A client contacted Diesel Generator Direct to source a 200 kVA that will be used to supply backup electrical power to a food processing factory in Birmingham, ideally, they were looking for a diesel generator that could provide at least 190kVA backup but more headroom would be useful, they wanted a quiet generator reduced sound levels and ideally would be emission friendly on the environment, apart from that the customer was open to suggestions.

The food production factory in Birmingham, West Midlands runs a large production line and any downtime can cost the company thousands of pounds in lost income. A recent power cut hit the company especially hard as the factory lost power at the beginning of the day and did not manage to get back online for 6 hours. The stock was unusable as it had past its use by time and staff had to be paid, this event prompted the factory manager to source a low-cost backup power solution and begun looking for a diesel generator for sale in the UK.

The West Midlands factory manager found the Diesel generator Direct website online and made contact with us, once we heard the customers power requirements we had a look at generators that we thought fit the bill because the client had quite a wide margin of required kVA there were a few options on offer. Firstly we suggested the Cummins C200D5e, the C200 D5e is a 182 kVA 146 kW prime and 200 kVA 160 kWe backup power genset powered by a Cummins QSB7G5 engine and featuring a Cummins Stamford UCI274H alternator and Cummins Stamford PowerCommand control panel, this gen-set comes complete with a Stage 3a emission compliant Cummins engine, battery charger, water heater, set -mounted 4-pole circuit breaker, 464-litre base fuel tank & close fit acoustic canopy (76 dBA @ 1m).

Next, we suggested the Pramac GSW220P which offers 202 kVA / 161 kW prime power and 220 kVA / 176 kW backup power supply, the GSW220P is powered by a UK Diesel Perkins 1106A-70TAG4 engine and features a Mecc Alte ECO38-2SN/4 alternator and ComAp control panel, this Perkins generator comes with battery charger, set-mounted 3-pole circuit breaker, 350-litre base fuel tank & close-fit acoustic canopy (68 dBA @ 7m). but unfortunately, this Pramac diesel generator was not Stage IIIa emissions-compliant which ruled it out against the C200D5e.

Finally, we suggested the Cummins C220D5e which is essentially the same genset as the C200D5e by Cummins with more power, the Cummins Uk C220 D5e delivers 200 kVA 160 kW of prime power and 220 kVA 176 kW of backup electricity supply. The C220D5e is power by a Cummins QSB7G5 engine and features a Cummins Stamford UCI274H alternator and Cummins PowerCommand 1.2 automatic control panel allowing full control of the genset using a logical user interface control panel mounted on the side of the generator. The C220 D5e is a 3-phase, 50 Hz genset that comes complete with a battery charger, water heater, set mounted 4-pole circuit breaker, 464-litre base fuel tank & close-fit acoustic canopy that offers 77 dBA from as close as 1m away from the diesel generator.

The customer decided to go with the C220D5e due to the power headroom and tier iiia emissions, really it was exactly the spec generator the customer was looking for. Finally, the customer purchased and ATS panel and Western Global Fuel Tank to go with his genset, the ATS panel will be connected to the Birmingham factories mains electricity supply and will kick the Cummins emergency generator into action the moment that it detects a drop in electricity supply from the mains grid. The Western Global fuel tank will also be connected up to the genset and give fuel to the generator for well over 48 hours meaning the factory will have a backup electricity supplied day/night and weekends without anyone needing to visit the generator.
