Al Masaood Power unveils mobile electric power generator with MTU diesel genset
Al Masaood Power Division has developed a mobile electric power generator solution tailor-made for the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA). The new solution is aimed at providing immediate power supply to fit the demands of any emergency, on- or off-road, in the UAE.
The mobile power generation system mounted on a 5-axle 10X8 truck incorporates an MTU diesel generator 20V4000 DS2750, which will provide a baseload bridge to permanent power installations or to backup power in the wake of any emergency, plant shutdowns, or grid instability in the city and in isolated locations as well.
The emergency generator is currently the biggest transportable generator ever produced in the UAE and is capable of producing up to 2500 kVA of prime power, sufficient to light up over 120 households on average.
Moreover, the truck on which the MTU Diesel generator is mounted features a half-axle suspension system, that makes it stable on all terrains, and absorbs vibrations in order to offer protection to the generator and increased comfort for the driver and operators. This in turn can ensure faster power recovery for consumers.
Rasso Bartenschlager, General Manager, Al Masaood Power Division, said “We are proud to collaborate with DEWA on developing this new UAE-made solution. The solution was engineered in response to Authority’s proactive long-term strategy to generate flawless power supply and consumption in Dubai, and to support its overall vision for a sustainable future for the Emirate. The new diesel generator uses world-class MTU technology that is characterized with low fuel consumption, high reliability and availability of power, in addition to long maintenance intervals. Furthermore, with the all-terrain agility of this solution DEWA will be able to supply electrical power wherever needed.”
“This new emergency generator marks yet another significant achievement for Al Masaood Power Division and further cements our long-established lead within the power industry. Our decades-long expertise and commitment in power generation systems has enabled us to successfully provide some of the most efficient and effective solutions to our valued customers and consumers, thanks to Al Masaood dedicated and competent team and our collaboration with MTU, one of the leading worldwide suppliers of decentralized energy systems based on diesel-and gas-engines, and our highly qualified and selected suppliers have been instrumental factors in this success,” added Bartenschlager.
