Atlas CEA QIS 220 Generator Lifted to Great Heights

Designed to combine maximum choice with exceptional reliability and performance the extensive range of Atlas Copco generators are constructed to suit a diverse range of applications. The QIS 220 is a highly popular generator within the range thanks to its low cost of ownership, reliable performance and risk-free operation.


As a highly efficient 220kVa diesel standby generator the Atlas Copco QIS 220 has a footprint 25% smaller than its rivals, while still providing an impressive 13% higher load factor and 31.7L/h (75% load) fuel consumption.


From primary to critical backup power needs, the QIS 220 is designed for optimal performance in the most demanding conditions and for a diverse range of applications, from data centres and healthcare to manufacturing, utilities, retail and dense living. Thanks to its versatility and how user friendly it is to operate; it can be easily integrated into all projects.


Designed and built to the very highest standards, the QIS range undergoes extreme testing for both components and fully assembled units – resulting in exceptional reliability.


Stowe Electrical, a leading electrical and communications installation and service contractor, have been providing electrical services for nearly 100 years. Throughout this time Stowe has developed a strong background in all facets of electrical power installations and maintenance, and has a distinguished reputation for performance, quality and reliability.


The team at Stowe Electrical undertake the electrical services on small to large scale projects and are geared to provide rapid and efficient 24-hour service covering additions, alterations and preventative and breakdown maintenance across all projects.


The team at Stowe Electrical recently needed a generator that could supply stand by power for a new 45 storey high rise apartment complex, built overlooking the ocean at well-known Broadbeach, QLD.


“We needed a generator that had the capacity to run emergency stand by power for the complex in the event of an outage, particularly to run emergency lighting and power for the elevators”, said Gary Catchpole Senior Project Manager at Stowe.


The generator had to be craned in to position on top of the 45-storey apartment complex where it was installed on the roof. “We originally placed an order with a competitor but their unit was going to be 7 weeks later than initially planned and the onsite tower crane was coming down in 2 weeks, so there was a limited window of time to get the generator in to position”, said Gary.


The team at Atlas CEA had the QIS 220 available but with only 2 days to build the machine to Stowes specification it was going to be an extremely tight turn around.


“Our team had to build the machine to Stowes specification within the short time frame allowing for a purpose-built frame with certified lifting eyes to be made for the crane. This had to be supplied and fitted to install the unit”, said Atlas CEA General Manager of Sales Kevin Ennis.


“This was completed and then sent to site before the generator was lifted in to position on the roof of the 45-storey complex without any complications”, said Kevin.


Now in operation the QIS 220 hasn’t missed a beat, “We have full confidence in the 220kVa to handle the task’, said Kevin


“Not only is the generator highly reliable, but our team of technical experts have the knowledge and skill set to ensure the unit is ready to go when needed and is well maintained in preparation for use”.
