The collaboration of the VETS system and Continental Controls Corp.'s (CCC) components empowered Vortex to eliminate persistent shutdowns, potentially saving up to 16 days of monthly downtime. CCC, with over 50 years of expertise, continues to redefine emissions reduction and control technology boundaries. This partnership drives the industry towards cleaner, more effective solutions aligned with a dynamic energy landscape.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic's economic strains, Vortex recognizes ongoing customer evaluations of emission reduction benefits. Discussions on the long-term advantages of VETS and the CCC system remain fruitful. The VETS and CCC partnership's strength lies in its ability to reduce ownership costs while minimizing carbon footprints.
The forthcoming Canadian government assurance program is expected to further incentivize emission cuts, taking into account carbon taxes vis-à-vis reduction expenses. This perspective gains significance as new regulations and carbon tax hikes are on the horizon. CCC's proactive approach involves creating products focused on emission cuts and cost savings. The Gas Fuel Shut Off Manifold System, launched in 2020, streamlines retrofitting older fuel systems in gas turbines with CCC's upgraded design, aligning seamlessly with CCC's AGV valves and offering advanced efficiency monitoring.
Vortex's comprehensive business model, spanning various oil and gas value chain segments, empowers them to address industry trends in cost reduction and emissions compliance through divisions specializing in packaging, services, and structures, elevating efficiency across diverse sectors. Vortex's partnership with CCC qualifies for Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA) Small Producers Energy Efficiency Deployment (SPEED) funding, supporting emissions reduction in Alberta's oil and gas sector. The partnership has yielded effective emissions cuts and noteworthy fuel savings.
CCC underscores the potential of natural gas combined with modern catalyst systems and low-NOx control techniques as a bridge to a sustainable economy. They also value renewable natural gas (RNG) from organic waste for its contribution to greenhouse gas reduction. CCC's gas turbine valves accommodate various gases, ensuring precision and adaptability. Their exploration of blending gases such as hydrogen or RNG with methane offers flexible fuel control solutions.
