1600kVA-2000kVA Cat 3516

Overview

The 3516 diesel generator sets have been developed to meet your continuous, standby and prime applications and match your power standards. Producing reliable power from 1600 to 2000 kVA at 50 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and accepts 100 percent rated load in one step. All models of the 3516 generator sets all are designed for fuel efficiency, reducing operating costs. Our integrated control system, including ATS and switchgear, ensures a consistent power supply and connection to your fleet through on-site and remote monitoring options. Our EMCP 4.2 control panel, with a user-friendly interface, puts your management and diagnostic tools in one. It's not just quality that matters but customization, choose from a broad range of accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments. Discover our flexible packaging to fit unique spatial requirements and environmental conditions. Our 3516 generator sets are developed for such prerequisites, so that you can meet your specific power needs.
