Power rental company Aggreko has launched a range of Stage V multi-engine generators.

The new PowerMX range consists of the PowerMX3, a three-engine generator in a single ISO 20ft container, and the dual-engine 1.25MVA PowerMX2 Stage V generator.

Aggreko said the range delivers modular power in one containerised solution that can rapidly be scaled up or down depending on the power requirement.

It said it is designed for customers requiring a power package to provide “additional capacity, enhance resilience, overcome power capacity constraints and grid limitations.

The generators operate with a load-on-demand system, which means they can adjust autonomously to the required power. Meanwhile, advanced control features and the multi engine design is said to provide power throughout the load range up to 1.35MVA.

The automated system can also activate engines as necessary, while also lowering the risks of inefficiencies and potential equipment issues when running at low loads for prolonged periods. 

At the same time, the new Stage V Certified generator is approved for diesel, Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), Gas to Liquid (GTL) and B10 fuels.

David McDonald, head of power generation products at Aggreko, said the units deliver best-in-class efficiency and helps to reduce emissions; “Harnessing the full capabilities of the first of its kind PowerMX3, in addition to the PowerMX2, we can support our customers with their sustainability goals without compromise.

“The need to adhere to even more stringent emission regulations is often a priority, particularly for large, multi MW projects. This results in an increased requirement for Stage V solutions that are also compatible with greener fuels.

He added that the POWERMX range will benefit energy intensive sectors due to its multi engine solution that delivers “lower emissions while affording flexible power provision and security of supply.”

The launch will be added to its Greener Upgrades solutions, which it unveiled in 2023. The range consists of battery energy storage solutions (BESS), oil-free air compressors, steam boilers, Stage V generators and chillers.
