Generator Sets – The Next Generation

Generator Sets – The Next Generation

FG Wilson has recently launched the next generation of diesel powered rental generator sets. Introducing the new Professional Rental Operator (PRO) range this range will complement the current XD range whilst increasing the rental offering up to 500 kVA. Designed to run across a variety of applications including construction, events, industrial, oil and gas and utilities, the new range boasts a variety of features, guaranteed to ensure quality and power you can depend upon.

Delivering a rich rental specification, the PRO150-1, PRO150-2 (EUIIIa) and PRO500-2 (EUIIIa) are now available to order. Additionally, soon to be introduced, the PRO275-2 (EUIIIa) will be available late Q1 2016. The PRO range features EUIIIa and Fuel optimised engines and all models are 50/60 Hz switchable, without the need for tools or passwords to deliver increased rental utilisation. The EUIIIa compliant product is emissions certified at 50 and 60 Hz. The product comes with the PowerWizard 2.1+ control panel as standard, enhanced through the addition of new rental focused features. Optional synchronising panels are available to allow units to be paralleled and the PRO series provides a variable speed clutch fan drive which helps decrease noise output and improve fuel economy when running at partial load or in cooler weather. This is useful when power is required but when reduced sound output is critical.

With a powder coated galvanised steel enclosure and featuring a lifting arch, fork lift pockets and base frame lifting and drag points, the units have been designed with mobility around the worksite in mind.

Rental specific copper cable connections designed for multiple reconnections and CEE and Clipsal sockets are also available on both the PRO150 models. A dual wall fuel tank is available offering a 110% bund/containment for fluids. This fuel tank also features a dedicated drag bar as well as environmental protections.

For rental flexibility, 4 pole circuit breakers, 3 way fuel/changeover to external tank and a battery isolator are standard on all models. Application specific optional attachments are available, including AC battery chargers and jacket water heaters for standby application and permanent magnets excited generators for increased load acceptable.

Service access has been optimised for fast turnaround at the rental yard, normal access doors are fitted with door stays to maintain 120˚ opening. Access is available to the exhaust and radiator area for cleaning through a bolted door.
