Alpharetta, GA, June 12, 2020 --( Vericor Power Systems (“Vericor”) announced that they recently concluded the first field-test of 1,000 hours with their TF50F dual fuel gas turbine on a direct drive Hydraulic Fracturing application for a major Customer in USA, BJ Services, as announced by their press release on June 4.

The field test was a major success with no gas turbine related incidents or unscheduled downtime. Various challenging operating conditions and fuel switching while at power were also tested successfully.
