Power solutions for load shedding

2nd Quarter 2019 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

From mines to factories and even the small business and residential sector, Cummins has a full range of alternative power solutions on offer. The technology is particularly suited to dealing with load shedding due to features such as full load acceptance for critical equipment.

In addition, its energy-efficient engines not only comply with international emission standards, but also have a high fuel tolerance level, which makes them ideal for arduous African operating conditions. In terms of automatic start-up, Cummins gensets have one of the best response times on the market.

Cummins can also supply one-stop solutions for multiple backup power requirements for large scale clients such as mining operations or factories. It not only provides the gensets themselves, but all ancillary components, from air and oil filters and even coolant.

Another significant benefit for Cummins clients is that it can supplement its gensets with maintenance contracts of varying duration, depending on the application and specific requirements. Clients also have peace of mind because only certified installers are used, in addition to the company being able to offer the type of warranty that sets an industry benchmark. Cummins can even become involved with the design phase of alternative power solutions, all the way through to installation and commissioning. Fully-trained technicians are located throughout South Africa, in addition to an extensive dealer network that can also accommodate remote locations.
