FG Wilson has strengthened its position as a leading global manufacturer of diesel and gas generator sets with the launch of its new F model range
The 32–125kVA range of generator sets from FG Wilson complements the manufacturer’s existing product ranges and has been designed to provide a more diverse and competitive product offering across multiple customer segments such as domestic, retail and industrial.
The launch of the new product range comes at a time when FG Wilson’s Asia Power Systems (APS) facility in Tianjin, China, celebrates five years in operation after being established in 2009 in order to meet growing production requirements.
Highlighting FG Wilson’s policy of continued investment in its world-class manufacturing facilities across the globe, the APS plant in China is one of the main source plants for the recently-opened Product Distribution Centre (PDC), located at Zeebrugge, Belgium.
The facility has also achieved a series of acclaimed industry accreditations recently - including LEED Gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), MQ 12005 Gold, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
With manufacturing plants located in the UK, Brazil, China, India and the USA, FG Wilson’s ‘One Global Standard’ guarantee has acted to ensure that every one of its generator sets has been designed to the same global standard, with the ‘One Global Standard’ principle applied to the new F model range.
An exclusive feature of the new range is the introduction of the FG Wilson engines to the generator set core design. Coupled with robust components, the F models deliver a high-quality, ready-to-run product that meets industry standards for the valueutility market.
FG Wilson general manager Stephen McKinty said, “This product range delivers, as always, performance, serviceability and durability with a FG Wilson engine and a simplified choice of options.”
He added, “This will allow us to compete in new markets and broaden our customer base.
Such new product introductions are part of Caterpillar’s strategic plans to position FG Wilson as the volume brand within its Electric Power Division for all diesel and gas generator sets from 6.8–750kVA.
“Our ability to continually evolve our products to meet the ever-changing needs of customers, in a market that is more competitive than ever, has been key to FG Wilson retaining its global leadership position in power generation,” he added.
Available in non-emissions compliant variants, suitable for non-regulated markets and non-mobile applications within Europe, the 32–125kVA range is now available to order.
FG Wilson, a global brand with 48 years of industry-leading experience in the supply of diesel and gas generator sets from 6.8–2,500kVA, has more than 370 authorised dealers in more than 150 countries provide global expertise, with local advice and support.
