Bien que ne faisant pas directement partie de l’aéronautique à proprement parler, la société EURO-DIESEL entretient néanmoins des liens étroits avec le secteur. Le plus évident est probablement le rôle essentiel joué par son produit phare auprès d’un de ses clients les plus importants: les aéroports & tours de contrôle du trafic aérien. Le très haut degré de technicité de ce produit le rend également comparable aux technologies de l’aéronautique. Nous avons rencontré Philippe Gillain, administrateur délégué d’EURO-DIESEL, qui nous explique les spécificités de cette entreprise liégeoise, et les profils qui contribuent à sa réussite.
EURO-DIESEL (UK) Ltd exhibited at Data Centre World 2016 at the London Excel on the 12-13 April. A major event in the Data Centre calendar - this year’s show was bigger and better than ever with over 250 exhibiting companies. With strong footfall to the EURO-DIESEL stand, the team were kept busy meeting new and existing contacts from across the industry.[+]
The first of eight 2500 kVA NO-BREAK KS®7e units’ arrived to its final destination in Singapore.
In early March, our Middle Eastern team participated in the Middle East Electricity exhibition which was held in Dubai. It was a great opportunity to present the many projects we have carried out in the region covering datacentres, airports and municipality applications and to share the impressive references EURO-DIESEL has received for these projects.

The NO-BREAK KS® is such a simple concept that one might think of it as a conventional generator-set. It is made up of a Diesel Engine separated/coupled to a Stato-Alternator, via an Electromagnetic Clutch. The Stato-Alternator is the combination of the Kinetic Energy Accumulator and a Synchronous Machine.
The NO-BREAK KS® also includes a control panel and a choke/power panel.
Description of the Stato- Alternator
The heart of the NO-BREAK KS® is the kinetic energy accumulator; a clever but simple system to store and retrieve kinetic energy.
How does it work? - Energy storage
In conditioning mode, the drive shaft is spinning at 1800rpm, and the AC winding is powered to generate a rotating magnetic field which turns the drum to the maximum speed of 3000 rpm.
How does it work? -Energy retrieval
When a utility outage occures at the input of the system, the DC winding of the inner rotor is energized and the outer drum is electrically coupled to the inner rotor by an induced field. The kinetic energy of the drum then "drives" the inner rotor via this induced field. This energy transfer is regulated by accurately controlling the current injected into the DC winding ALWAYS maintaining the output frequency to 60Hz.
