Himoinsa, which continues to develop its complete range of new lighting towers, has just brought to market the HCOMPACT+, a new mobile lighting tower distinguished by its robust and durable heavy-duty polyethylene canopy, LED technology, connectivity and maximum efficiency. An ideal product for the construction and mining industries, for example, where compact, robust and easily transportable equipment is a must.

The new design features a remote cooling system which, among numerous other benefits, guarantees sound emissions as low as 53 dB(A) at 7 metres, as well as increased durability and residual value. “We have worked hard to develop a design that isolates the engine area from the rest of the unit, creating an independent space, well away from the air flows, thereby reducing the intake of dust, water and other substances, and ensuring that the engine, the filters and indeed all the other components can have a longer service life”, explains Miguel Angel Ruiz, Global Engineering & Development Head at Himoinsa.

In terms of mobility and transport, the HCOMPACT+ is a portable and compact unit with approved wheels and a manual levelling system to ensure it remains stable on any surface. To make it easier to deploy the towers in off-road mining environments, several units can be transported in line.

The new model’s hot-dip galvanised chassis protects the unit from rust, while forklift pockets on all four sides protect it from transport damage. Its heavy-duty polyethylene canopy not only guarantees high levels of durability, but is in itself a robust and hard-wearing component that maximizes the unit’s residual value.

To ensure maximum safety during transport and operation, the HCOMPACT+ features an Automatic Mast Operating Safety System (AMOSS), which prevents the unit from being transported unless the mast is lowered, thereby prioritising people’s safety in all operating situations. The design also includes internal locks to prevent possible theft.

As far as environmental protection is concerned, the HCOMPACT+ is equipped with a retention tray (110% waterproof) to prevent any leakage or spillage of liquids.

With a lumen output of 6,400 m2 at an average of 20 lux , the HCOMPACT+ is fitted with 4 x 350W LED lamps (50X50 SMD Chip Technology). Its hydraulically raised telescopic mast reaches a height of 8.3 metres and can rotate through 360°, thus guaranteeing optimum light coverage.

In terms of transportability, up to 12 units can be transported on a 13-metre trailer or 10 in a 40-foot container. Its compact design features large openings for easy maintenance and a wide hinged door and removable ventilation grilles for easy cleaning. 

The new lighting tower incorporates a Yanmar Stage V 

The HCOMPACT+ incorporates a Yanmar 2TNV70 two-cylinder engine with optimised fuel consumption of less than 0.55 l/h, which makes it one of the most competitive products on the market in terms of consumption. It features a large capacity tank with a running time of 400 h and generous 600-hour service intervals, competitive advantages of an engine that has been designed by Yanmar, the parent company of Himoinsa, whose product developments are led by a multidisciplinary team of engineers, designers and technical experts who work to ensure that the company’s products are as efficient and competitive as possible.
