New HIMOINSA generators with Stage V engines

TRME HimoinsaHIMOINSA is working on the design of a new range of generator sets with STAGE V engines, based on EU Regulation 2016/1628 for off-road mobile machinery (NRMM)

The new S5 generators will incorporate all manner of design and innovation features that will make it one of the most technologically advanced and competitive products in the European rental market, according to the manufacturer.

HIMOINSA will continue to offer generator sets with Stage IIIA engines for a period of up to two years after the new regulation goes into effect. The transition period for generator sets with powers of less than 56kW and more than 130kW will last until December 2020. However, models with powers between 56 and 130kW, with Stage IIIA engines, will continue to be marketed until December 2021.

S5 generator sets 

The new generator sets range comprises models with Yanmar, FPT and Scania engines, and incorporates a new canopy design to accommodate the machine’s new post-treatment system as well as the electrical installations. One of the best innovations in the S5 generator sets will be their control panels, meticulously designed to ensure a reliable and efficient coordination with the control panels of the new Stage V engines.

Regulation (EU) 2016/1628  

In order to gradually reduce air pollution, Directive 97/68/EC, which established requirements relating to emission limits (stages I, II, IIIA, IIIB and IV) and type-approval procedures for engines for non-road mobile machinery, was adopted in 1997.

In January 2017, Directive 97/68/EC was repealed and superseded by Regulation (EU) No 2016/1628, which establishes emission limits for gaseous and particulate pollutants (known as Stage V) for engines of non-road mobile machinery, as well as administrative and technical requirements relating to type approval. This regulation will affect products marketed from 1 January 2019. However, it provides for a ‘transition’ period, in which equipment with engines manufactured in 2018, so not Stage V-approved, may be sold.
