Himoinsa and Repsol expand LPG partnership
10 February 2023
Generator manufacturer Himoinsa and energy company Repsol recently announced a strengthening of their partnership in Spain and Portugal for 2023.
This will enable turnkey solutions to be offered to customers interested in acquiring LPG generator sets, ensuring the availability of equipment and the supply of gas to them.
“LPG, in addition to saving money compared to traditional fuels at the moment, is considered a transitional power source and reduces carbon emissions and other important pollutants such as CO2, NOx and particulate matter,” said Manuel Aguilera, Himoinsa’s Global Gas Unit Head.
He added that Himoinsa’s commitment is to promote the transition towards a sustainable solution by combining diesel generators with alternative energy solutions such as biodiesel, battery storage, hydrogen and others) with the LPG generator set being one of the key products in this transition process.
Himoinsa’s gas power generation equipment ranges from 30kVA to 3,000 kVA (LPG, natural gas and biogas), including a solution for which a patent has been applied for a generator set with integrated LPG storage that can be connected to an external liquefied gas tank to extend running time.
Félix de Orduña, LPG Commercial Director at Repsol, said that “Repsol offers different LPG supply options, depending on the needs of each of our customers. On the one hand, there are those who need long-term, intensive generator set operating running time, using traditional bulk gas tanks and skids; and on the other hand, those who require a shorter operating running time, and therefore we offer a supply container with canned gas. We have developed an approved metal structure with nine 35kg propane gas containers, which comply with all safety standards and can be easily transported.”
The two companies say that gas power generation is set to grow by close to 40 per cent over the next five years and that the reductions in emissions and noise will make them increasingly popular with hirers suppling equipment for events and in urban areas with low emission zones.
