HIMOINSA, a manufacturer of power technology solutions, has commemorated the production of its 100,000th generator set with a Yanmar engine
The achievement was celebrated in an event that took place at its Spanish headquarters and brought a large part of the staff together with the members of the company’s board of directors.
Himoinsa and Yanmar began their partnership in 2006, with the latter becoming one of the main engine suppliers for the manufacture of HIMOINSA generator sets. This business relationship intensified in 2015 when HIMOINSA became part of the Yanmar Group by integrating into the Yanmar Energy System business unit. The two companies have subsequently collaborated on new projects and product development, further reinforcing their growth strategy.
Takehito Yamaoka, ceo of Yanmar Holdings, commented, “I’d like to congratulate all HIMOINSA employees for reaching the manufacture of the 100,000th generator set with a Yanmar engine. Thanks to their efforts, we have propelled Yanmar to a solid position in the power generation sector, and I am sure that this figure will grow significantly every year.”
HIMOINSA and Yanmar have been working closely in recent years to reinforce their leadership role in the power generation sector (up to 45 kVA). This year they expect to reach the cumulative figure of 110,000 generator sets with TNV engines.
“We are very happy to celebrate this achievement, which is just one of many to come. We are ‘A Yanmar Company’, and teamwork and innovation are in our DNA,” stated Francisco Gracia, president and executive director of HIMOINSA. “We are immersed in various new product development projects that will allow both companies to grow together and explore new market niches in the power generation sector.”
Yanmar engines with T4F and Stage V certifications have been selected for HIMOINSA Mobile Power generator sets up to 45 kVA in order to minimise environmental impact.
With the goal of continuing to intensify the presence of Yanmar in the HIMOINSA product portfolio, the company recently incorporated the Yanmar AY40 engine for power ratings over 1MW, offering the market one of the most efficient solutions for mission-critical projects.
