Cummins has introduced the new C450 D5, as part of its QSG12 series diesel gensets for the commercial and industrial markets, at Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2018.

According to the genset manufacturer, this latest product offers more power for less space by delivering a much higher power density and a more reliable power solution.

“Cummins launched a virtual reality experience at MEE 2018, which allowed users to step inside a generator plant room and connect a complete power system,” said Alok Joshi, Director, Africa and Middle East, Cummins Power Generation. “The exhibition was a perfect platform for Cummins to debut its latest innovations for the power-generation sector.

“The new C450 D5, as part of its QSG12 series diesel gensets is available from 400 kVA to 450 kVA, powered by a Cummins four-cycle, inline, six-cylinder dual-speed diesel engine offering more robust performance using less fuel. Additional features include extended service intervals of 500 hours, a lower fuel consumption, and unaided cold-start capability at 12°C.”

Also on display was the C1540 N5CC, the newest addition to the QSK60 gas-engine portfolio. According to Joshi this will offer new customer options that make it a perfect fit for both independent power producers and combined heat and power applications.

The Cummins range

The new 9.5 litre G-Drive Coolpac series was also showcased in the newly-released Cummins black colour. The 6LTAA9.5-G1 G-Drive Coolpac model, available at 350 kVA, offers higher efficiency and dependability. With a 24-valve and a larger-flow injector design, this new model delivers one of the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class.

Cummins also displayed its Digital Master Control 8000, a fully-automatic, distributed logic controller for remote applications, making it easier for users to integrate and adapt their varying power needs. The new system can control diverse power sources such as solar, genset, and wind. With available remote access and monitoring, users can access the control system securely, and view up to 90 days of data logging anytime, anywhere.
