Dual Drive Technologies was founded with the idea of optimizing energy during a time when the energy marketplace was seeing dramatic fluctuations in pricing between natural gas and electric power. Dual Drive Technologies, formally known as Energy Transfer Technologies, developed a system utilizing a natural gas engine and electric driver on a single shaft coupled to a reciprocating compressor.
The ability to switch drivers in less than one minute allows the end user to utilize the power source with the highest profit opportunity in the market at that time. This patented design evolved into a tool that could be used for maintenance cost management, emission control, energy management and the ability to turn an expense into a revenue.
The first compressor package was installed in East Texas in 2000 and has grown into a fleet of over 330,000 horsepower in multiple services from field gathering, transmission and cryogenic plant installations.
