Cummins, a global power technology leader, has introduced the first set of Centum Series generator sets which are said to be engineered to meet customers’ precise power needs with high-efficiency engines that fit in a smaller footprint, while lowering both installation and fuel costs.
“With the Centum Series, a user specifies exactly the needed power – no more, no less,” says Kunj Sheth, Global Marketing Director – Mission Critical, Cummins. “The Centum Series is a high-performance, high-power density system that delivers the power users’ need in a smaller footprint, enabling them to hit performance specifications without being required to buy more than needed.”
“The Centum Series represents much more than a new approach to power generation. It’s a new standard for the next 100 years of power,” Sheth says
The first release in this evolving generator series – the Centum C1250D6E/ C1500D6E generator set – was unveiled at a virtual event in July. It includes the QSK38 engine and Stamford S-Range alternator. Its compact design enables ease of installation, service, and maintenance.
The generator sets deliver power dependably, even in hot and humid climates, high altitudes and aggressive environments, and transient performance – fast recovery from large load swings leads to less power disruption and a more stable power supply for consistent, predictable operations, he adds.
The units meet US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for Tier 2 up to Tier 4 compliance.
Centum Series generators have been designed with an eye on future standards to help users meet sustainability goals. They have the flexibility to meet or exceed emissions regulations without sacrificing performance. Centum Series generators can be configured to run on diesel fuel, low-emissions diesel and biodiesels such as hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO).
