500kVA Cat C15 GENSET

Overview

The C15 diesel generator sets have been developed for your mission critical, standby and prime applications. Producing reliable power from 455 to 550 kVA at 50 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and built to accept 100 percent rated load in one step. Our C15 generator sets range from low fuel consumption systems EU Stage IIIA Non-road Emission Standards. The EMCP 4.2 control panel offers fully featured power metering with communications via Modbus RS-485, SCADA, or CAN data links. It's not just quality that matters but customization, choose from a broad range of accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments. All C15 generator sets are supplied with 4 years Extended Service Coverage when used in a standby application (ESC - for industry leading warranty coverage) when registered. Discover our flexible upgradeable packaging options to work with your spatial restrictions and environmental conditions. Our C15 generator sets are developed for such prerequisites, so that you can meet your specific power needs.
