KINOLT to join Rolls-Royce Power Systems

3i Group plc (“3i”) and co-investors have agreed the sale of KINOLT to Rolls-Royce, a global leader in power and propulsion systems.

KINOLT, headquartered in Belgium, designs, manufactures and maintains dynamic uninterruptable power supply (“Dynamic UPS”) systems for customers across the globe through its network of 13 locations. Dynamic UPS systems are highly relevant to customers operating in an environment where a power outage would have severe consequences, including data centres, hospitals, airports, other critical infrastructure and critical manufacturing facilities.

KINOLT has achieved double-digit annual sales growth since 3i invested in 2015, underpinned by attractive market fundamentals and the growth of the international sales network. Over the past five years, KINOLT has cemented its position as a technological leader in the growth market for Dynamic UPS systems. 3i has worked closely together with the KINOLT management team to significantly expand KINOLT’s international footprint and have continued to invest in product innovation.

Rolls-Royce is a strong strategic partner to help drive the next growth phase of KINOLT, bringing unique expertise and a global sales network. The KINOLT product portfolio is highly complementary to the current offering of Rolls-Royce and fits well within the strategy of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, which is focused on becoming a provider of integrated solutions.

The transaction is subject to customary antitrust approvals. Closing is expected in the next months.

Meet KINOLT at the African Airport Summit in Accra, Ghana

KINOLT will once again be present at the African Airport Summit on the 19-20th February in Accra, Ghana. Supporting the rising air transportation needs in Africa, where nearly 100 airport projects are expected to be developed in upcoming years.

The International Civil Aviation Organisation (which issues Standards and Recommended Practices/Policies in support of the civil aviation sector) has defined the secondary/backup power that airports must install to support their critical systems including the maximum switchover time between primary and secondary power supplies.

In CAT II or CAT III conditions or Runway Visual Ranges below 800 metres, the maximum switchover time for most systems is one second. Key systems, such as Instrument Landing, require a completely no-break secondary power source ensuring an uninterruptible secondary power supply. The KINOLT KS airport design fulfils these requirements and the need for a seamless transfer from the utility power supply to the KS secondary power supply, as well as a seamless restoration of service following a transfer. The KINOLT KS offers you a secondary power supply for as long as you require (until the primary power supply is restored) without limitation of operating hours.

When a power outage is not an option, TRUSTED POWER is the foundation on which all critical airport systems should operate, and it is where your partnership with KINOLT begins.

Please come along and meet Bernard Hanssens, our Managing Director, Middle-East and Africa. He will be pleased to share our success stories and talk through future opportunities.

Euro-Diesel is now KINOLT !

On June 20 we officially launched our new company name KINOLT.
A milestone moment for our company!

While our company has grown rapidly over the last thirty years, our image and the overall way we portrayed ourselves to the outside world, has not changed with us. We felt that the impression our customers were getting from our company no longer reflected our true and unique strength.

Therefore we decided to update and upgrade our company image and go for a total rebranding effort that included a new name: KINOLT. Derived from the words KINetic (energy) and vOLT our new name is based on the foundation of our core business: Dynamic UPS.

The name KINOLT will give new meaning to our company and enables us to continue on our path of growth that started in 1989 when a team of young and ambitious engineers specialising in critical power systems founded Euro-Diesel.

Our new name is accompanied by a short but very firm promise to you and to your customers: TRUSTED POWER. Simply because it is our business to keep your business up and running.

No matter what happens and no matter where you are!
