Atlas Copco showcases new products at MEE
Dubai, February 9, 2012
Atlas Copco, a leader in industrial tooling and equipment, showcased its latest range of diesel powered generator sets and lighting masts at the Middle East Electricity exhibition in Dubai.
The products included the ultra tough HardHat design QAX range of portable generators.
With a canopy constructed of linear medium density polyethelene (LMDP), the QAX30 30kVA portable generator is designed to be exceptionally durable, able to withstand the harshest of conditions and treatment, a statement said.
This was demonstrated during the three-day exhibition, which opened on February 7 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre and concludes today (February 9).
Michael Sagermann, regional business line manager at Atlas Copco Middle East said that the ultra durable HardHat design increases the life and resale value of the portable generator, at the same time saving users on operational costs.
“Inevitably generators are bumped and scratched to various levels that make the machine look old and unattractive,” said Sagermann, who added that the lifespan of the QAX20 lasts years longer than normal portable generators, while holding an increased amount of its original price tag for resale versus conventional steel.
“The LMDP is structurally strong, does not scratch or dent thereby keeping it looking very new and upon reaching the point of time for replacement increases its resale value on the second hand market.”
In addition to the QAX30, Atlas Copco also showcased the QLTH40 lighting tower and the QAC1000 containerised generator for the first time at Middle East Electricity.
“Middle East Electricity has always been an excellent platform to increase awareness that Atlas Copco is serious about the generator business,” added Sagermann. “We have been producing generators for 25 years, and many customers from our successful compressor business were not aware we could offer generators and lighting sets as well.
“The exhibition is a great opportunity for us to connect with our current customers and show any new developments, as well as to gain exposure to new potential customers who strengthen our business sustainability.” – TradeArabia News Service
