Cummins unveils quiet gensets for lightweight market

Fri, 12/06/2013 - 12:12 -- Ruth Williams
The Cummins QuietConnect

Cummins has brought out a range of generator sets suitable for home or business applications that run on both liquid propane and natural gas. The QuietConnect has power output ratings from 22kW to 60kW.

These are Cummins first gensets for the light commercial or residential markets. Although based on previous Cummins products, the emphasis was on making the gensets extremely quiet.

The QuietConnect operates very quietly thanks to advanced sound attenuation design and acoustical testing. This was done by eliminating external noises and pinpointing where in a generator noise was made so engineers could design quieter products.

The Connect Series generators are powered by the QSJ2.4 engine, a four-cycle, spark-ignited engine has a closed-loop electronic fuel system and have been designed and tested to perform under extreme temperatures and high altitude applications.

Ivo Mönnink has joined Hitec to expand the company in new markets

Hitec Power Protection has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer called Ivo Mönnink to bring Hitec into new markets and expand the company’s global presence.

Hitec has close to 1700 UPS units installed worldwide including the Diesel Rotary UPS System, called the Hitec QPS, which is built to reduce plant space with the highest power density per square meter in the industry. 

Mönnink has been brought in to continue this technology leadership. "Hitec doesn't just manufacture and sell dynamic uninterruptible power supplies -- they invented them. For more than 50 years, the company has produced the market's most advanced solutions for keeping mission-critical infrastructures reliable and running at peak efficiency," said Mönnink.

Prior to Hitec, Mönnink worked at Netherlands-based FERM B.V, a power equipment provider; he was Europe Managing Director at Chicago-based Pregis Hexacomb, a packaging company. He also brings commercial, branding and communications expertise to Hitec from roles at Nike and Unilever.

Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport

Cummins has supplied two standalone generators to Sri Lanka’s Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport to cover power outages at the growing airport.

The project contractor, China Harbour Engineering Company, installed two 939kVA Cummins Power Generation C1000 D5 generator sets at the country's newest airport.

Noise reduction was an essential consideration because the generators had to be situated in the cargo unit within the airport. The generators were soundproofed to 70 decibels at one metre to manage the noise levels.

Cummins to target Europe rental market with launch of new gensets

Tue, 01/22/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

Cummins is targeting the European rental market with the launch of four generator sets in the 150 to 300 kVA range.


According to International Rental News, the rental-specific sets, which have been created by a new Cummins design team led by former A-Plant power rentals director Richard Mellard, are sized at 150, 200, 250 and 300 kVA, with the smaller two using Cummins QSB7 engine and the two larger models equipped with the QSL9 power unit

The sets will be made available in markets including Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Australia. The reports said Cummins would further expand their rental range, with launches of sub-150 kVA units by the end of 2013 or the start of 2014, and larger units following in 2014/15.

The gensets come equipped with Cummins’ PowerCommand controllers, although Cummins plans to offer third-party controllers for rental companies who want commonality across their fleets. The 150 kVA unit can be used in temperatures up to 500C without any derating and the 200/250/300 sets up to 400C with no derating.
