Powering Africa off-grid

May 5th, 2017, Published in Articles: Energize


Cummins Power Generation specialises in the design and manufacture of pre-integrated generator sets (gensets) from 8  to 3300 kVA. Off-grid solutions are based on the specific needs of the operation or application in question, classed generally as either “standby” or “prime”. Standby generators provide power in the event of grid failure, while prime solutions are entirely separate from the national grid, and supply load power on a continous basis. The genset needs to be specified precisely in terms of its intended application. As part of its off-grid offering, the company provides a full and comprehensive range of services, including conceptualisation, design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance. Due to the complex and intricate nature of such solutions, a dedicated Cummins expert is assigned to oversee all aspects of the project, including the training of relevant customer personnel.
