We develop customized solutions to meet your energy needs, whether they are for continuous, peaking, combined heat and power or a waste–to–energy application. We work with you to develop power plants that combine our centralized "factory" knowledge with our distributors' local knowledge and proximity. Serving mainly the gas–fired, mid–power, distributed generation market in the 2 MW to 20 MW range, our solutions include:

  • System design — Detailed system design is a first step toward successfully implementing a power system.
  • Project management — Comprehensive and thorough
  • Turnkey power plant development
  • Financing
  • Maintenance contracts
  • Operations management

We have designed and installed power plants throughout the world, including:

  • Energy–saving cogeneration systems
  • Gas or diesel–fueled prime power systems
  • On–site peaking plants

  • PDF icon Jaguar Mine – Australia (202kb)

    With diesel fuel costs soaring, Jabiru Metals—an emerging Australian base metals company—knew it had to take advantage of the relatively low cost of natural gas and use gas-powered generator sets for its prime power requirements. The power station comprises four Cummins Power Generation QSV91 natural gas generator sets, each capable of producing 1.75 MW.

  • PDF icon Municipal Waste Treatment Plant – Canary Islands (537kb)

    The Canary Islands Salto del Negro municipal waste treatment plant turned to Cummins Power Generation for a cogeneration (combined heat and power) solution that processes garbage and sewage collected from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, a city of 380,000, and several surrounding towns and villages. The waste is processed to produce methane gas, which is then used to fuel generators that produce both electricity and heat.

  • PDF icon Viridor Waste Management – Scotland (638kb)

    In addition to disposing of thousands of tons of waste daily from its 193–acre site east of Edinburgh, Scotland, Viridor Waste Management uses two low–Btu gas generator sets from Cummins Power Generation to produce 3.5 MW of electricity from the methane created by decaying rubbish.

  • PDF icon American Honda Headquarters – United States (707kb)

    Based on projections, it is estimated that American Honda will save more than 30% in on-campus energy expenditures each year using a cogeneration (combined heat and power) system from Cummins Power Generation.

  • PDF icon Chicago Museum of Science and Industry – United States (280kb)

    The installation of a 1.75 MW cogeneration (combined heat and power) system from Cummins Power Generation at the world–famous Chicago Museum of Science and Industry provides up to 80 percent of the museum’s heat, hot water and electricity.

  • PDF icon De Breuck Greenhouses – Belgium (164kb)

    Geert De Breuck produces about 1,650 metric tons (3.64 million pounds) of tomatoes annually with the help of a cogeneration (combined heat and power) system designed by Cummins Power Generation that generates electricity for on-site use and for sale to the power grid, while simultaneously producing heat and carbon dioxide for plant growth.

  • PDF icon Hydro Sherbrooke – Canada (200kb)

    Cummins Power Generation helps Quebec’s Hydro Sherbrooke revitalize the utility’s peak–shaving program for its customers with a closed–transition transfer switch that automates power transfers without manual intervention or disruptions.

  • PDF icon Jinqiao Sports Center – China (188kb)

    Visitors to Shanghai’s Jinqiao Sports Center can work out in comfort, thanks to a cogeneration (combined heat and power) system from Cummins Power Generation. The cogeneration system uses natural gas to power an on-site electric generator set that supplies electricity to the facility, while the waste heat from the engine is used to make hot water and heat the swimming pool and building.

  • PDF icon Western Milling – United States (292kb)

    With rates soaring for both electricity and natural gas in Southern California, Western Milling, a large animal feed supplier, decided it needed to do something to reduce its energy costs. Cummins Cal Pacific, the local distributor for Cummins Power Generation, analyzed Western Milling’s need for more economical energy and recommended a cogeneration (combined heat and power) running on natural gas.
