of SAFE North AmericaÂ “Partnering with Broadwind Energy enables us to assure customers that spare parts are readily available and a nationwide service network stands behind the product line.”
‘This is an important step in our growth plans for North America,” adds Joseph Reisinger, vice president of product management at Broadwind Energy. “We are building the stock packages to allow customers the ability to see the features of our equipment first hand and demonstrate our commitment to delivering a high-quality turnkey compression packaged in North America.”Â
