Eminox first to market with approved retrofit emissions control solution for power generators


Launches range of accredited retrofit solutions for gensets and non-road mobile machinery

Emissions control specialist Eminox had developed a complete range of retrofit exhaust aftertreatment systems (EATS) for power generators and non-road mobile machinery (NRMM), enabling them to meet Stage V/5 emissions standards.

This enables operators to comply cost-effectively with regulations such as the London NRMM Low Emission Zone, which came into force on 1 March 2021, other planned Clean Air Zones (CAZ), and the forthcoming Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD). It also enables generators to achieve on-site emissions standards for HS2, Europe’s largest construction project.

Reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions is crucial to improving air quality. Eminox has now launched retrofit exhaust aftertreatment systems covering 37 to 560 kW engine power output, fully integrated into generators, Eminox’s new EMx S5 range of solutions prolong the life of existing machinery, avoiding the requirement to replace them with newer models.

“As we move towards a zero emissions future, there’s an increasing focus on generators and their impact on air quality in cities,” said James Thorpe, UK Sales Manager, Eminox. “Operators need to be able to achieve compliance with emissions regulations, and our new range of accredited retrofit solutions enables them to deliver this cost-effectively and quickly, safeguarding their investment in existing plant.”

Falcon Tower Crane Services has worked with Eminox to retrofit its generators in order to address emissions compliance. It provides a range of generator services and operates a fleet of over 60 diesel generators. “We collaborated with Eminox and they delivered a low-cost solution to support our business requirements now and in the future,” said Andy Teanby, Generator Manager, Falcon Tower Crane Services. “Our adoption of this retrofit emissions reduction technology enables us to meet Stage V emissions standards.”

With over 42 years of experience in the exhaust aftertreatment systems market and a strong record in the generator sector, Eminox has the capacity to supply emissions systems for power generation of up to 2 MW. It works closely with both retrofit customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and, was first to market with accredited emissions control solutions for on-road applications and NRMM such as piling rigs.
