Red­star Equip­ment has added the At­las Copco QAC 1100 Twin Power prime mo­bile gen­er­a­tor to its line-up.

The QAC 1100 gen­er­a­tor is a 6m ‘con­tainer­ised’ unit with two 500kVa gen­er­a­tors in­side, mak­ing it suited to ap­pli­ca­tions with vari­able power needs. The sec­ond gen­er­a­tor also works as a backup on jobs re­quir­ing less than 500kVa.

“The great­est ad­van­tage that the QAC 1100 gen­er­a­tor of­fers our cus­tomers is with the two gen­er­a­tors in one plat­form,” Red­star Equip­ment gen­eral man­ager sales Kevin En­nis says.

“This gives you flex­i­bil­ity be­cause you can run this gen­er­a­tor at 100 per cent power load or lower power loads.

“This en­sures that you will meet your en­ergy re­quire­ments in the most ef­fi­cient way.”

As a prime mo­bile gen­er­a­tor, the At­las Copco QAC 1100 is de­signed to be eas­ily trans­portable be­tween job sites.

“Trans­porta­tion of the QAC 1100 is sim­ple. This por­ta­ble gen­er­a­tor comes with ro­bust lift­ing eyes and fork­lift in­lets, en­abling quick han­dling and trans­porta­tion,” En­nis says.

The At­las Copco QAC 1100 Twin Power is de­signed for easy ser­vice, with the mo­tor and al­ter­na­tor sets lo­cated on op­po­site sides to give mul­ti­ple ac­cess points to all the main com­po­nents.

The gen­er­a­tor’s com­po­nents have been tested for dura­bil­ity in se­vere op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.

“Air, oil and fuel fil­ters for heavy work, and rust-free, easy-to­clean fuel al­lows for a lower risk of break­down,” En­nis says.

“The spillage-free frame re­duces any po­ten­tial en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact,” he adds. “It can con­tain 110 per cent of the fluid ca­pac­ity of the gen­er­a­tor.”

If even more power is re­quired, the QAC 1100 can work in tan­dem with other gen­er­a­tors or even along­side mains power.

“To tackle even big­ger jobs, the QAC 1100 por­ta­ble gen­er­a­tor with the two QC 4003 con­trollers, can run alone or in par­al­lel with other gen­er­a­tors,” En­nis adds.

“You have the choice of is­land mode or power man­age­ment sys­tem. You can run the gen­er­a­tor in par­al­lel with mains, peak shav­ing, mains power ex­port/im­port, fixed power and au­to­matic mains fail­ure.”
