Atlas Copco expands QES range of generators to provide predictable power on the move
Atlas Copco is doubling the size of its QES portable generator range with six new models designed to provide predictable power in a greater diversity of applications. The new generators, ranging from 60 to 200 kVA, build upon the success of the initial QES line-up, which was launched in 2015 with five models ranging from 9 to 40 kVA.
The QES range has undergone an extensive design and testing procedure to ensure resilience against even the harshest weather. The secure, corrosion-proof canopy repels all liquids, including heavy rainfall, and also performs in extreme heat. Another key element of the design is that it is easy to operate, giving the generator plug-and-power capability and eliminating any headaches associated with start-up.
“We like to say that the QES range is weatherproof,” said Angel Nieto, product marketing manager for rental and construction generators. “By adding more power nodes, these new additions to the QES range give greater scope to customers in the construction and rental markets who simply want reliable and user-friendly generators that can be easily transported to the point where they are needed.”
Standard features of the expanded QES range include manual start controllers, spillage free frame with integrated forklift slots and lifting beams, external drain points and large doors for easy access during servicing. Among the options are battery charger and cut-off switch, external fuel tank connection and cold-start functionality. The new 60-200 models are fitted with John Deere engines. The 9-40 models feature Kubota engines.
Atlas Copco has an extensive range of generators. The QES range sits alongside the high-performing QAS mobile generator range, which has also been extended in 2016 with the launch of the QAS 630. In addition, Atlas Copco’s larger containerised packages now include Twinpower, a packaged container that balances high power and precise fuel efficiency thanks to advanced controller technology.
