Himoinsa has supplied four generator sets to provide power for Dubai Festival City’s Imagine show.

Imagine uses water pumps, fire, and lasers to project detailed imagery onto a Guinness World Record-holding wall of water in front of InterContinental Dubai Festival City.

The Himoinsa gensets, which were supplied by UAE-headquartered distributor, FAMCO, are providing 5.2MVA of energy to power the 48 pumps that are needed for the nightly show.

Himoinsa and FAMCO proposed the installation of three HTW-1745 T5 units, fed by a central fuel tank and auto-filling system, to act as a single source of energy and keep the plant primed for show time.

The HTW-1745 T5 gensets start up at the same time, just as a single power plant would. Depending on lead demand during downtime and following the show finale, one or more of the gensets automatically switches off and remains on standby in case emergency power is needed.

In order to optimise efficiency, the companies installed a fourth 60kVA HFW-60 T5 genset, which uses an FPT-Iveco engine in sync with the other units. When the show comes to an end and energy demand decreases, this unit starts up allowing its three counterparts to be switched off without interrupting supply.

The Himoinsa gensets are housed in 40ft-long containers, which served to simplify logistics, reduce onsite work, and minimise installation time. Their operation is monitored and controlled from a single point.

Imagine’s record-breaking wall of water is five times larger than the biggest cinema screen.

The show forms the centrepiece of the Dubai Festival City complex, which was recently expanded by Al-Futtaim Group in 2016.
