Powertecnique has struck a deal with Network Rail to deliver a standby generator at the “York Engineers’ Triangle”, a rail operating and training centre, in York, UK.

The generator is a 1,250kVA prime rated genset, synchronising two different mains supplies with DeepSea 8000 series controllers with additional PLC control systems and a G59 relay. The genset aims to minimise unplanned downtime or disruption to critical power.

The contract also provides the installation of an underground bulk fuel tank with remote fuel point and double skinned connecting pipework with leak detection and an additional 1,100kW resistive load bank for full load testing to the generator or other uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).

“We worked alongside BAM Construction and consultants Ramboll to deliver the solution for the operating centre, before presenting the proposed solution to Network Rail”, said Peter Chai-Tsai, sales and marketing director at Powertecnique.

The operating centre in York is planned to be the largest in the UK, controlling the signaling along the east coast from London King’s Cross to the Scottish borders. “There has been a huge nationwide upgrade on operating centres and the site in York will bring in signals from across the region through large central technologies. It is imperative that the site’s power is supported continuously to keep operations running as smoothly as possible”, added Chai-Tsai.

Himoinsa Power Systems takes aim at rental market with new gensets

Wed, 01/23/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

Spanish genset OEM Himoinsa Power Systems has launched a 500 kW standby genset in a 10 feet-long container.


In a statement, Himoinsa said the main feature of this generator set is its size. Aimed at the rental market, the 10 feet-long container makes the 500 kW genset available in locations where a 20 feet container is not an option. 

The Spanish firm says it will launch Middle East Electricity MEE, from February 17th to 19th, a dual frequency (50/60 Hz) containerised HRTW 1300 genset, aimed at the rental market. A spokesman for Himoinsa said: “The HRTW 1300 is thought to satisfy the needs of the rental and building market and heavy duty applications.

“It has several important advantages in comparison with other sort of products operating in this segment. Among its elements, there are a variable speed fan, to reduce the fuel consumption and sound emission, and an inside lighting system, to guarantee an easy cleaning and maintenance.”
