Cummins launches new twinpack rental power diesel generator
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) has launched a new 1MW twinpack rental generator, the C1000D6RE, which offers a competitive rental power solution for a diverse range of applications throughout North America. Manufactured by Cummins, a company that has been synonymous with technology, reliability and service since 1919, the new C1000D6RE model will be built in Fridley, Minnesota.
As a twinpack, the C1000D6RE combines two Cummins 15L, 500kW generators into a single, 40ft power unit, complete with aftertreatment. This enables the C1000D6RE to meet Tier 4 final emissions regulation while delivering reliable, high output performance. The generator can be used in parallel with other rental power solutions and is capable of masterless load demand.
The C1000D6RE offers a 1000kW power rating as per ISO 8528 and is powered by 2 x U.S Tier 4 Final certified QSX15 Cummins engines. The QSX15 engine meets the stringent EPA standards without the need of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which offers ease of serviceability, lower emissions and greater performance.
A new heavy-duty trailer and hitch design ensures even greater reliability for rugged mobile power applications. The generator’s container is capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions, while a full sound attenuation package minimizes the generator’s noise levels. For faster and cleaner oil changes, a ‘Quick Fit’ oil evacuation system option is also provided.
Weighing in at 69,000lbs with fuel, the C1000D6RE comes equipped with a front-end stabilizer and mobile air-ride to reduce the impacts of travel, minimizing potential down time.
The C1000D6RE is suitable for use across a wide range of large-scale industries requiring rental power, including: construction sites, emergency power, large scale events, industrial buildings and utilities located in remote locations or urban areas.
John Gibbons, Rental Power Markets Director at Cummins, said: “We’ve listened to our customers and developed the C1000DR6RE specifically to meet their demands. We also wanted to prioritize the production of a generator that continues to provide reliable power solutions, regardless of climate, location or industry. We believe this product will provide markets with greater reliability, improved performance and increased flexibility.”
The 1MW twinpack model can be used for a diverse range of industries requiring mobile power; ranging from construction sites, industrial buildings and utilities located in remote locations or urban areas. The remote start and stop contact functionality allows the generator set to be switched on and off upon demand without the need of local maintenance support. As a result, customers can expect more stability, greater uptime and lower labor costs leading to lower total cost of ownership.
To ensure continued performance, Cummins offers customers servicing and maintenance of its mobile power generator range. Cummins aftermarket capabilities are provided through a network of over 200 local sales and service locations across North America; supported by a global system of service technicians, engineers and part distribution centers, experienced in offering mobile power solutions to fit any power requirement.
