There are now nine generators in the QAS 5 range, providing fast ‘plug and play’ power from 80 to 200kVA on Stage 3A, and from 250 to 660kVA on Stage V. These advanced generators are ideal for use in construction, events and utility applications, helping companies improve their fleet utilisation and return on investment.
“The new generators are a welcome addition to the QAS 5 range, and have been developed in response to customer demand for larger power capacity, but with a more sustainable operation that meets legislation,” says Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager – Small & Medium Power Generators at Atlas Copco. “The QAS 5 generators are proven as reliable in demanding industrial environments and are enabling customers to improve plant performance.”
Events and industrial sites in urban environments are increasingly demanding quieter portable energy equipment. So the QAS 5 generators are designed to be notably silent in operation, with noise levels as low as 85dBA. This is on average 5-8dBA quieter than comparable generators depending on the application and load profile. This quiet performance is thanks to advanced technologies including variable speed drive (VSD) air cooling, silencers and a special isolated compartment for the power pack.
Space is a premium on any site, and the QAS 5 models are compact, with a 20% smaller footprint than alternative generators in their class. As such, they are easy to transport and position on-site. They are built with rental applications in mind and offer exceptional portability with a sturdy frame and integrated forklift slots that can bear four times the weight of the unit without any deformation.
Furthermore, Atlas Copco says the QAS 5 generators can be paralleled with each other to form a mobile or independent power plant in just 55 seconds, which is a crucial advantage for operators with scalable power requirements. This allows for optimum power usage and high levels of on-site power redundancy.
