Himoinsa has introduced two hybrid generator sets to the Middle East market.

The Spanish manufacturer unveiled the HPS 1500DCV and HPS 3000DCV variable-speed models at Middle East Electricity 2015, in conjunction with its primary distributor for the region, FAMCO.

Featuring both diesel engines and batteries, Himoinsa claims that its hybrid gensets offer fuel savings of around 40%, and extend maintenance periods by up to 1,000 hours, compared to conventional units. With this in mind, FAMCO is confident that the models will appeal to the Middle East’s telecommunications industry.

Commenting on the launch, Paul Floyd, senior managing director of FAMCO, said: “We anticipate a strong response for hybrid generators, particularly from the telecom sector, which relies very much on uninterrupted, efficient power supply in remote areas.”

In addition to reduced fuel consumption and extended maintenance periods, Himoinsa has tailored its hybrid units for the Gulf’s unforgiving operating conditions.

“These models can run at temperatures of up to 55°C,” explained Guillermo Elum, Himoinsa’s director for sales and marketing.

“We have paid special attention to the kinds of challenges that generators have to face in this region. For example, our hybrids have been fitted with sand traps to prevent contaminants from causing problems inside the generator. These types of feature mean that these machines are ideally suited to desert operations,” he told PMV.

The HPS 1500DCV and HPS 3000DCV hybrid models are powered by variable-speed Yanmar engines that are designed to operate between 1,200 rpm and 3,000 rpm. The manufacturer has also developed a control unit with an integrated management system to monitor and protect the generator’s battery, charging system, and renewable energy connections.

“Himoinsa is the world’s fastest-growing power generator brand, and with the new hybrid generator, we are proud to offer a power solution which is much needed in an energy-conscious region,” concluded Floyd.

Middle East Electricity 2015 is currently taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE.
