Atlas Copco introduces new 1 megawatt generator
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Atlas Copco introduced its new QAC 1200 1MW generator at Power-Gen International 2013 in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 12 through 14. To expand upon the standard QAC 1MW generator designed for the European market, the QAC 1200 was specifically engineered to Canadian and U.S. specifications.
The QAC 1200 features a Cummins QST30G5 diesel engine that is EPA Tier 2 certified and provides 1140 kVA/912 kW prime power rating (60 Hz). With this fuel efficient, electronically-governed engine, the integrated fuel tank provides a minimum run time of eight hours. The QAC 1200 was also engineered with 500-hour service intervals, resulting in low life cycle costs. Contained in a CSC approved 20-foot container, along with a spillage-free frame, the QAC 1200 offers complete compliance with environmental regulations. Low noise level (85 dBA at 1 meter) is ideal for sound-sensitive applications.
Another option available is the Qc4002 controller that allows a user to create a Power Management System (PMS). This allows a very simple method to parallel two or more generators beyond 1MW, enhancing the core value of predictable power.
Additional options include battery charger, coolant heater, alternator heater, external fuel supply 3-way valves with quick connections, automatic fuel transfer system, engine lube oil make up system, cold weather package, air inlet shutdown valve and spark arrestor.
