Authorized distributor SETI Jordan, in cooperation with Cummins Middle East, supplied a standby power system, allowing critical patient care to continue uninterrupted.

The King Hussein Cancer Center in Amman, Jordan has doubled its capacity with the addition of an inpatient tower and outpatient building. Situated across the street from the existing center near the University of Jordan, the new facilities provide a technologically advanced, integrated space for patient care, research and education not only for Jordan’s capital city, but for the Middle East region.

The center first installed a Cummins power system in 2008, and again turned to Cummins and its authorized distributor SETI Jordan Ltd. for the expansion project. Supplied were 4 x Cummins C1675D5A diesel generator sets, 27 bypass transfer switches, a PowerCommand® Digital Master Control 200 and synchronization and distribution switchgear. The power system installation supervision and commissioning was performed by SETI Jordan.

The Cummins standby power system will provide seamless power in the event of an outage, allowing critical patient care to continue uninterrupted. 

Details of the center’s expansion are:

  • The 13-floor inpatient tower has 179 additional patient beds in single-occupancy rooms, expanded units for diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy and bone marrow transplantation and adult and pediatric specialty ICUs. 
  • The 10-floor outpatient building offers the first public cord bank in Jordan. In addition, the Khalid Shoman Educational Center and Auditorium includes a skills lab, seminar rooms and physician’s library, while the Cell Therapy and Applied Genomics Department elevates stem cell research capacity. Lastly, the Women’s Health Center and a pediatric ward offer dedicated spaces for women and children.

The customer once again chose Cummins due to the longstanding relationship with local distributor SETI Jordan and its ability to offer complete turnkey solutions, including supply, testing and commissioning in addition to aftersales and service capabilities. In addition, Cummins’ unique capabilities include meeting specific, customized project requirements and providing a complete power system solution from a single manufacturer – which we call The Power of One™.

Mechanical Design training brings Cummins distributor and dealer engineers to Daventry, UK

Following the first edition of a redesigned Cummins Application Engineering Training Program, Part 2 – Mechanical Design was delivered by the Sales Application Engineering team in Daventry, UK, from 27th to 30th November 2017. In total, 22 people from across Cummins European distributors and dealers attended the course.

The first edition of Part 1 – Product Selection, was delivered in May, at the Cummins Holland facilities in Dordrecht, Netherlands. The objective of Part 2 is primarily to focus on the mechanical considerations required for project design and implementation. Due to its technical nature, the course was targeted at engineers seeking to develop and improve their skills and knowledge in this field.

Unlike the previous Application Engineering Training Program, the new program introduced in 2017 divided the training into three standalone courses: Product Selection, Mechanical Design and Electrical Design. These trainings provide engineers from varied backgrounds with the necessary skills and tools to leverage sales and select and install Cummins products effectively. Each course includes a number of modules and are more focused on real case studies and practical examples.

Part 2 training consisted of the following modules, which included challenging calculations and class exercises:

  • Fuel Systems
  • Fuel Tanks Pipework
  • Cooling Systems
  • Remote Cooling & Heat Exchangers
  • Exhaust Systems
  • Noise Considerations
  • Mechanical Installations
  • Genset Mounting Considerations
  • Gas Considerations

The training team introduced a live power generation installation review, carried out at the Cummins Service Training School in Daventry, as well as a plant tour at Cummins Daventry Engine Plant.

The last day of the training is set aside for the exam. Attendees are given four hours to complete questions related to the work covered in the training, as well as calculating expected exhaust back pressures to cooling system restrictions. The training is challenging with an expected pass mark of 85%.

The team is now looking forward to delivering Part 3 – Electrical Design in Q2 2018, date and location to be confirmed.

Cummins expands QuietConnect Series with release of new generators

Cummins Inc. announces the new RS125 and RS150 in the QuietConnect Series, now ranging from 13 kW up to 150 kW to back up homes and small businesses of various sizes and power requirements. The 125 kW and 150 kW models will be available in early January 2018, just in time for the winter storm season. Every year during winter storm season, hundreds of thousands – sometimes millions – of people lose power, which, in many cases also means loss of heat.

“The release of RS125 and RS150 reinforces Cummins commitment to providing power that homes and small businesses can rely on when they need it most,” according to George Iarca, Territory Manager for the South Central Region at Cummins. “Our new generators are designed to power up seamlessly when the power goes down, providing home and business owners with a peace of mind that their families and businesses won’t be without lights and heat during the winter months or air conditioning during the summer months.”

The new generators run on natural gas and are built to weather everything from biting winter storms to high-powered hurricanes. Both models are designed to operate under extreme environmental conditions including cold weather well below 0°F and winds up to 180 miles per hour when equipped with the necessary accessories. The generator can also operate reliably in ambient temperatures up to 122°F, providing peace of mind to consumers worried about grid failure due to extreme heat.

Largest mixed-use development in Istanbul powered by Cummins in third phase

One of the newest icons of Istanbul has again turned to Cummins for a complete standby power system.

After providing the standby power in the first and second phases of the 42 Maslak building project, Cummins Turkey has now delivered the power for the third phase, in the form of 2 x Cummins C1675D5A generator sets together with master panel and fuel tank. Cummins Turkey also performed full mechanical installation and commissioning, along with providing technical support throughout the planning and implementation. Cummins’ product quality and performance was noted as a key factor for the continued partnership.

42 Maslak has become known as the largest and most comprehensive mixed-life center in Istanbul, set in a 250,000 m² area and consisting of four different concepts – residences, multi-offices, flat offices and a mall for shopping, dining and entertainment – across two 42-floor towers.

The customer, Bay Construction, continues to rely on Cummins for the project due to the strong relationship with Cummins Turkey and the team’s ability to provide a turnkey solution as a project partner.
