For operational purposes, the service company of one of the main distributors responsible for supplying electricity to the Republic of Panama has purchased 11 HIMOINSA generator sets, ready and able to generate up to 5 MW of power when working in parallel.
Through RIGSA, its local distributor, HIMOINSA has delivered six model HMW-510 T6 generator sets and five model HFW-340 T6 generator sets to Gas Natural Fenosa Servicios in Panama. These sets are needed to guarantee the supply of energy in the event of incidents in the distribution grid. The electricity company distributes electricity to more than six hundred thousand customers in four different regions of the Republic of Panama.
The eleven generator sets feature a DSE 8610 control unit and have been set up to work in parallel if necessary and to supply up to 5MW of power. In addition, to meet the needs of the energy market in Panama, these sets can be reconfigured in different voltages in order to be able to run with different voltages depending on their location and the demand.
In many cases, these generator sets will be operating in urban areas, close to residential areas, so the high levels of soundproofing guaranteed by HIMOINSA were very much appreciated. The canopy of each unit is coated on the inside with class M0 volcanic rock wool, with a density of 145kg/m³.
