By Thomas Allen03 November 2020

Mid-America Engine, the Warrior, Alabama-headquartered distributor of diesel and natural gas power generation systems and accessories, has signed a distribution agreement with Atlas Copco for its full line of genset and lighting tower products.


The distribution agreement is for Atlas Copco’s full line of gensets, including this Twin Power containerised unit, as well as lighting towers

Mid-America’s territories include Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle, including parts of the Gulf Coast Region.

The new agreement gives Mid-America sales, service and distribution responsibility for prime power diesel gensets from 20kW to 1MW, as well as Atlas Copco’s QAS mobile gensets, which are designed specifically for the US market, incorporating Tier 4 Final diesel engines and with a 20% smaller footprint than the previous generation.

In addition, as many as 32 of the QAS 625 units can be paralleled for specialised applications, providing up to 20MVA of power, Mid-America said.

Mid-America will also sell and service Atlas Copco’s QAC 1500 Twin Power, a 6m containerised unit that consists of two gensets rated 1,160kW prime power and incorporates variable speed cooling fans and a configurable busbar. It can be switched between 50 and 60Hz, and is engineered for one-side service access with 500-hour service intervals.

Mid-America Engine is in the process of receiving inventory of the Atlas Copco products and has begun taking orders. It expects to be fully stocked in January 2021.
