Kohler unveils diesel industrial generator range
The KD Series now includes generator sets in nodes between 800 kVA and 4,200 kVA that are powered by "an entirely new line" of G-Drive engines
Kohler has launched an "all-new range" of large industrial diesel generators.
The KD Series now includes generator sets in nodes between 800 kVA and 4,200 kVA that are powered by "an entirely new line" of G-Drive engines, according to a press statement.
The generators will be available globally under the Kohler and Kohler-SDMO brands and are designed to deliver durability and reliability in a variety of emergency and prime applications.
Kohler's targeted industries for the new line include data centres, and healthcare, water treatment, oil and gas, telecommunications, and mining facilities.
Users are expected to save costs since "the line delivers the best fuel consumption at more nodes than any other competitor between 800 kW and 2,500 kW", the company claimed.
All products in the new range are designed for high ambient temperatures and have been designed with "high technology regulation", with monitoring control systems used for each component.
Remarking on the product's launch, Tom Cromwell, group president for power at Kohler, said: "After a very collaborative and thorough worldwide development process, we're very pleased to be rolling out this new line of generators.
"We expect strong response to these advanced new gensets.
"These generators are powered by our new G-Drive engines, which were developed to provide outstanding power density and complete dependability in the field," Cromwell continued.
"Plus, because these are fully-integrated Kohler generators, we'll be able to stand behind this line in an elevated manner, which includes a global three-year warranty."
