TST participated in the presentation of the Acciona sailing boat – a totally ecological craft – which took place in the Olympic Port of Barcelona on 26 October. On this occasion, TST supplied a portable generator, as well as the auxiliary equipment necessary for guaranteeing an optimum power supply.

For the event held to promote the "Acciona" IMOCA Open 60 sailing boat – which will be participating in the Vendée Globe 2012 (the non-stop race around the world without external assistance) – featuring a motor integrating a hydrogen fuel cell system, TST supplied a XXL-250 KVA generator, equipped with a motor and an oversized alternator for dealing with unexpected overloads, and a special silencer system, making it one of the quietest on the market.

In addition, TST installed four Siemens switchboards of varying capacity for distributing electricity, via cabling, to all the electrical equipment used at the event, including emergency lighting and portable air conditioning units. In total, around 15 pieces of rented equipment contributed to the success of the IMOCA Open 60 sailing boat presentation at the Olympic Port.

The organizers put their trust yet again in the more than 35 years of experience of TST as a large event supplier, in addition to the company's safety record and the reliability of its technicians.
