Time: 5PM London/12PM New York
Upgrade your Waukesha engine to enable more power, improved reliability and lower operating expenses
The Waukesha VHP product line has served the world’s gas compression fleet for over 50 years. Over that period, there have been many configurations. Despite the many changes and updates, the core platform has maintained a flexibility that allows it to be overhauled and upgraded to the current performance of the today’s modern Series 4 and 5 configurations.
Several different offerings are available to upgrade your legacy VHP engine. The packages we discuss will provide the most benefit to your operations depending on where you are within the engine lifecycle.
• At Top-End Overhaul, upgrade to Series Four or xCooled heads and pistons to extend lifecycle intervals, improve reliability, and reduce oil consumption
• At Major Overhaul, convert to the Series Four Engine to increase engine horsepower and update to the latest ESM2 controls
• At Major Overhaul, convert to the Series Five Engine to increase engine horsepower, reduce fuel consumption, reduce cylinder combustion temperatures, and update to the latest ESM2 controls
These upgrades not only reduce your operating costs by utilizing newer technology, but also increase the value of your engine by mirroring the specification of new VHP engines today to make your VHP engine more desirable for future resale or fleet unit relocation.
Upgraded engines have been proven in the field, with several hundred conversions already completed by known gas compression service providers
If you have a VHP in your gas compression fleet, we suggest you don’t miss this opportunity to know what upgrades and configuration changes are available. You’ll leave with an understanding of what can be planned at your next overhaul or extended maintenance period. You’ll also have access to the factory personnel shaping the future of the platform. Please register now! The Waukesha team looks forward to interacting with you on the webinar.
