JCB Power Products has launched a generator range designed to cope with the harshest conditions that the Middle East has to offer. The QS generator range has been designed to cope with the Middle East’s high temperatures, choking dust, and poor fuel quality.
Sporting JCB’s Dieselmax engines, which the firm says are equipped to deal with the Middle East’s demanding operating environments, the line-up consists of four models, ranging from 60kVA to 140kVA standby power at 50Hz.
Poor quality diesel represents one of the key driving forces behind the development of the QS range. In order to make them more tolerant to such fuel, the generators feature three-stage filtration systems sensitive to up to 5μ. The QS units also feature removable, ‘slide-out’ fuel tanks for simple cleaning and servicing, large, removable doors to facilitate maintenance, and Deep Sea Electronics 4510 control panels.
The QS gensets have been developed and approved to operate in temperatures above 50°C, making them ideally suited to desert operation during the Middle Eastern summertime. The units will complement JCB’s existing range of generators and light towers.
The gensets are available in both canopy and open variants to suit differing user requirements.
“JCB’s QS generators have been designed expressly to tackle head on the challenges of high temperatures, dusty work sites, poor fuel quality, and varying output requirements,” said Faisal Hamze, JCB Power Products’ regional sales manager for the Middle East.
“Demand for generators is growing in line with the mega developments, road, and rail projects that are taking place at the moment,” added Hamze.
