Kohler Power Systems has introduced a 2500 kW generator with a V-16 engine that offers greater power density with a reduced footprint, compared with previous models.
The new model, 2500REOZDC, has a 60Hz standby rating, a 50C cooling system and heavy-duty air cleaner assembly and durable dual-bearing alternators.
The generator is approved for International Building Code (IBC) 2012 seismic certification, as well as meeting the NFPA 110 requirements of providing power in under ten seconds.
Adam Dykstra, staff engineer for Kohler Power Systems, explained the importance of earthquake proof power supply systems in areas prone to quakes: “It’s crucial for backup emergency power systems to start and remain operational. KOHLER generators have passed rigorous shake tests conducted at AC156-qualified labs led by a reputable third-party agency and approved by structural and professional engineers to guarantee their reliable performance.”
