Cummins has introduced a ‘lean-burn’ line of gas generators that run on low numbered methane fuels and produce lower emissions. The QSV91 series is designed for remote locations and is well suited for prime power, peaking or combined heat and power (CHP) applications as well as continuous operation in island mode and for standby power.
The series is the first from Cummins with a 2MWe option along with 1540 kWe and 1750 kWe models.
The gensets are capable of running on low methane number fuels, down to 43MN, which makes them ideal for remote locations where grid power is unavailable or unreliable.
The QSV91 has mono-nitrogen oxides emission ratings as low as 250 mg/Nm3 and can run on biogases from landfill, digester and sewage sites.
The new line-up has black-start capabilities, the process of restoring a power station to operation without relying on the external electric power transmission network, thus making it a flexible option for areas without an external source of electricity.
