What just a few months ago was a demand turned into a challenge for the INMESOL R&D department -as we have anticipated in the post “Transport Solutions through design GENERATOR SETS”-, today has turned into a reality.
The first shipment comprised of 6 units of the new IIRN-165 generator set model has just left the INMESOL facilities, on its way to France.
Speaking in terms of power, this lorry carries 6 generators with the new design, capable of generating up to 900 KVA of PRP power. Up until several months ago, two lorries like this one were needed to transport the same amount of power.
CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and expenses associated to fuel and labour force are reduced by half.
Why was it a challenge?
In order to transport 6 units in 40-feet long lorries, the only action necessary was to reduce by a few centimetres the canopies that house these models.
The difficulty laid in making this reduction, overcoming potential overheating problems and an increase in sound emission levels in the equipment.
The larger the canopy opening to enable enough air flow to circulate and prevent engine overheating, the easier the sound emissions escape, and the higher the perception of those sound emissions.
The R&D department managed to resolve the problem through the use of a design that offers optimal air flow (so that overheating does not occur) and a good sound trapping system (elements that absorb sound emissions) to prevent the sound from escaping the enclosure.
