Uninterrupted power for Peninsula Beverages
1st Quarter 2017, Other technologies


Cummins has ensured an uninterrupted power supply at Peninsula Beverages (PenBev) after the successful supply, installation and commissioning of three C2250 D5 generator sets and a DMC 300 master controller to provide standby power to Penbev’s Parow facility. Nick Roditis, project manager at Cummins Power Generation, says that the 11 kV standby power generation solution features a prime rating of 2000 kVA. “The generators were bought to mitigate production losses during load shedding and power interruptions. They ensure automatic startup during emergency outages, and can be synchronised with the council mains with the help of the DMC 300 master controller and the changeover panel, allowing for seamless transition from utility mains power to generator power during load shedding.”

Cummins was appointed on a turnkey basis to supply and install the gensets, sound-attenuating equipment and electrical installation. “This project was a success, thanks to proactive client involvement, exceptional client relationships, frequent communication, productive site visits, an exceptional electrical contractor, good planning and full-time project management,” Roditis comments.

The PenBev project ran simultaneously with Cummins power generation projects at three SABMiller breweries, and three Amalgamated Beverage Industries (ABI) bottling plants nationwide.

The projects were adjudicated on technical competence, on-time delivery and price. Cummins met all the procurement criteria, with a specific emphasis placed on delivery. The projects were a technical success, and were delivered on-time and within budget.
