This agreement has been reached for the UK market and those European countries where Flogas operates to facilitate access to LPG and LNG for gas generator set customers.
Leading power generator manufacturer HIMOINSA has partnered with liquid gas supplier Flogas Britain to provide a cleaner, more cost-effective energy solution for UK businesses currently relying on diesel generators. Together, they’ll provide turnkey liquid gas solutions to companies with power generation needs, helping them to immediately lower their emissions and make significant cost savings following red diesel subsidy changes in April in the United Kingdom market.
HIMOINSA operates in the UK market through its subsidiary Himoinsa Power Solutions (HPS) offering gas and diesel generator sets, lighting towers and energy storage and distribution systems to the market. Clive Dix, Managing Director at HPS explains that HIMOINSA has a 40-year track record of experience and one of the key decision of the company was to start to manufacture gas generators, more than ten years ago, in order to ensure a greener power. “Our commitment is to drive the transition to a sustainable solution combining our diesel generators with alternative power solutions (biodiesel, battery, storage, hydrogen…) being the gas genset one of our key business. That’s why our partnership with Flogas has been a strategic deal to ensure a comprehensive gas power solution to our customers ”, Clive adds.
“Businesses running their generators on diesel will have recently faced significant price hikes, now that the subsidy has been lifted across most sectors,” says David Taylor, Commercial Director at Flogas. “They also need to meet increasingly pressing sustainability targets and legislative requirements, which means many are now looking to invest in lower carbon alternatives”. This is where liquid gas offers the perfect solution. Not only is it cheaper than diesel, but it’s much cleaner too, producing far fewer carbon and other pollutant emissions that impact air quality.
“This is why we wanted to team up with a key player in the power generation business. Himoinsa’s not only a leading manufacturer with top quality technology and expertise, but it’s also forward thinking and shares our vision to help businesses on the road to a lower carbon future. By joining forces, we can help companies make that transition from more polluting diesel and save them money in the process. Plus, we’ll manage everything for them – from design and specification, through to installation and ongoing Support”, adds Taylor.
As well as cutting costs and carbon emissions, liquid gas also emits far fewer nitrous oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM), making it the perfect solution for emission-sensitive sites. It’s highly dependable, can be stored directly onsite (above or underground) and delivers consistent power, keeping productivity high. It’s also quiet to run and safe to store, with no risk of spilling or being stolen.
As partners, Flogas and Himoinsa will provide completely tailored liquid gas solutions for businesses with both temporary and permanent power generation needs. They will be able to select from HIMOINSA’s range of state-of-the-art generators and will benefit from a reliable liquid gas supply from Flogas along with dedicated customer support. Liquid gas tanks will also be fitted with auto ordering technology, which triggers a refill when levels are running low and ensures customers always have the power they need.
The HIMOINSA dealers and customers are free to get gas from any supplier that they prefer. Nevertheless, the company goal is to support its dealers and rental companies to secure its gas supply that’s why we have reached the agreement with a consolidated, trustworthy and quality company as Flogas. “Our gas portfolio has been refined and improved for 10 years thanks to the accumulated know-how. Thanks to this, we have unique solutions in the world such as our range of LPG generators with integrated tank (patent pending). And we also offer optimal solutions for each application and type of gas, ensuring that the customer gets the most from our equipment. Our commitment is to make life easier for companies which are looking to gas to power solutions, so thanks to this partneship, we supply a state-of-the-art gas generator and Flogas ensures a smooth fuel supply and storage”, explains Manuel Aguilera, Global Gas Unit Head.
“We’re excited to be working alongside the best in the power generation business, as we help customers adopt a more futureproof energy solution,” adds David Taylor. “Switching from diesel to liquid gas will deliver immediate cost and emissions savings, but it will also set them on the right road to net zero emissions. Over time, Bio-LPG will take its place, and when it does, those running on liquid gas can simply drop it into existing equipment with no changes needs – making them future ready.”
