LAVLE announced that CleanDesign Power Systems Inc. (CleanDesign), 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 optimizes 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.”
“As the world leader in hybrid drilling rig power systems, CleanDesign is an exciting partner to work with on this project, and we look forward to contributing our advanced ESS technologies to its state-of-the-art system,” said Dr. Jason Nye, CEO, LAVLE. “These advanced hybrid drill rig power systems will make a meaningful impact in reducing the costs and carbon emissions related to drilling rig operations and we are proud to be part of this solution.”
The first LAVLE Proteus ESS will be delivered in Fall 2020 as part of CleanDesign’s global rollout of its technology to industry leading drilling rig contractors and oil and gas operators.
