Power Electrics' Annual Sustainability Report

Stage V Generator Hire

Stage V generators are specifically designed to meet the low emissions targets set by the EU's Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NNRM) legislation. These sets help us provide increasingly sustainable power solutions that align with our environmental objectives and are part of our Journey to Green.

With an increasing number of major cities in the UK being designated as low-emission zones, Stage V generators are compliant and a critical next step in greener temporary power.

What is Stage V?

Stage V is the fifth iteration of the emission standard as part of the NRMM legislation. The legislation sets the criteria for levels of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter produced for diesel engines.

The expectation is that as the standard is adopted across the UK, there will be a significant reduction in the levels of emissions created, reducing the carbon footprint of many high polluting industries.

“We’ve been excited to kickstart the process of converting our rental fleet over to Stage V. We’re looking to provide the most sustainable temporary power package on the market; combining these Stage V generators running on HVO fuel with our fleet of battery energy storage units (hybrids).”
Andy Pullin, Power Electrics' Director

Stage V Features

To meet the increasing needs of the UK, Power Electrics currently offers Stage V sets ranging from 20kVA up to 500kVA, to cover all manner of projects.

Each of our Stage V generators feature:

  • Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC).
  • Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).
  • Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).
  • Ammonia Slip Catalysts (ASC).
  • AdBlue integration.
  • HVO fuel compatible.
  • Fully lockable sound dampening canopy.
  • Sound dampening mounts.
  • Heavy duty steal base with integrated double walled fuel tank.
  • Forklift pockets and heavy duty drag bar with skid pads.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, all of our diesel generators can be run on HVO fuel. Our fuel department can manage all fuel requirements so you will never run out.

AdBlue is a liquid added to many diesel engines, it is injected through a special catalyst into the exhaust stream, which sets off a chemical reaction that turns NOx into nitrogen and water. This results in a significant reduction in NOx emissions.

Yes, all of our generators can be paired with a BES unit, this can further reduce emissions as the BES unit can minimise the run time of the generators.

Stage IIIA limited the emissions of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter from diesel engines used in NRMM. However, Stage V extends the scope of these regulations to include a wider range of engine types and sizes, and also introduces additional limits on the number of ultrafine particles emitted.

To meet the Stage V emissions standards, mobile generator sets will require advanced engine modifications and off-engine aftertreatment technologies such as diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, and selective catalytic reduction systems, which can effectively reduce emissions of pollutants.

Stage V generators emit significantly lower levels of pollutants compared to earlier generations of mobile generator sets due to advanced engine technologies and off-engine aftertreatment systems. These stricter emissions standards help to improve air quality and reduce the impact of mobile generator sets on public health and the environment.
