GE expands gas compression in Canada

GE’s Distributed Power business has expanded its new Gas Compression Power Packager programme in Canada by adding Bidell Gas Compression as a new participant at the Platinum Level.

The programme is designed to provide customers in gas compression applications with enhanced access to genuine Waukesha parts and skilled service technicians.

The programme increases the opportunity for end users to access expert Waukesha gas engine service technicians in growing oil and gas spaces, like in Western Canada, through increased GE training to participating packaging companies.

End users in these spaces can benefit from reduced engine life cycle costs through increased access to proven, genuine Waukesha parts. As a Platinum-level participant, Bidell can purchase genuine Waukesha parts and services directly from GE.

“We are proud to partner with Bidell as a new Platinum participant in the Gas Compression Power Packager Program,” said Darryl Wilson, Chief Commercial Officer for GE’s Distributed Power business. “The real winners here are our Canadian gas compression customers, which can benefit greatly from more service density and access to genuine Waukesha service products provided by Bidell under the programme.”

Bidell is a major Canadian gas compression company and subsidiary of Total Energy Services Inc. with headquarters in Calgary and field service locations throughout the country. Founded in 1988, Bidell has built and serviced a gas compression installed base exceeding an estimated 1 million horsepower, including its patented NOMAD trailer-mounted mobile units for customers operating in temporary and extremely remote applications.

“Our participation in the new Gas Compression Power Packager Program is a win for our Waukesha end-user customers,” said Sean Ulmer, President of Bidell Gas Compression. “We will be able to provide our customers with faster and greater access to genuine Waukesha service products and skilled engine technicians to better support their operations as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.”
