Process and control today | Diesel engine expert makes Stage V generator possible
11/02/2021 DiPerk Power Solutions
As the deadline for new Stage V emissions legislation approaches the end of the year, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of generator sets are gearing up by sourcing compliant engines and technologies. To help Industrial Power Generation (IPG) build its first Stage V generator set, DiPerk Power Solutions supplied the company with a new Perkins® Stage V diesel engine. The new engine means that IPG’s new generator is now up to standard and can be installed in the London Low Emission Zone and other areas.
Phase V is the first new emissions legislation to affect the power generation industry in ten years. With its introduction, OEMs must power their generators using engines equipped with after-treatment technologies, such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which monitor and limit particulate matter (PM).
Based in Doncaster, IPG produces diesel generator sets for various applications and industries. Over the years, his portfolio has included collaboration with HeidelbergCement in Africa, Nestlé in Ethiopia and Nigeria, and the Norwegian government. When IPG was approached by an existing customer to build a Stage V generator set, they turned to DiPerk to supply a new diesel engine for the generator set.
DiPerk has already started supplying diesel engines that meet Stage V requirements, allowing OEMs to build compliant generator sets ahead of the upcoming deadline. DiPerk’s compliant engines and extensive knowledge of the new legislation enabled it to uniquely support IPG in its first Phase V project and bring its first generator set to the UK market.
“As part of the project, we supplied IPG with a Perkins 1200 series motor for the 120 kVA unit specified by IPG,” said Jamie Gibbon, electric motor sales representative at DiPerk. “The engine was fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF), a catalytic converter and an engine control module (ECM) that controls the AdBlue pump.
“We knew how important this project was to IPG, being its first Phase V company, and so we made sure that the motor delivered the power needed, reached key power nodes and included the necessary post-processing before. that IPG does not install it. “
Bob Whaley, Deputy Managing Director of IPG, added: “With the support of DiPerk and our own team, we were able to complete the generator in 40 business days. We have now delivered it to our customer in London, where it will be used on a construction site in a residential area near South Bank. The new mobile unit uses battery storage technology to charge during the day, so it’s ready to go at night. The new engine was crucial – without it the machine wouldn’t be allowed inside the capital’s low-emission zone.
Stage V is the first European emissions legislation that applies directly to generator set OEMs like IPG. Manufacturers now have until December 31, 2021 to put their machines on the market.
