HiPower Systems, a manufacturer of power-generation and power distribution equipment in the U.S. and Canada, has announced that the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) has certified two of its natural gas generator lines for the CSA-C22.2 No. 14-13 and No. 100-04 (R2013) standards in Class 4215 01―Electric Generating Plants. With this certification, all HiPower Systems backup natural gas generators in the 20 to 400 Kw range, as well as its prime power/rental natural gas generators from 20 Kva up to 430 Kva, are fully CSA certified. The certified natural gas generators join the HIPOWER SYSTEMS diesel generator line, the majority of which were already certified by the CSA.
“HiPower Systems builds quality into every product it manufactures, and the CSA has recognized this fact by certifying the majority of our generators―more than any other manufacturer in North America,” said HiPower Systems President Rafael Acosta. “It is very gratifying to have our dedication and hard work recognized by being able to place these marks upon our products.”
The CSA is a provider of product testing and certification services for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, gas and a variety of other products. The CSA mark indicates that a product, process or service meets the requirements of an applicable CSA standard or another recognized document used as a basis for certification. Certification of a product is an ongoing process that involves follow up factory inspections and retail surveillance to ensure conformity.
These certifications, and the marks that reflect them, underscore the product excellence of HiPower Systems generators, which already comply with numerous globally recognized standards relating to the NEC (National Electrical Code), MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and other benchmarks.
“The CSA helps make the world safer, and their certification processes facilitate international trust and global trade,” said Acosta. “We cannot imagine a world without standards organizations such as the CSA, just as we cannot imagine a HIPOWER SYSTEMS generator without their marks.”
