New Emergency Genset from Cummins

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Cummins launched the QSK60 C Power (CP) emergency generator set for offshore applications. It is driven by the QSK60 marine auxiliary engine with MCRS fuel system. Cummins emergency generator sets feature a Cummins marine auxiliary engine fit with radiator cooling and two independent starting systems. The new genset also features an optional air shut-off valve (ASOV) to meet the emergency shutdown requirements of offshore applications including drill ships. Cummins will offer two power options on QSK60 C Power to meet the regional requirements of offshore operators: 1,440 kWe and 1,800 kWe at 1,800 RPM (60 Hz). Assembled in Singapore, the 1,440 kWe package features a set-mounted radiator and a STAMFORD PM743E alternator from Cummins Generator Technologies. To meet Brazil’s local content requirements, the 1,800 kWe package is assembled at the Cummins facility in Rio de Janeiro and features a remote-mounted radiator and WEG GPA560 alternator.
