Himoinsa and FAMCO launch hybrid genset in GCC
Spanish manufacturer targets Middle East telecoms industry.
Himoinsa has introduced a variable speed, hybrid generator set to the Middle East market targeted at the region’s telecoms industry.
The unit features both a diesel generator and batteries, and can also be connected to either wind or solar renewable energy sources.
The product is being launched in conjunction with authorised Himoinsa distributor, FAMCO.
“Himoinsa’s hybrid unit is a combination of technologies,” explained Augustin Rodrigo, the Spanish manufacturer’s network development manager.
“We have combined a variable speed genset with batteries and renewable energy sources. This combination means that the genset’s running time is minimised, resulting in reduced emissions and significantly lower operational costs,” he added.
By selecting a variable speed Yanmar engine with a range of 1,300 rpm to 3,000 rpm, Himoinsa has created a unit that can optimise its performance and fuel consumption according to the energy requirements at any one time.
The batteries – which can be charged by either the genset or renewable energy sources – are able to provide power during low-load demand, negating the need for the diesel generator to run. The result: a power product with a variable output of 5kW to 15kW.
