Remote Cathodic Protection
midstream gas transportation company with
activity in the Rocky Mountains maintain portions
of their pipeline that are in places without access to
utility grid power. In order to provide electrical power
to their essential corrosion prevention equipment,
such as their ICCP (Impressed Current Cathodic
Protection) rectifiers, this company needed simple
and extremely reliable electric power solutions that
could be powered by pipeline gas.
reliably transform pipeline natural-gas into reliable electrical
With multiple configurable outputs, the Smartgen was
programmed to output electric power at the
(50V / 50A).
The Smartgen was installed and commissioned at a remote site in the Uintah
placed adjacent to the pipeline and is fueled by pipeline gas. Electrically, it is coupled directly to the ICCP
rectifier with a standard 3-conductor cable carrying the 240Vac.
