GasGen Canada Ltd. introduces the ARC engine.

This Advanced Radial Configuration engine is breakthrough engine technology which will revolutionize distributed power, or any prime mover application, replacing traditional Diesel/NatGas in-line engine configurations with a compact, low cost, and clean efficient alternative.

The power plant delivers high-load capacity, extended maintenance intervals and long service life while retaining all the advantages inherent in its radial design: light weight, high horsepower, low internal friction and excellent operating efficiency at stoich on gaseous fuels.

The fuel-flexible ARC engine operates on natural gas (CNG/LNG), LPG (Propane/Butane), Bio-Methane (Landfills/Digesters), Flare gas (Oil Drilling/Processing) and Ethanol.


Inspired by one of the most reliable engine platforms ever developed, the ARC engine has been re-engineered and modernized for the 21st century.

This completely new power plant was built with state-of-the-art engineering methods, computer aided analysis, and precision machining and assembly techniques for robust industrial performance and reliability.

It utilizes advanced combustion technology with microprocessor-based diagnostic, monitoring and control systems for heavy duty, mission critical applications.

Air cooled and turbocharged, with significantly fewer parts and bearings, the unique combination of features enables the ARC engine to reliably deliver unprecedented mobility, durability, fuel efficiency and emissions compliance to distributed power markets worldwide.

With a goal to provide strong environmental stewardship, the ARC engine will meet the toughest of emissions standards including CARB 2013 and EPA 2010 requirements for large spark ignition engines (LSI).


The ARC engine being compact, lower cost, and a clean efficient alternative to other Diesel/Natgas engines, is a perfect prime mover for power generation. The first of many products configurations, GasGen Canada Ltd. introduces the Genesis1000, the world’s smallest and lightest 1MW power generation system built for the demands of distributed power. With standard, sound attenuated, arctic grade and mobile enclosures, and advanced monitoring and controls, including parallel operations, the robust design of the Genesis1000 will reliably deliver power for less cost than traditional in-line generators. The Genesis1000 delivers;

  • Reduced weight, size, and cost (1MW: fully enclosed at 16,200Lbs in less than 18’)
  • Reduced maintenance and overhaul costs with ease of access and modular design
  • Reduced emissions with no exhaust after treatment meeting all current and scheduled emission requirements include those of the EPA, EU, and CARB
  • Significantly lower cost per BTU & lower emissions vs diesel
  • Fuel Agility; Natural Gas (CNG/LNG/Pipeline/Flare), BioGas/Landfill/Flare, LPG (Propane/Butane), Ethanol
  • 1/2 the footprint: < 150 square feet vs 320 sq feet for CAT and  Cummins and 240 sq ft for Capstone
