Gas generators power equivalent of 52 000 homes

With increased demand for low carbon power generation, industries need alternative energy sources to reduce their carbon footprint while maintaining reliable and robust performance. To meet this need, Cummins has expanded its gas range by launching the HSK78G gas generator series. With a power density of up to 2 MW, Cummins lean-burn gas generators are designed to provide reliable power for a diverse set of industries. HSK78G generators use natural, low-cost, low-BTU free-fuel sources that would otherwise be considered waste products.

At 47,1% and 2110 kW of thermal output for heating, cooling and steam generation, the generator series provides significant environmental benefits. They can also run in parallel with combined heat and power (CHP) systems, which can convert 70% to 90% of the energy into useful electricity or heat, further increasing sustainability.

The HSK78G has been successfully installed across a wide range of applications, from horticultural, logistics and manufacturing, through to gas power for power stations and backup power to the national grid. It provides reliable power no matter how extreme the fuel source or operating conditions for both prime and peak power applications.

The generator has proven itself in a number of prime power applications, for example a CHP application for a Belgian horticultural company. With a total return greater than 100%, the company was able to meet all its energy needs, including lighting, carbon dioxide recuperation and hot water, all while producing sufficient excess power to sell back to the national grid.
