CleanDesign Power Systems has selected the LAVLE Proteus Lithium-Ion Battery Energy Storage System (Proteus ESS) for inclusion in its hybrid power management system for drilling rigs in the oil and gas industry.
CleanDesign’s hybrid energy management and battery power system optimises power generation on drilling rigs. The drilling rig setup consists of existing generators and the CleanDesign hybrid power upgrade. Together, the system reduces fuel consumption, lowers emissions, shortens genset runtime hours, and cuts power-related downtime on the drilling rig.
“LAVLE offers an industry leading battery solution for safety. This includes cell level thermal isolation to prevent the risk of thermal runaway, a critical feature to mitigate the risk of battery fires. The technical teams at LAVLE and CleanDesign have also worked in great detail to tailor the battery performance to the power and energy requirements of drilling at maximum rates of penetration,” said Joel Donen, CEO of CleanDesign.”
“We are pleased to announce the selection of the LAVLE battery solution and believe it will add value to the oil and gas industry as well as support the industry’s commitment and efforts around environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.”
The first LAVLE Proteus ESS will be delivered in Q3 2020 as part of CleanDesign’s global rollout of its technology to industry leading drilling rig contractors and oil and gas operators.
