07/15/2015 | HIPOWER SYSTEMS Hosts Power Generation Technology "Lunch and Learn" for the Association of Energy Engineers-Kansas City Chapter
HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power generation and power distribution equipment in the U.S. and Canada, today announced it recently hosted a lunch and learn event and tour for the Kansas City Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). The event, developed at the request of AEE-Kansas City President Steve Pierson, included a presentation on new hybrid generator technology and market trends in the power generation industry. Afterward, the group was led on a tour of HIPOWER SYSTEMS’ assembly and test facility, where attendees were able to see, close up, a variety of HIPOWER SYSTEMS generators.
“With power generation increasingly decentralized and backup power generation becoming so important, we were interested in learning more about HIPOWER SYSTEMS and emerging generator technologies in general,” said Pierson. “HIPOWER SYSTEMS provided our members with a unique manufacturer's perspective regarding the latest market and power generation equipment technology developments. Our members were impressed with this smart technology.”
The idea for the event, Pierson noted, came when a large engineering firm headquartered in Kansas City suggested that the AEE-Kansas City reach out to HIPOWER SYSTEMS to request a presentation, which resulted in the partnership. At the event, HIPOWER SYSTEMS representatives including President Rafael Acosta and Oil & Gas Business Development Manager Doug Evans offered insight into recent developments in off-grid power generation, including HIPOWER SYSTEMS’ newest generator, the HPS DCV Hybrid Generator.
The HPS DCV is an ultra-rugged, low-maintenance generator designed to maintain full charge and power continuity for 48vdc battery systems. Available in 1500W or 3000W models, it was developed specifically for use in off-grid settings such as telecommunications towers, wind and solar farms, and rural homes and businesses.
“This meeting gave our engineers the opportunity to learn more about the underlying technologies for these types of equipment, so they can design the best possible systems to support the needs of the customer,” said Pierson. “We have a large membership of energy engineers, and HIPOWER SYSTEMS offered to host more of these meetings in the future. Our organization looks forward to visiting HIPOWER's North American headquarters, again.”
According to Acosta, HIPOWER SYSTEMS welcomes such opportunities, as well. “As a company that places emphasis on educating our partners and customers, we are happy to host events like these, where engineers and others involved with power generation technologies have a chance to hear about the latest news and innovations.”
