Kubota BUEE Debuts Micro-Hybrid System at Bauma 2019
Kubota BUEE (Business Unit Engine Europe) brought innovation to Bauma 2019 in Munich, where it featured a prototype of its latest Micro-Hybrid system. It forms part of the largest and most comprehensive range of engines Kubota has ever displayed at a major construction trade show.
Kubota believes equipment manufacturers will progressively become less reliant upon any single power source, and that the engines themselves will need to further push the boundaries in areas of fuel efficiency, power density and adaptability. As a result, drawing upon its vast proven experience, Kubota is confident that the Micro-Hybrid system will offer greater opportunities for equipment manufacturers to exploit advances in product design flexibility, optimization and efficiencies derived from “downsizing,” while maintaining the overall machine performance and productivity.
Mother Nature spared no section of the country in 2018. The year’s biggest blackouts left customers not only in the dark, but often in extreme heat or bone-chilling cold. Below is a glimpse into some of the largest power outages of the year.
1.) Back-to-back Nor’Easters.
Thousands of East Coast residents spent days — and some more than a week — in the dark after two back-to-back winter storms pummeled the region in early March, causing massive outages. New Jersey was among the hardest hit states, enduring 600 broken poles and 1,700 spans of wire that required replacement. The widespread system damage left utility companies unprepared for the second squall just days later, which struck while tens of thousands of residents remained in the dark from the previous “bomb cyclone.” More than 1 million customers in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut were left without electricity after the second storm, with full restoration taking just over a week.
2.) Hurricane Michael.
Dubbed a “history-making monster” by a Florida newspaper, the Oct. 10 storm left approximately 2.5 million electricity customers across the Southeast without power. Making landfall as a Category 4 hurricane with winds blasting at over 150 mph, Michael also left behind outages in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. More than 35,000 utility workers from at least 27 states and Canada rallied together to restore power as quickly as possible.
