New 800 Kw Rental Power Unit From Cummins Power Generation Offers Better Fuel Efficiency and a Smaller Footprint
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- A new 800 kW trailer-mounted diesel generator set from Cummins Power Generation provides a cleaner, quieter and compact system configured especially for customers seeking mobile power.
"Our new 800 kW Rental Power unit features the workhorse Cummins QSK23-G7 engine that has proven itself across a wide range of applications," according to Larry Fetting, North America general manager, Cummins Power Generation Rental Business. "The 800 kW mobile generator set offers larger fuel capacity; it can run at full load six to 18 hours longer than other generator sets available in today's market.
"Fuel savings is on everyone's mind," Fetting added. "This unit provides a product to address loads between 500 kW to 1000 kW in a very cost-effective manner. Some customers will pay for the unit multiple times over a year in fuel savings."
Other features of the new system include higher fuel storage safety with a 110 percent fluid containment system and improved emissions, with the new 800 kW meeting Tier 2 emissions requirements. A robust cooling system also allows the unit to operate in temperatures up to 122 degrees F (50 degrees C).
The 800 kW Rental Power unit also has a smaller footprint at a mere 30 feet long. The smaller container offers greater flexibility in moving and locating units at work sites or office buildings where space is limited. The container is also insulated with sound attenuation to keep down noise levels.
