As part of an ongoing, company-wide programme of investment, Pinewood MBS Lighting have significantly expanded their range of location services with delivery of a collection of brand new mobile generator units.
Forming part of the company’s transport fleet expansion, the super silent units use the very latest acoustic design and technology making them the quietest generators in the market.
This first consignment of 250kW sets are mounted on the very latest Euro 6 emission compliant chassis, custom built to feature substantial equipment compartments, compatibility with PMBS customisable rolling equipment racks and 1500kg capacity 1.8m tail lifts.
The 250kW output is easily switchable between three and single phase. For added flexibility, each generator set can be fully synchronised, allowing for load sharing or instant seamless power change over for back up. Distribution via Powerlock 2 x 400 amp 3ph, 3 x 400 amp 1ph outlets with RCD protection ensures safe, reliable operation, whilst convenient remote monitoring and control is available using the latest ComAp InteliGen controllers.
The sizable 1200 litre fuel capacity delivers operational benefits through improved running times with reduced fuelling costs. For extra convenience, on-board tracking provides live updates for precision control over vehicle movement and scheduling.
Commenting on the delivery, Pinewood MBS Managing Director Darren Smith says “This initial delivery is the first in our new line of custom built, intelligent generator sets. Mobile power is an essential part of our location service and these new units significantly boost the quality and extent of the packages we are able to provide.
I am particularly proud of the solar panels we have added to power the tail lifts. Not only does this eliminate the risk of running the batteries flat during operation whilst the engine is off, but it eradicates the need to run the engine at all when using the tail lift. This great little feature further demonstrates how are able to deliver an improved customer experience whilst also offering environmentally conscious solutions as part of our ongoing commitment as an albert approved supplier”.
