Penske Power Systems today confirmed a new partnership in the Pacific region with global energy storage solutions provider Qinous.
Effective from 16 August, the arrangement will see Penske Power Solutions bring the Qinous brand to the Australian market.
Using Microgrid Energy Management Systems, Qinous integrates renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, with traditional fossil fuel power generation and designs plug and play solutions for on- and off-grid applications.
The German company was founded in 2013.
Penske Power Systems General Manager Off-Highway, Matthew Smith said it was an exciting opportunity to bring Qinous to markets in Australia and the Pacific region.
"Qinous comes with a wealth of experience in on- and off-grid applications that would benefit our customers greatly," he said.
Penske Power Systems will represent the Q Compact series (rated up to 200 kVA power output and 355 kWh storage capacity), the Q Medium series (rated at 500 kVA and 837 kWh), and the Q Large series (rated up to 1,500 kVA and 2,344 kWh).
"The Qinous product range is perfectly complemented by Rolls Royce Power Systems' MTU portfolio, which Penske Power Systems also represents," said Steve Turton, Penske Power Systems Energy Solutions Business Manager.
"And as an investor in Qinous, Rolls Royce Power Systems is actively working to provide cleaner solutions for customers seeking robust systems," he said.
Penske Power Systems will reportedly use its branch network to provide project development support, and sales, parts, and service functions for the Qinous product range, in order to facilitate customer support across the entire Australian and Pacific region.
