MINNEAPOLIS — 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 6 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 800 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% 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.

As with all Rental Power units from Cummins Power Generation, the new 800 kW is a complete pre–integrated power system designed to work in harmony. All parts of the system (generator set and controls) are designed and manufactured by Cummins Power Generation and factory–tested before shipping. “Our products are designed to work together and backed by Cummins Power Generation’s distributor network service and support, which gives our customers peace of mind,” Fetting said. “Service and support is available from our 24/7 distributor service network by calling 1–877–769–7669”.
