Cummins introduces its QSG12 diesel genset3 January 2019
Cummins, which showcased its new QSG12 50Hz diesel generator series at the MATELEC exhibition in Madrid in November, says that the generator series “offers optimum performance, reliability and versatility for stationary standby and prime power applications.” With an improved design and an advanced combustion system, this series offers “more power for less space, by delivering a much higher power density and a more reliable power solution.”
Available from 360-450kVA at 50Hz, the new C400D5 and C450D5 genset models are powered by a Cummins 4 cycle, inline, 6-cylinder dual speed engine. The heavy duty engine is designed to respond to low emissions requirements and is said to deliver fast response to load changes, while using less fuel. In particular, an XPI fuel system is embedded on the engine across all new models for greater fuel efficiency.
This series features a low noise level – down to 67Db(A) at 75% load – and has been designed for a wide variety of applications in different markets such as hospitals, manufacturing, commercial and industrial facilities that can benefit from the reduced noise level.
All the new models can run in grid parallel mode. Additional features offered include extended service intervals of 500 hrs and unaided cold start capability at -12°C.
“This product series includes many design and performance improvements and it is a definitive step forward for us. In addition to the robust performance and fuel efficiency offering, Cummins customers can depend on comprehensive warranty and worldwide distributor network ... [it is] a perfect fit for global standby and prime power applications” said Ignacio González, executive director of Power Systems Greater Europe.
