At Middle East Electricity 2018, which takes place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 6-8 March 2018, Atlas Copco is to unveil the latest innovations from its expansive power generation portfolio. This will include a new game-changing Variable Speed Generator (VSG) that offers superior low-load performance, a containerised, fuel-saving TwinPower concept for Modular Power Plant (MPP) applications and energy-efficient electric LED light towers from the HiLight range.
The theme of booths S3B19 (inside) and O.A40 (outside) is Powering the Future, where visitors will be able to learn about Atlas Copco’s latest generator products and also participate in some Virtual Reality experiences. Delegates will also have the opportunity to meet experts from Atlas Copco’s newly formed Power and Flow division, who will be on hand to provide guidance on how the products introduced at MEE can help them successfully overcome the challenges facing both the global and regional power generation industry and outdoor lighting sector in the next 24 months.
“Middle East Electricity is a fantastic forum to meet with the major players in the region’s power generation industry, and we look forward to sharing our vision with both new and existing customers about how Atlas Copco is ‘Powering the Future’ through innovations such as the new QAS VSG generator, TwinPower concept and its latest evolution in light tower technologies.”
Leading the way on the Atlas Copco booths will be the QAS 35 VSG (Variable Speed Generator), which represents a game changer in terms of operational savings, performance and reliability. The superior low-load performance of the QAS 35 VSG, which features automatic variable speed control from 800 to 2550 rpm and a built-in Power Management System (PMS), enables fuel consumption levels to be reduced by up to 40 per cent against comparable models. At the same time it helps increase reliability in applications with an average load of less than 20 per cent, such as construction projects, outdoor events or telecoms service duties.
The QAC 1450 TwinPower™ generator is another new innovation being unveiled by Atlas Copco, which offers double the power and twice the flexibility for MPP applications. The QAC 1450 TwinPower is 20 ft. ISO containerised unit housing two compact 725 kVA generators; powered by V16 Scania engines and double bearing alternators. This configuration, with its fast-paralleling system, allows the two generators to work independently or in parallel with each other.
Visitors to Atlas Copco’s booth will also have the opportunity to see the latest additions to its QIS industrial generator and QES portable generator ranges that includes models from 250 kVA upwards. Also, on display will be the HiLight V3+ and HiLight P2+ electric light towers - energy-efficient plug-and-play LED machines that can be plugged into any power source, including auxiliary power, directly into the grid, or a portable generator such as the iP3500 or the iP2000, which will also be on show.
