Liberty Oilfield Services Inc. (NYSE: LBRT) and Rolls-Royce announced today the selection of Rolls-Royce’s mtu gas generator sets to power Liberty’s next generation digiFrac™ electric frac pumps. Liberty’s digiFrac is the industry’s first purpose-built, fully integrated electric frac pump with high power density and significantly lower emissions compared to the best available frac pump technology in the market. Rolls-Royce mtu gas generator sets (gensets) will be used to power digiFrac pumps with continuous duty power that can withstand intense pressure pumping applications.
“Liberty is at the forefront of technology invention in the completion services industry and the selection of mtu engines to power digiFrac is significant in our plan for continuous improvement. We chose mtu natural gas gensets because of Rolls-Royce’s innovation potential to expand the power density of the solution over the same footprint,” commented Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer of Liberty. “Together, these technologies advance environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) goals of reducing emissions and delivering a low total cost of ownership solution to Liberty’s exploration and production (E&P) customers.”
