Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger (MHIET), a part of the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has launched the new MGS-R Series of diesel generator sets which provide outputs ranging from 500 to 2,750 kVA for 50Hz, and 460 to 2,000 kVA for 60Hz for standby applications.
Developed to support the growing needs of the digital economy, primarily targeting data centres across the Asian and Middle Eastern markets, the new series also serves as a reliable back-up power solution for commercial facilities such as shopping malls and office buildings.
“At a time when reliable power is increasingly critical for commercial facilities such as data centres, we are pleased to announce that we have launched this new MGS-R Series,” says Ichiro Ichihashi, Senior General Manager, Engine & Energy Division of MHIET. “Many generator sets manufacturers purchase engines from suppliers, but we manufacture engines ourselves as well as generator sets. I believe this is our strength and our value. I am confident of the reliability and dependability of our generator sets that have sold 12,000 units worldwide.”
The MGS-R Series is the first upgrade to MHIET’s diesel generator set line-up in over two decades. The new series features 21 models that cover all rating categories. Some of the models were released while November 2021 while the remaining models will be introduced by the end of 2022.
“With the recent modifications to turbocharger specifications and improvement on fuel system and exhaust system to the engine, all models in the series boasts 10-second start. Newly adopting MHIET-made compact and high-power 12-cylinder engine on the 1,500kVA rating for 50Hz, the best-seller in the offerings, has made its installation area the smallest in class. Furthermore, overhaul interval has been extended to more than double by examining how generator sets are operated at sites,” Ichihashi says.
All MGS-R series models are compliant with ISO’s Class G3 and National Fire Protection Association standards.
