Generator: Kohler Power Systems
Kohler Power Systems is launching an all-new line of large natural gas generators designed specifically for standby, prime, or continuous power applications in the North American market. The new line of large gas gensets, which will be available in nodes ranging from 425 kW to 1,300 kW, meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) operational requirements and offer advanced control and monitoring capabilities through the Kohler Decision-Maker® 8000 digital controller.
The new line of large gas gensets is capable of operation on natural gas as well as a wide variety of non-pipe line gases. These generators can be paired with Kohler switchgear and automatic transfer switches for paralleled or non-parallel operation for a wide variety of applications. All models within the new line feature Kohler’s Decision-Maker 8000 digital controller, an advanced controller offering intuitive system monitoring and diagnostics as well as control for paralleling and remote monitoring capabilities.
To power the new large gas line, Kohler collaborated with Dresser-Rand and created specially tuned engines for the generator set market. These engines accept a wide range of input fuels and are highly resistant to fuel contamination.
