Setting the standard

Aggreko is proud to be the first UK hire company to design and manufacture our own Stage V generators. Developed to a high specification, we have the largest fleet available nationwide, with models ranging from 30kVA – 1200kVA.

Robust and fuel efficient, our low noise generators can deliver on your temporary power needs without sacrificing performance. Not simply following the standard but setting it.

What is Stage V?

Introduced by the EU, Stage V (Regulation 2016/1628) is an emissions standard for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) with spark/compression ignition engines. It aims to reduce emitted particulate matter and reduce harmful substances, and is an evolution of previous standards and requires controls, such as diesel particulate filters, to be applied to new NRMM.

Setting a high bar in ultra-low emission zones

As the rest of the UK starts to follow London’s lead in creating low and ultra-low emission zones, it’s critical that Stage V temporary hire power solutions are readily available.

To meet this urgent need, we started designing and manufacturing our own Stage V generators. Our Stage V generators deliver low-emission energy generation through improved technology with the following features across the range:

  • 1. Installation of a Diesel Particulate Filter reduces fine diesel emissions
  • 2. Selective catalytic reduction systems reduce NOx emissions
  • 3. Added injection technology further neutralises harmful particulates
  • 4. Diesel Oxidation Catalysts reduce CO2 emissions through oxidization
  • 5. Low noise, with variable speed fans drastically reducing sound at lower loads and in lighter ambient conditions to allow for use in urban areas
  • 6. Arc Flash detection and ingress protection to give better defence of the components against the environment
  • 7. Internal Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)/Adblue tank matched to internal fuel capacityto ensure that DEF only requires filling at the same frequency as fuel tank refills
  • 8. Two external DEF/AdBlue tank options to extend on-site refill intervals, supply multiple generators and reduce the required site installation footprint

Helping you meet your emissions targets

When it comes to measuring your emissions, the whole fleet across an entire project must be monitored. Our remote monitoring allows you to easily optimise, control and manage your on-hire fleet.

Stage V generator FAQS

Equipment such as stationary machines, automobiles, and watercraft are exempt from Stage V regulations.It is, however, worth noting that such equipment will still need to observe other regulations. 

Stage V compliance refers to the mandatory adherence to the EU’s Stage V regulation, aimed at reducing emissions in non-road mobile machinery with spark or compression engines. It is the toughest regulation of its type. Stage V regulations are intended to reduce the particulate matter emitted by equipment used in a variety of sectors, including construction, manufacturing, agriculture, and food and beverage. 

Stage V represents a significant step up in the regulation of non-road mobile machinery, with tighter controls on emissions from non-road mobile machinery. For example, Stage V restricts carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides and limits the permitted emissions of particulate matter.

By setting limits on emissions from non-road mobile machinery, Stage V will reduce the overall carbon footprint of projects, thereby reducing air pollution and addressing climate change.
