Cummins Power Generation has launched a new lean-burn gas generator set product line.

Cummins says the new 50 Hz products, which extend the capabilities of the existing QSV91G generator range, “offer exceptional transient performance and improved fuel capability, allowing them to run on low methane number fuels and produce lower emissions”.

The new line marks the debut of a 2 MWe variant, alongside the improved 1,540 kWe and 1,750 kWe models.

Primary applications for the new models include prime, peaking and combined heat and power as well as continuous operation in island mode and standby power.

Cummins says the new models are “ideal for remote locations where grid power is unavailable, such as mining, oil or gas fields, or in regions of the world where grid power is either unreliable or inaccessible”.

The company adds that a major feature of the new line-up is black start capability – the ability to bring the generator set quickly into operation without relying on an external electricity source such as the grid. “Black start capability frees the generator set from grid dependency and allows its deployment anywhere there is a need,” says Cummins. “The new product line is also capable of running in high altitude and high ambient temperature environments with minimal derate.”
