Atlas Copco Hybrid Power Solutions Take Sustainability to New Levels

Published: 27/6, 2022

Energy storage solutions featuring long-life, low maintenance, and high-density Lithium-ion (Li-on) batteries working in hybrid mode with diesel-driven generators are the perfect solution for companies operating in demanding and noise-sensitive applications like metropolitan construction and events. These hybrid power solutions help them meet the toughest sustainability targets while achieving maximum levels of productivity and efficiency. Ideal for high-demanding applications that require a continuous flow of clean and quiet energy, Atlas Copco’s range of Energy Storage Systems offers users 40,000 hours of uninterrupted operation and an overload capability of 150%. These units can operate autonomously for up to 12 hours and rapidly recharge in 1.5 hours. And its first-in-class Lithium-ion batteries are capable of working in temperature ranges of -4 to 122°F (-20 to 50ºC).

Nearly 70% more compact and lightweight than traditional alternatives, these Energy Storage Systems can achieve a completely green solution while operating in island mode, registering zero CO2 emissions and zero noise. When working in hybrid mode, together with a generator, they optimize the solution, reducing noise levels and fuel consumption. This makes the seven-model ZenergiZe Energy Storage Systems range particularly suited to urban environments with noise level restrictions, events, telecoms, and rental applications. Operators can now work with minimum downtime for extended periods, including well into the night if required. Additionally, Atlas Copco’s Energy Storage Systems can store and deliver energy from renewable sources, like solar or wind.

Offering the most efficient hybrid alternative to using a large generator for variable loads is combining Atlans Copco’s Energy Storage Systems with the company’s latest QAS+ Stage V-compliant diesel generators. This approach optimizes generator performance, extends its lifespan by up to 15%, and cuts maintenance and overhaul requirements in half. At the same time, the QAS+ generators feature a built-in power management system that enables rapid and efficient paralleling, ensuring optimal fuel consumption levels and eliminating the need for generators to run with low load levels.

In addition, the QAS+ generator range is, on average, 5-8 dBA quieter than comparable generators and can reduce noise levels by up to six times, depending on the application and the load profile. With a footprint up to 25% smaller than its peers, the QAS+ is easy to transport and use on-site, offering straightforward plug-and-play connectivity. The generator also features a smart variable-speed fan that adjusts the cooling flow to specific requirements, contributes to superior levels of fuel efficiency. Other features of the QAS+ include a user-friendly touchscreen, up to eight sockets, a terminal board, and optional power locks. While the hybrid solution offers optimal benefits to operators, Atlas Copco’s Energy Storage Systems can run with any generator. A single generator can be used with multiple battery-driven units.
