Italian power renter buys hybrid gensets
By Thomas Allen09 December 2019
Italian mobile generator rental company Energy Rental has worked in collaboration with FPT Industrial, Sices and Riello UPS to create a new hybrid, Stage V compliant 300kVA diesel-powered mobile generator.
The system integrates two high-efficiency UPS (uninterrupted power supply) modules with two high-performance battery systems and FPT Industrial’s 8.7-litre Cursor 9 engine, which is compliant with EU Stage V emissions standards due to its use of FPT’s trademark HI-SCR2 technology.
The battery systems can be powered from the grid or by renewable sources such as photovoltaic panels.
The genset features a remote monitoring device that allows users to see the unit’s location and operating status in real time via an App or on a computer.
Alessandro De Berti, Business Development Manager of Milan-based Energy Rental, said, “The idea of this generator originated from the profound desire to guarantee the highest level of innovation and involve a group of leading companies in developing a 100% Italian-built system which, in a world first, would enable combined and also independent use of a zero-emission UPS and a diesel generator”
Christian Piazzalunga, Sales Operations at control systems manufacturer Sices, said, “The new solutions this system adopts are the outcome of a thorough analysis of the critical concerns for devices of this kind, including prolonged, uninterrupted operation, absence of supervision, noise output and unknown load requirements.
“Brilliant solutions were developed thanks to thousands of hours of co-design work by the various partners.”
Alessandro Zilli, Power Generation Marketing Manager at FPT, said of the 8.7 litre, 300kVA engine, “It produces one of the highest specific powers on the market, so customers enjoy many important benefits with regard to its compact size, with obvious knock-on effects in terms of installation inside the total footprint and canopy of the genset itself.”
Energy Rental, based in Vomodrone, nortth east of Milan, has been renting power for more than 30 years. It specialises in renting to the events and broadcasting sectors.
