Three luxury towers of varying topography house 122 residential units over an 18,000-square-meter natural park reserve. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide endless views of the cityscape, and penthouses enjoy panoramic views of the park, the river and the city below with large terraces, grills and pools.

This is Jade Park, an “urban oasis” in Asunción, Paraguay, and a continuation of the Jade residences in southern Florida from real estate firm Fortune International Group. Jade Park is also the first building in Paraguay with the internationally recognized style of Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott. Cummins Latin America supplied three generator sets (models C1000D5B, C1400D5, C1675D5) to be used as backup power, thus ensuring continuous, stable power for residents and visitors of the complex.

Throughout the 1970s Ott worked on major development projects in the U.S., Costa Rica, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. He rose to international fame in 1983, when he won the design competition for the Opera de la Bastille in Paris, a project that commemorated the 200-year anniversary of the French Revolution. This opened the door to many other competitions and accomplishments all over the world for years to come.

The city of Asunción was chosen by Fortune International Group for the first Jade building in Latin America, in partnership with Jiménez Gaona y Lima, the leading construction company in Paraguay.

Whereas the customer had a long history of working with another generator set supplier, Cummins demonstrated its leadership early on, thus gaining the business opportunity over the incumbent supplier. “We started working with the engineers in charge of design and construction,” said Power Generation Sales Manager Patricia Gabriela Miracle. “This enabled us to be considered as a partner that wanted to give them the best solution. So, they opened the doors to us and this drove us to get the project.”

Cummins demonstrated to Jade Park that it had the ability to provide a high-performance power system together with professional sales and service support at a cost-effective price. Local service was key, along with the brand reputation and The Power of One™ offered by Cummins as a complete power solution provider.

Boron Mine Provided With Reliable Power Source from Cummins

Turkey is the world’s largest producer of boron minerals, possessing 73% of known deposits. Boron is used in the production of ceramics and glass, including fiberglass, along with agricultural and cleaning solutions among other applications.

A 2,500 kVA power system from Cummins is a reliable emergency source of power for a boron mine facility in Turkey’s northwestern region. Cummins Turkey provided a single Cummins C2500 D5A generator set with a silencer and compensator to the Eti Maden plant, located in Balıkesir. 

The Power Generation team at Cummins Turkey provided expert sales and project management to implement the right solution to meet the customer’s needs while Cummins authorized dealer AET supported in the commissioning and maintenance of the system with their certified technical representatives.

Cummins’ work in the Turkish mining industry has earned a strong reputation. Last year, Cummins Turkey installed three units of the 95-liter QSK95 Series generator sets to support operations at Çöpler Gold Mine in the northeastern part of the country, the first QSK95 installation in the country. Cummins Turkey was also selected as the standby power provider for TÜMAD’s gold and silver mine in the northwest area.

How a Home Generator Can Help Sell Your Home for Top Dollar

Image of generator set outside of home

Retractable glass walls. High ceilings. Quartzite countertops. Butler’s pantry. Spa bathroom. Smart home systems. 4-car garage. Barn, carriage house or in-law apartment. Home standby generators. All are luxury features found in high-end homes according to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal

Inventory of luxury homes currently exceeds demand. To attract more buyers at high-end price points, sellers must invest in the right upgrades with innovative features. A home standby generator can help protect those home upgrades featured in The Wall Street Journal’s list of upgrades to sell your home for top dollar in the event of a power outage, but it also offers innovative features of its own such as quiet operation and low carbon footprint. A home standby generator turns on the moment an outage strikes to maintain power to appliances, smart home devices, security systems or even your entire home. 

According to our resident real estate expert Angel Piontek, Associate Broker and Vice President of Marketing at Coldwell Banker Elite in Fredericksburg, VA, homeowners who install a home generator will recoup half of their investment within the first year of ownership, making investing in a home standby generator a no-brainer. Additionally home standby generators also allow you to be a good neighbor during an outage, save money, and protect your home and family during the cold winter months

Cummins Power Systems Celebrates Significant Production Milestone and Reflects on Partnership with the Department of Defense

Cummins Power Systems offers innovative products that power the unique needs of our customers across the globe. Since the first contract was awarded in 2007, the Department of Defense (DoD) has been one of these customers who relies on Cummins technology to support combat operations tactical power requirements using the Advanced Medium Mobile Power Systems (AMMPS). The team behind the product recently celebrated production of the 25,000th unit built in the Fridley, Minnesota (USA) plant, a significant milestone for this critical technology. 

For the past 12 years, Cummins has been the prime contractor for the DoD and the producer of AMMPS generators. In August of 2018, a new $491 million contract was signed to continue AMMPS production through 2023. This volume necessitates two shifts on the Fridley line for the next four years. Colonel Adrian Marsh, who leads the AMMPS procurement office, PM-E2S2, and is responsible for all Tactical Electric Power within the DoD, explained, “Everything the soldiers do depends on Cummins AMMPS generators. AMMPS powers all equipment required for us to complete our mission. In addition, Cummins generators provide electrical power so our soldiers can call home and speak with their families, watch television to stay connected with home, and stay cool with air-conditioned facilities.”   

Colonel Marsh journeyed to Fridley to help celebrate the significant 25,000th production milestone, and was joined by over 100 plant and office employees who have been integral in the production of AMMPS. The celebration was an opportunity to reflect on the current and past partnership between Cummins and the United States Army. Gino Butera, Vice-President of Cummins Power Systems, reflected on the strength of this relationship, stating, “Cummins and the U.S. Army have been partners for over 75 years. Cummins supplied the Allied Forces during WWII with over 70,000 generator sets. Cummins also produced the first Military Standard Generator for the U.S. Army and partnered with the Army on the second generation Tactical Quiet Generators (TQGs) and today the third generation of standard generator sets, AMMPS.” 

Darren Wildman, America’s Operations Leader for Power Systems summed up the sentiment shared by all who work on this program by stating, “It’s been an honor to be of service to those who serve us unselfishly every day.”

Congratulations, and thank you to all employees who have contributed to this milestone.
