Atlas Copco has appointed Coventry-based Vital Power Limited as authorised distributors for their complete QIS family of diesel generators. This includes the five most recently added models, ranging from 875 to 1420 kVA.
These generators handle the most demanding conditions in both standby and stationary prime applications. Built to Atlas Copco’s time-tested design principles, they respond instantly to an electrical supply interruption and deliver guaranteed performance exactly when it’s needed. Low noise levels allow their use even in residential areas, while their capacious expansion space facilitates modular flexibility and permits plentiful upgrade options.
“Thanks to their reliability, low noise and simplicity of installation and use, these generators can easily be integrated into projects across many industries. And, to realise their full potential, we want to partner with distributors whose sales drive, service and support best exploit the opportunities they are creating” comments Paul Webster, Product Specialist – Generators, “accordingly, we are delighted to have established a relationship with Vital Power, who meets these criteria fully.
“Through Vital Power, customers will have access to the full QIS product range. The company offers an extremely quick response to customer enquiries, which includes FOC surveys as required. They then provide an inhouse turnkey solution including installation, commissioning, ongoing service contracts and all other ancillary services linked to the supply of equipment.”
QIS models are intended for outdoor installation and undergo the most rigorous testing procedure on the market, including a transient behaviour test, ambient temperature performance test, water ingress test and certification, along with extensive noise testing. These features not only minimise environmental impact but also guarantee performance under any conditions.
They deliver fuel consumption savings of 5 per cent on average, are up to four times quieter, and have a 25 per cent smaller footprint than comparable models on the market. All of the generators offer 500 hours service intervals and feature premium engines with high load acceptance, in addition to an IP23 alternator with an auxiliary winding that withstands 300 per cent overcurrent during the first 20 seconds to provide an instant start.
Josh Wright, UK Sales & Marketing Manager at Vital Power, comments on his company and what the QIS line means to them: “We provide a full range of diesel generator products and services to a well-established and varied customer base across the retail, industrial, healthcare and education sectors. These are backed by a management team that has over 30 years’ experience in the rental and standby power markets. After our founding in 2016, we have become one of the fastest-growing diesel generator distributors in the UK.”
Wright continued: “With our rapid growth in diesel generator sales, we were delighted to be given the opportunity to distribute Atlas Copco’s QIS products. We’re not interested in re-branding; we’re proud to promote the Atlas Copco QIS brand name, as it represents an excellent product with a great reputation in the marketplace. We recognise their quality as being second to none and take pride in providing the products to our customers.”
Vital Power recognises that the range is designed to perform reliably and efficiently in both standby and stationary prime power applications, and looks forward to supplying it into data centres, healthcare, manufacturing, utilities, retail and other market sectors.
