250 kW Microturbines
Consume less, generate more
Consume less, generate more
At Ingersoll Rand, we not only imagined a way of producing
clean on-site energy and conserving natural resources, while
generating a new revenue stream and reducing operating
costs…we built the equipment to do it. Our remarkable 250 kW
microturbines produce green energy; green in how they protect
our ever-fragile environment and green in the way they make
and save you money. If your operation can benefit from an
on-site reliable energy source that delivers electricity and
thermal savings or revenue, while offsetting harmful
emissions, Ingersoll Rand 250 kW microturbines are
exactly what you need.
We are the world leader in creating and sustaining
safe, comfortable and efficient environments.

Associated gas is now a valuable
With an Ingersoll Rand microturbine, gases associated with oil and gas recovery can provide all the
electricity needed to run process equipment in a prime power application. When connected to a utility
grid, associated gases offset energy costs and reduce exposure to utility rate increases. Heat recovered
from the microturbine can also offset energy costs in processes requiring heat.
