VariPower TM Launched Today
The Variable Speed Hybrid Generator Power Solution
Energy Solutions launched their latest innovation – VariPower - a unique variable speed generator power system today at their Head Office in Rochester. With many people attending the event they saw the first demonstration of the unit which offers flexible, efficient power for temporary and off grid power environments.
During the demonstrations customers and business colleagues were shown how the generator will seamlessly increase its rpms to deliver the capacity needed, and reduce again as required. Using a mock up of typical day and night loads the VariPower demonstrated how for periods of very low load, i.e. during the night; when only a few loads need to run, the system will simply use the power stored in the batteries. This gives silent power when most needed and reduces fuel costs dramatically. When the loads increased, the VariPower automatically started the generator and adjusted the level to suit demand.
Designed and built by Energy Solutions’ in-house Engineering team VariPower is the result of 14 months of development to address the increasing market demands for quiet power with economical generator use. The units offer true variable power from the built in generator – it can run at any level between 900 and 2000 rpm. Delivering two important advantages to customers; firstly, economy - if the power demand is only low the unit can run at just 900 rpm, fewer revolutions mean the generator is using less fuel and creates less noise. Secondly, longevity - the unit is not going to be worked so hard, it will only be powering at the level required, therefore increasing the interval between generator services and renewals.
There are two variations of the unit – the VariPower 10 is designed for the off grid power market as an all in one, static source of affordable, quiet power. VariPower 20 whas been built to be a deployable, transportable power system for applications where instant, temporary power solutions are needed.
Managing Director Paul Holland (pictured above) was delighted with the day: “The launch has been a great success, we knew from discussions with customers that there is demand in the market for this type of hybrid generator system. The VariPower was developed to be the ultimate variable speed solution, keeping fuel costs and carbon emissions at a minimum whenever possible, and extending the life span of the generator. I am confident that this will meet the requirements of many of the people who attended and we anticipate sending the first units out to customers at the end of this month.”
