A new class of emergency response equipment has just been introduced by Hydro Innovations. Called the Lampo, from Euromacchine, the units are trailer-mounted multi-purpose machines designed to simplify the deployment of equipment for municipalities, emergency services and contractors.
The aim of the Lampo is to enable owners to deploy multiple pieces of machinery, using only one vehicle.
At the heart of the unit is a diesel driven generator complete with variable frequency drive (VFD), which powers a lighting tower and a Gorman-Rupp pump unit. The units also come standard with an air compressor, discharge hose reel and suction hoses.
The “heart” of the unit (generator/ VFD/ lighting system) is manufactured by quality equipment manufacturer Euromacchine in Italy, and housed in an acoustically rated enclosure. It is then mounted on an Australian built trailer and fitted with a self-priming Gorman-Rupp trash pump.
The cleverly designed unit can light up a work area while operators set up the pump or operate numerous electric tools the generator can drive. The VFD allows for soft starting electrical equipment, including the pump, and can vary the speeds of these machines to suit the duty at hand. While all this is happening, the compressor can be driving air nibblers, air operated nail guns, wrenches or tyre inflators.
The units are available in seven sizes. The smallest unit has a 11kVa generator, 5.5kW VFD, 61,400 lumen lighting system, 6 litre compressor and Gorman-Rupp T2A60-B self-priming pump. The largest unit has a 100kVa generator, 55kW VFD, 61,400 lumen lighting system, 24 litre compressor and Gorman-Rupp T8A60S-B self-priming pump.
Units will come with a standard specification, inclusive of a six metre high lighting tower and robust tool box, but they are also able to be custom configured to suit individual needs/applications, including different size and type of pumps, higher powered lighting, different size compressors, and different sorts of optional equipment.
