A new 1000 kW Rental Power unit from Cummins Power Generation (CPG) provides temporary power for construction and emergency situations. Certified to meet EPA Tier 2 emission standards, the new system’s enhanced performance features, says CPG, include low emissions, increased running time, selectable voltages and easy operator access for maintainability. The 1000kW system, contained in a 30-foot trailer, features a model that allows quick voltage changes from 208 VAC to 480 VAC. A separate 600 VAC model is also available. Running time at 75 percent load is 30 hours. The new system also incorporates “110 percent fluid containment” to prevent job site contamination from fuel leaks or spills. The unit is designed to operate in ambient temperatures to 113 F and has a sound level, according to the manufacturer, of 75 dB(A) measured at 23 feet.
