A-Plant places £2m orders for SDMO, Cummins gensets

Wed, 09/03/2014 - 11:29 -- Editor

UK rental firm A-Plant has boosted its fleet of power generation equipment by placing orders worth almost £2m ($3.3m) for gensets manufactured by SDMO and Cummins.

The SDMO order totals 158 diesel gensets, comprising 10kVA, 15kVA, 20kVA, 30kVA, 45kVA and 60kVA models and the investment is in the region of £1.4m.

Within the order are 36 of SDMO’s brand new Diesel 10000 E Silence gensets, the first from the production line and the first to be delivered into the UK from SDMO’s manufacturing plant in Brest, France.

The Diesel 10000 E Silence is a 10kVA portable genset, supplying portable power for use on construction sites, at events and for sectors such as the rail industry. Powered by a Kohler air-cooled industrial engine, it has a soundproof enclosure which ensures ultra-low noise during operation. It has acoustic pressure level of 81dB(A) at 1m and 69dB(A) at 7m and is also fully bunded.

A-Plant has also placed an order totalling almost £450,000 with Cummins for 27 gensets, the bulk of which are for the new Cummins 100kVA unit, the C100D2R.

This latest addition to A-Plant’s rental fleet is ideal for use at construction sites, events, telecommunications and industrial applications and provides a prime rating of 100kVA at 50Hz with a ultra-low noise rating of 66.7dB(A) at seven metres.

MTU Onsite Energy

MTU Onsite Energy (MTU) has received certification for its series 4000 gas gensets to be compliant with Germany's medium-voltage directive.

The certification issued by Germany’s Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry enables the gas generators to feed generated power into the public grid.

The series 4000 has a power output from 750kW to 2,600kW. According to MTU, the gensets achieve up to 44.3% electrical efficiency.

“Being armed with this certificate puts us in a very strong position on the market for gas gensets,” said Jörg Mielke, head of sales in Germany at MTU. MTU modified the gensets to meet the certification requirements.

Germany’s Renewable Energy Act and the Combined Heat and Power Act has led to an explosion in distributed power generation. MTU aims to provide static and dynamic grid support with the supply of reactive power or automatic reduction output as well as with its combined heat and power and biogas plants.

Cummins supplies natural gas genset to ARUP

ARUP Salt Lake City

Cummins Power Generation has delivered natural gas generator sets to Associated Regional and University Pathologists (ARUP) Laboratories near Salt Lake City, US.

The standby power solution is to provide emergency power for critical research processes at the laboratory without risk of fuel disruption by using natural gas, according to Cummins.

Medical tester ARUP ordered three 1MW lean-burn natural gas gensets that feature unit-mounted power command controls and paralleling capability. The system accepts load within 30 seconds of start-up.

According to Cummins, ARUP chose a natural gas-fueled genset, because diesel needs replenishment by deliveries that might not be able to get through in extreme eventualities. Long-term environmental concerns about onsite diesel storage have played a role, too.

The gensets are now ready for operation in case of emergencies. In the meantime, the system runs two hours each month for testing.

The 300,000 sq. ft. laboratory processes specimens of blood, body fluid and tissue biopsies. It operates 24/7, seven days a week.

Regional distributor Cummins Rocky Mountains delivered the systems. The distributor also provided ancillary equipment and installed a digital master controller.

Cummins gensets receive EPA Tier 4 Final certification

US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has given Cummins’s new line of diesel backup power gensets a Tier 4 Final certification.

EPA approved the complete line of high-horsepower gensets, ranging from 680kW to 2750kW. The generators are mainly used for backup power in critical power applications such as hospitals and data centres. The line is also designed for standby power applications where air quality is impaired and for emergency use.

Cummins said it is the first manufacturer receiving a Tier 4 Final certification. “We are proud to be the first company to be awarded Tier 4 Final certification for our generators,” said Dennis Heathfield, executive director at Cummins.

The Tier 4 Final generators achieve a 99% reduction in particulate matter emissions in comparison to Tier 2 products. “By achieving this emission reduction, we are providing customers with more fuel-efficient and cleaner generators,” added Heathfield.

EPA adopted Tier 4 emission standards in 2004 for new off-road diesel engines in order to reduce hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, particulate matter and nitrogen oxide. Tier 4 Final standards require a reduction to near-zero levels.

Generac reveals noise reduced and low cost per kW standby generator

Generac genset

Generac has launched a low cost per kW protection standby 22kW generator.

The Guardian genset series comes with the company’s purpose-built OHVI engine and controller, including a dual-line tri-lingual LCD display.

The genset is engineered for standby power applications and includes a feature to ensure reliable operation to power sensitive electronics and appliances, according to the company. The engine runs at 1800rpm, which makes it quieter, less fuel consuming and extends therefore the service life of engine and alternator.

“Previously, if a homeowner needed a generator with a little more ‘oomph’ than they could get from a 20kW home standby, they’d have to invest several thousand dollars more for a 22kW liquid-cooled generator,” said Jake Thomas, senior product manager at Generac. The 22kW air-cooled home standby should set a new price and performance benchmark claimed the company. The recommended retail price of the new series is $4,699. “Our new 22kW Guardian Series generator provides that extra power for only a few hundred dollars more. That’s a tremendous value for our customers,” added Thomas.

The genset is compatible with a remote monitoring system that allows US and Canadian homeowners to monitor the status of their power system via electronical devices.
