Hipower Systems’ 313Kw HRNG-400 and 410Kw HRNG-510 generators to use Waukesha engines
By Renée Francoeur
December 31, 2015 – Hipower Systems, a manufacturer of power generation and power distribution equipment, says it has developed two generators designed to take advantage of GE Distributed Power’s Waukesha natural gas engines. The engines will debut in the Hipower Systems 313Kw HRNG-400 and 410Kw HRNG-510 natural gas generators.
For the HRNG-400, Hipower Systems is using the 400 BHP, 1800 RPM Waukesha F18SE-EPA engine. The HRNG-510 will be driven by the 530 BHP, 1800 RPM Waukesha H24SE-EPA.
According to Hipower, both engines can adapt to run fuel ranging from pipeline-quality gas to propane with minimal derate (reduction in power rating). They can also run off most wellhead gases without the need for extensive fuel conditioning or filtering, the company adds.
