An ‘Innovation Stand’ at Atlas Copco’s booth (FS-1108/1) highlights three new products being introduced at Bauma this year, which all help to meet the demands of urban construction sites in particular. They are the E-Air H 250 variable speed drive compressor, the Hi-Light Z3 – which is the company’s first ever battery-powered lighting tower – and the QAS VSG (variable speed generator), International Rental News reports.
Hendrik Timmermans, vice-president of Atlas Copco’s Portable Air division, and Adrian Ridge, president of the Power and Flow Division, spoke to IRN about some of the main features.
Timmermans said, “From enhanced efficiency to improved noise levels and no diesel engine emissions, the benefits of going electric within specific applications cannot be overstated. The new Variable Speed Drive electric compressor range is a game changer when it comes to clean drive technology for rough and dusty environments like underground tunneling and mining.”
