Protecting the Environment and Saving Money: POWER-HybridWhenever a sewage pipe is rehabilitated using an Alphaliner, you need stable power supply for the specialized equipment. “Running a big power generator, just to supply a single vehicle with electricity during the early morning hours, is simply not efficient,” stated Philipp Martin, RELINEEUROPE’s Sales Director Europe. For this reason, RELINEEUROPE now offers its power-hybrid technology across the entire product portfolio.
Generally, modern UV systems come equipped with a power generator ranging between 30-60 KVA electrical output. Yet, this total power capacity is only needed during the actual UV curing process, which only takes place during a few hours of the day. For the remainder of time, a large part of this power is not utilized. RELINEEUROPE will change this permanently, giving their customers a choice between investing in a new UV curing system with a conventional power supply or the new power-hybrid solution.
The Advantages of this Technology at a Glance
- Cost reduction by lowering diesel consumption by up to 6,000 liters p.a.
- Larger service intervals for the generator due to fewer daily operating hours
- Longer service life and later investment in a new replacement generator
- Environmentally friendly and smaller carbon footprint
- Less noise pollution impacting both humans and nature
- Short amortization period
These convincing arguments are what drove the company to develop a sustainable solution to address these issues.
- Modular design with 5 – 20 KW battery capacity
- Automatic switch-over from generator to battery-powered operation
- Smart charging of the battery pack during the curing process
- Battery-powered operation also possible at low ambient temperatures
- Minimum of 3,500 charging cycles
„Our customers are very satisfied with these facts and the resulting benefits. Over the past 12 months, an increasing number of UV systems with power-hybrid technology have been ordered,” according to Martin.
Just recently, several UV systems using the power-hybrid technology were delivered to customers: For instance, a REE4000 Professional handed over to the rehabilitation company Umwelttechnik & Wasserbau from Frankfurt, or the REE2000 Professional delivered to KATEC Kanaltechnik from Jünkerath, Germany.

Smart control technology manages the charging of the battery pack - The generator can stay switched off for up to 1,300 operating hours, thereby saving approximately 6,000 liters of diesel fuel.
