ECI, the region’s leading provider of process control and automation solutions, partners with Global Power Technologies to bring new remote power solutions to the Appalachian region.
As the regional sales and support partner for Global Power Technologies, ECI provides and supports the thermoelectric generator power systems, providing engineered solutions across all power ranges for battery charging and cathodic protection applications.
Previously known as Gentherm, Global Power Technologies was established in 1975 to commercialize thermoelectric generator technology originally developed for the Apollo Space program. Today, GPT is the world leader in the manufacturing and distribution of thermoelectric generators for use as remote power sources. GPT manufactures a range of generators, from 5 to 550 watts, using heat to directly produce electrical power for applications requiring up to 5,000 watts of power. GPT generators operate on natural gas, propane or liquified petroleum gas to provide highly reliable, cost-effective power.
“Thermoelectric generators are a reliable power option for our Remote Automation Solutions customers when traditional power sources are not available,” explained Jacques Cormier, Director, Remote Automation Solutions, ECI. “Power is critical to well pad operations and through GPT, we are delivering a trusted solution that is supported by our local field technicians.”
