09 12, 2016 Spartan Controls

Spartan Controls Ltd. is proud to announce it is partnering with Atrex Energy, a leader in clean, reliable fuel cell generation solutions, which will add to Spartan’s suite of Field Automation and Environmental Leadership technologies.

“We are thrilled to partner with Atrex Energy and provide our clients with a cost effective, smart, reliable, and environmentally friendly remote power solution,” said Chris Breen, Manager, Field Automation at Spartan Controls. “Partnering with Atrex Energy and its reliable CSA certified remote power solutions is another step towards our pursuit of environmental leadership.”

“We are excited to add the technical expertise and market experience of Spartan Controls to our team,” stated Michael Gagnon, Atrex Energy VP of Sales and Marketing. “Spartan has a great reputation throughout Western Canada as an Emerson Local Business Partner providing innovative solutions and services. Their established customer base, combined with our market-leading fuel cell expertise, creates a strong platform for growth. The Spartan partnership will enable Atrex Energy to better serve our customers in these areas, with a local presence that can provide superior pre and post-sales support.”

Accessibility to power in remote areas is essential to many functions that are crucial to customer operations, and extending the grid is often not an option due to the remote location of sites. Atrex Energy’s portfolio of quiet, green, non-space intensive DC power generator systems are a perfect choice to service remote or off-grid applications.

These systems provide 24/7/365 continuous power for load profiles such as:

  • Cathodic Protection
  • Chemical Injection Pumps
  • SCADA and instrumentation
  • Valve actuation
  • Remote light towers
  • Surveillance
  • Radio transmitters
