Power generation and HVAC specialty rental company Aggreko, plc has launched the cost and energy-efficient Hybrid Power System 3K (HPS3K) into the construction industry.

The alternating fuel to battery HPS3K is the latest offering in Aggreko’s power automation portfolio of technology applications. Ideal for the construction industry, HPS3k allows onsite generators to switch from their daily high-load power capacity demand to a battery source when lower power requirements are needed to keep jobsite lights, security systems and computers running.

HPS3K eliminates idling, cuts fuel costs by 50%, and reduces emissions, regardless of the fuel source. For one year-long construction project, five Aggreko HPS3K units providing 500 kW of total power delivered $1,500 to $1,600 in fuel savings per week — more than $80,000 in savings in one year.

The application also increases up time, as it increases reliability with Tier4 technology and reduces failures associated with overheating and excessive idle time.

The HPS3K battery unit requires no maintenance and with its intelligent, fully automated controls and switching, no manual intervention. When the primary generator is switched off, the HPS3K system provides 12.5 hours of a 500-watt load or 2.5 hours of a 3,000-watt load before the inverter charger switches on the main generator for recharging. While recharging, the batteries continue to provide load back-up service as needed.
