The rental market is evolving towards new necessities, where efficiency in power generation and a greater control of polluting emissions mark the action guidelines of this sector. For this reason, HIMOINSA has developed innovative designs to continue to be the benchmark in power solutions for rental companies. These rental products will be displayed at BAUMA, the world’s largest trade fair for construction equipment, which will take place in Munich from April 8th to 14th.

HIMOINSA’s commitment is to design quieter, cleaner and more user-friendly generator sets. That’s why the genset manufacturer offers new generator ranges such as the S5 Range – Stage V generators–, the Silent Plus Range, the Rental Gas Range… to continue along the path towards a reduction of particulate and NOx emissions.
Generator sets must comply with environmental and regulatory obligations such as the EU Stage V emissions regulations, so the new S5 generator sets with Stage V engines incorporate all manner of design and innovation features that make it one of the most technologically advanced and competitive products in the European rental market.
Models with Yanmar, FPT and Scania engines incorporate “a carefully designed canopy to host the new post-treatment system as well as the electrical installation, and new, more efficient and safer control panels”, says Guillermo Elum, EMEA Director at HIMOINSA, who adds that from 2019 to 2021, the European market will be immersed in a period of transition and that rental companies will need time to adapt their fleets to the new regulation.
During this period of transition, HIMOINSA will continue to offer generator sets with Stage IIIA engines for a period of up to 24 months after the new regulation goes into effect.
Rental gas gensets
Rental gas generator sets offer reduced emissions and same Stage V certification than their diesel stage V generator counterparts, thanks to the use of environmentally friendly fuels which is an increasingly interesting option for rental companies.
Manuel Aguilera, Gas Product Manager at HIMOINSA, considers that “gas generators are a game changer for rental companies looking for quieter and cleaner generators. One of the key points is the operating expenses and, indeed, gas gensets guarantee the most reduced OPEX due to the fact that maintenance intervals are longer”.
BAUMA attendees will have the chance to discover the HRGO 40 LPG; a rental generator set powered by LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) which provides 37 kVA of reliable power. Its rental canopy version incorporates LPG storage for more than 35 hours of continuous operation (70% PRP) without refuelling. These generators can also be connected to an external tank to extend their running time for as long as desired.
The integrated tanks are LPG-certified for vehicles, making them a versatile option for the rental sector, where there is a high demand for mobile equipment that is easy to transport and can refuel at an LPG pump at a service station. At this point in time, “HIMOINSA is the only genset manufacturer that produces gas generators with integrated LPG tanks”, Aguilera adds.
The HRS-3150 D5 / 6 transformer substation is a portable transformer substation, in an easy-to-transport 10-foot container, allowing the voltage transformation of two generator sets connected in parallel at the same time and able to transform up to 3,150 kVA of power. A 20-foot container version (HRS-6300 D5/6) is also available, with identical performance but making it possible to connect four generator sets in parallel at the same time, transforming up to 6,300 kVA of power. The transformer substations guarantee 98.5% of efficiency and minimum guaranteed power loss.
Silent plus generators
HIMOINSA will display its HRFW 200 S+ model at BAUMA; quieter generator sets providing 200 kVA of power. It features a fuel tank with a capacity of almost 1000L that guarantees an extended running time for the rental sector. Intended for work in locations with higher acoustic restrictions, these Silent Plus gensets have been designed with a dual-core exhaust system, first-class insulation, control panel insulation, and a high level of soundproofing.
Compact, autonomous and resistant lighting towers, such as the APOLO COMPACT HEAVY DUTY, with LED spotlights and reinforced extendable stabilizers, which offers up to 191,820 lumens of lighting capacity with low fuel consumption; 0.8L/H or 125 hours autonomy, more than 5 days working without refuelling.
