We asked the client is he had any requirements from the generator other than it being able to deliver at least 300kVA of electricity on demand, the client asked that the gen-set have reduced sound levels, be 50Hz, 3-Phase, 400 volts, it needed to start automatically and have enough fuel capacity for a 3-day run-time.

The customer was directed to look at the diesel generators from our 300kVA page which displays units from 300 to 400kVA, as the client specified at least 300kVA of backup power we were able to offer the Cummins C330D5 or either the Pramac GSW340P or the GSW330V.

The Cummins C330D5 is a diesel fuel-powered genset that delivers 300 kVA 240 kW of prime power and 330 kVA 264 kW of standby power the C330 D5 features a Cummins QSL9G5 diesel engine a Cummins Stamford HCI4D alternator and a Cummins PowerCommand 1.1 control panel, the Cummins Power Generation C330D5 is a 3-phase, 50Hz, 400V unit that comes complete with a battery charger, water heater, set mounted 4-pole circuit breaker, 691-litre base fuel tank & close fit acoustic canopy (77 dBA @ 1m).

Our second suggestion was the Pramac GSW340P Perkins diesel generator, the GSW340P offers 343kVA / 275kW of prime power and 313kVA / 250kW of standby or backup electrical supply. The GSW340P is a 400V, 50Hz 3-phase unit powered by a UK Diesel Perkins 1506A-E88TAG5 engine and features a Mecc Alte ECO38-3LN/4 alternator, a ComAp control panel the set comes complete with copper busbar connections, battery charger, set mounted 3-pole circuit Breaker, 636-litre base fuel tank & close fit acoustic canopy (68 dBA @ 7m).

Finally, we suggested the Pramac GSW330V which delivers 330kVA / 264kW of prime power and 315kVA / 252kW of backup or standby electricity supply, this gen-set is powered by a Volvo TAD1342GE engine and features an ECO38-2LN/4 alternator and ComAp control panel, again, this Pramac Volvo diesel generator is a 50Hz, 400V 3-phase generator that comes with copper busbar connections, battery charger, set mounted 3-pole circuit breaker, 636-litre base fuel tank & close fit acoustic canopy (68 dBA @ 7m). 

We spoke with the customer at length about the pro's and con's of each generator in comparison. The client decided to go with the Cummins C330D5 due to the remote control feature supplied by the control panel, they also appreciated the single source production of the unit.

Finally, we offered the customer an ATS panel and fuel tank to accompany the genset. The ATS panel will connect between the generator and mains electricity supply, when the ATS panel detects a drop in electricity supply from the mains it will kick the generator into action for a seamless transition from the mains supply to backup power from the C330D5, the customer also purchased a Western Global 27,000-litre fuel tank which will keep the generator running for over 4 days if required.
