Recognising the increase in demand for sustainable energy, the company has expanded its current product range of diesel-powered generators to include natural gas-fuelled generator sets for standby and prime power use in industries including quarrying and mining.

The Pramac industrial gas range uses proven technology from Generac industrial spark-ignited engines. Optimised for performance and responsiveness to load variations, and combined with modular design from Pramac, the new gas sets offer integrated control technology for ultimate flexibility, scalability and reliability for crucial loads.

Gas-fuelled generators are said by RPG to offer numerous advantages, including, faster and more cost-effective commissioning, extended run-time and increased power density. Environmental benefits include low noise output, no black smoke on start-up or load change, low NOx, CO2 and virtually no particle matter emissions, ensuring MCPD compliance.

Established in 1966 and headquartered in Siena, Italy, Pramac produces and sells power generation systems and material handling equipment primarily under the Pramac and Lifter by Pramac brands. The company seeks constant improvement in design, manufacturing and installation of its complete range of portable, mobile and stationary generators products. Pramac offers tailored power solutions that can be adapted to every specific requirement.

Pramac manufactures portable, mobile and stationary generators up to 4MVA, and exceeds the needs of many industries.

With the aim of pursuing further growth opportunities in the global power generation market, in 2016 Pramac signed an agreement with Generac – a North American power generation market leader. Together, the two companies have a combined total of 4,000 employees and are the world’s third-largest power generation group.

RPG, formerly A1 Power Systems, manufactures standard and bespoke generating sets from 10kVA – 2500kVA. Manufactured using only premium Volvo, Scania and Perkins engines, Mecc Alte alternators and Deep-Sea controls, RPG’s range includes open-set, soundproof canopied and containerised generator options.

Barry Taaffe, technical director – RPG, said: “We’re delighted to enter the gas-fuelled generator market through the launch of our new partnership with Pramac-Generac. This extension to our product offering enables us to meet increasing customer demand for renewable energy and future proofs our growth strategy.”
