“ We instructed Nyrstar’s technical department during the construction so they could handle the generators themselves. This made it simple for them to synchronize the 2nd generator and start it safely. This synchronization was executed in a 100% automated manner by the QC4002 control unit, standard on QAS500. Also the load sharing is controlled by this unit, resulting in a 50/50 distribution of the load between the generators. ”
“ If anything occurs with one of the units, the other set automatically takes over without any power interruption. This offered certainty during the operations, especially since we had to completely disconnect the main power supply! ”
“ Atlas Copco Rental has been a constructive partner and delivered exactly what we needed for this project, both technically and budgetary. This definitely offers a perspective for future projects. ”
