John Holt raises focus on IPP; unveils full generator range

Mar 30, 2015

John Holt Plc said yesterday that its Independent Power Plants (IPP) unit now has the capacity to develop, build & manage power projects of all sizes for improved supply of power equipment such as transformers, hybrid generators, gas generators and pre – paid meters.

John Holt had in a statement in Lagos said that its IPP unit has a robust assortment of power services, including power plant management, energy audits, capacity building, technical training, power system redesign services and power management.

The statement indicated that the gas generators are fuelled by natural gas to produce electricity for homes and industries. The Gas generators have proved to be a useful backup device for electricity provision when regular supply fails. The Gas generators are dependable, cost effective and Eco- friendly.

It said that John Holt Hybrid generators combine advanced generator technology with integrated renewable energy for the most fuel-efficient, off-grid power available. The Hybrid generator integrates solar panels and/or wind turbines seamlessly with the generator via direct connection with the inverter. The John Holt Hybrid generator charges the batteries either through solar and/or wind turbines, public mains or by running the engine thereby consuming up to 90% less fuel than a conventional generator.

According to the statement, for other needs, John Holt Plc has also announced the introduction of the John Holt Premier range of diesel generators covering models from 12.5kVA to 2,200kVA.

The Premier range is powered by genuine Perkins engines (UK), manufactured to exacting standards by world class manufacturers in Europe and assembled by John Holt’s highly skilled team of technicians in compliance with the Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP).

The statement which was signed by the Head of Production/Service, Engr. Dr. Ben Iheakam, stated that among several key features, the generators have an in-built Automatic Transfer Switch (A.T.S) function in the Panel which with only minor electrical adjustments at minimal cost allows the generating set to either start or shut down automatically when power from the mains or another source fails or is restored.

Iheakam noted that the premier range of diesel generators also boasts a maintenance alarm which is programmed in the panel to beep and alert the user anytime the generating set is due for service maintenance.

“They are also equipped with accurate electronic fuel gauge, a feature which enables the user to ascertain the level of diesel in the base tank of the generator from the panel. The user can also pre-set the threshold level of diesel in the base tank at which the generator safely and automatically shuts down. With this feature, the generator will not run out of diesel, thus eliminating lost time, reducing wear and tear and associated costs resulting from ‘bleeding’ and other required remedial measures.
