Cummins introduced its latest gas product innovation, the C25G gas generator series, to the global power generation markets during the 2020 Middle East Energy (MEE) show at the Dubai World Trade Centre in the UAE in March. This new series of gas-powered generators is engineered to deliver superior fuel efficiency, with a power density of up to 580 kW from a 25 l engine, while providing reduced maintenance costs per kWh. Together with interconnectivity across the Cummins gas product range, and the vast support network, the C25G has been designed to support any gas-power need.
This new series offers a total package of gas-generator capabilities for combined heat and power (CHP/CCHP), demand side management, and alternative fuel applications, while being suitable for a diverse set of industries, ranging from hospitals and manufacturing to commercial building and utilities requiring continuous operation, whether it is grid parallel or island mode. The units comply with all global emissions regulations, while delivering a high electrical efficiency of up to 41,6% on pipeline natural gas, down to 68 methane number (MN) at full power. In addition to its generator capabilities, the innovative control systems fitted to the new series provide users with access to advanced monitoring, diagnostics, and predictive analytics, maximising the generators’ uptime and reducing maintenance labour costs.
The greater fuel flexibility offered by this new series of gas-powered generators allows users to utilise a wide range of fuels, including pipeline natural gas down to 60 MN, and low BTU fuels, offering robust uninterruptible power at any time. In addition to the fuel flexibility, the units can minimise the environmental impact with their cogeneration capabilities.
The NOX emissions are as low as 250 MN/Nm3, meeting global product-compliance requirements and certifications. Additional benefits linked with the cogeneration offering involve CO2 recovery to be used for heating, cooling, or steam generation, while achieving a superior thermal efficiency of up to 48% on pipeline natural gas. These units can deliver full power performance even in ambient temperatures of up to 41°C for the 500 kW units, and up to 34°C for the 580 kW units.
