Atlas Copco has announced a new addition to its QAC range of containerised generators.
High fuel economy is one of the strengths of the QAC 1450 TwinPower especially in Modular Power Plant (MPP) applications.
The QAC 1450 TwinPower is a 20 ft. ISO containerised unit housing two compact 725 kVA generators; powered by V8 Scania engines with double bearing alternators.
This configuration, with its fast-paralleling system, allows the two generators to work independently or in parallel with each other
Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager from the Atlas Copco Power and Flow division said: “Our TwinPower concept provides the same output, performance and efficiency as a single generator package, thereby achieving up to 10% in fuel savings.
“In essence, two generators, which are powered by smaller engines, behave as one large one; while providing far more flexibility and contributing to a lower overall cost of ownership.”
The QAC 1450 is equipped with a centralised control and monitoring system that is both easy-to-use and configure.
The system is said to have been developed keeping the region’s conditions in mind and is suited for sectors that include mining, construction, transport, oil and gas and utilities’ applications.
