MHI Develops LPG Portable Generator

October 10, 2013

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has completed development of the industry's first portable power generator with a 2.2 kilovolt-ampere (kVA) class small engine that operates on propane gas, otherwise known as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).


Full-scale marketing of the new product model MGC2200G, dubbed "MEGASEG", will commence in November. Because LPG can be stored over long periods without deterioration and the generator's 10-kilogram (kg) tank enables roughly 10 hours of usage of electrical equipment with outputs totaling up to 2.2kVA, MHI plans to capture demand for the MEGASEG in diverse applications; for example, as an emergency power source in line with business continuity planning (BCP) by the corporate sector or kept in reserve by local government agencies and as a portable power supply unit for outdoor events.
