US-based Chicago Pneumatic has provided temporary power for the development of a new luxury residential development in Dubai.

The firm said it had supplied 14 stationary diesel gensets for the construction of the development located on the Dubai Water Canal, adding that the order includes six of its CPSG300 units, five CPSG200 units, one CPSG105 unit and two CPSG60 units.

As part of the order, the company installed a control panel on all of the gensets to enable remote operation. To facilitate faster positioning of the generators on- and off-site, the larger units were equipped with a lifting beam.

The gensets feature large removable 45-degree doors for maintenance purposes, dual-position (top and front) air outlets and a spillage-free frame design, Chicago Pneumatic said.

Additional features include different levels of noise isolation, a lockable fuel filling cap, a terminal board that is suitable for connection with or without clamps, and easy fuel tank cleaning access to prevent damage from contaminants.

Sushil Kumar, divisional manager at Chicago Pneumatic distributor German-Gulf Enterprises Ltd, which secured the order, said: “We put forward CPSG generators in response to the tender from the project contractor, as they provide excellent durability and are built to withstand tough worksite conditions while operating at high working temperatures. These features were deemed essential by the contractor as the project needed a power supply capable of performing continuously over a long period of time.”

And Ziaur Rahman, German-Gulf Enterprises assistant sales manager, added: “Our proposal highlighted other compelling features of the CPSG such as its corrosion-resistant canopy and rugged base that offers extra impact protection for sensitive areas of the unit.

“In addition, we were able to share technical data from recent CPSG installations in Saudi Arabia which combined to persuade our customer that the generators were the right fit for the project.”
