Gen-Set Targets 10,000 Hour Maintenance

Himoinsa has launched a new gaseous-fueled generator set that the company said requires only two maintenance intervals during its entire service life. Driven by a Yanmar gas engine, the HGY-25 gen-set is designed to operate continuously 24/7 for 14 months, making it the suitable for oil and gas wells in remote locations, the company said.

Available in 50 Hz and 60 Hz configurations, the HGY-25 gen-set delivers 28 kVA continuous power. The unit’s estimated service life of 30,000 hours until overhaul means that it requires only two service events throughout its entire working life.

Himoinsa said the Yanmar engine incorporates patented technology designed to extend the working life of the spark plugs up to 10,000 hours and other enhancements include enlarging the filters and increasing oil and coolant storage capacity.
