Inmesol Stage V Generators
Stage V / Stage 5 Emissions Compliant Generators are now a requirement for any non-road going mobile machinery and plant. Any new generators required for rental, hire, mobile applications, construction sites, entertainment events, weddings and other non-permanent or non-standby applications are now required to be Stage V / Stage 5 emissions compliant and Hampshire Generators are pleased to be able to offer units at several ratings.
Regulation (EU) No 2016/1628 is the legislation that details the requirements of the emissions limits for engines of non-road mobile machinery – also known as Stage V. We are now in the transition period whereby it is possible to still purchase Stage IIIa engine powered generators (using engines manufactured in 2018 or 2019) and operate them in mobile generators but we are approaching the date where any generator must be sold as a Stage V unit.
Stage V emissions compliance is a big step up from the Stage IIIa generators – the level of equipment required on the engine is significant and impacts the price (by 30 to 40%) and size of the generator. Adding diesel particulate filters, Adblue systems and catalytic converters is expensive and takes up a lot of room.
The move to Stage V engines can be seen as a good thing – there are many diesel generators in use that are old and non-emissions compliant. These units run for long periods without any exhaust emission reduction; this adds a lot of particulate and NOx emissions pollution into our atmosphere and makes air quality bad for us all. Moving to cleaner energy must be a step in the right direction. Hampshire Generators is an ISO14001 Certified company and we do all we can to reduce our environmental impact. Helping you choose the right Stage IIIa or Stage V diesel generator is part of that commitment.
Using the very high quality Kohler, Volvo, Yanmar and Scania engines, assembled by market leading manufacturers, Hampshire Generators can supply generators that ensure you are fully compliant with the latest regulations.
