Atlas Copco showcases its new generators, lighting masts

Atlas Copco is showcasing its latest range of diesel powered generator sets and lighting masts at Middle East Electricity, including the ultra tough HardHat design QAX range of portable generators.

With a canopy constructed of linear medium density polyethelene (LMDP), the QAX30 30kVA portable generator is designed to be exceptionally durable, able to withstand the harshest of conditions and treatment.

Sledge hammer demonstration

This was most aptly demonstrated during the three-day exhibition when visitors passing the stand were offered a sledge hammer with which to inflict as much damage upon the canopy of the generator as they could.

Living up to its reputation, and despite a constant stream of bashings from competing generator set manufacturers, the QAX30 stood strong, yet to suffer as much as a minor graze.

Lasts years longer

Michael Sagermann, Regional Business Line Manager at Atlas Copco Middle East said, "Inevitably generators are bumped and scratched to various levels that make the machine look old and unattractive," said Sagermann, who added that the lifespan of the QAX20 lasts years longer than normal portable generators, while holding an increased amount of its original price tag for resale versus conventional steel.

"The LMDP is structurally strong, does not scratch or dent thereby keeping it looking very new and upon reaching the point of time for replacement increases its resale value on the second hand market. In addition to the QAX30, Atlas Copco will also showcase the QLTH40 lighting tower and the QAC1000 containerised generator for the first time at Middle East Electricity."
