Cummins has supplied a standby power system for a new shopping centre in Ankara, Turkey.
The system, comprising 11 gensets working in parallel, will provide backup power at the Metromall mixed-used development in the bustling Turkish capital.
The US-based engines and gensets manufacturer said the system, ordered by Sogut Construction, comprises seven of its C1675D5A generators, three C1100D5Bs and one C700D5— all “coupled with the latest in controls technology with the Cummins PowerCommand Control 3.3 and masterless load demand (MLD).
“MLD allows the controller to smartly manage power from paralleled generators and match varying load patterns, offering additional flexibility and fuel savings,” Cummins said.
The project was led by Cummins’ authorised Ankara dealer AET Güç Sistemleri San. ve Tic. Circuit breakers and technical support was provided locally. Cummins Turkey also provided technical support with ventilation and noise systems.
