Diesel-powered Generator Meets North American Specs

To expand upon the standard QAC 1 MW generator designed for the European market, Atlas Copco now offers the new QAC 1200 1 MW generator, specifically engineered to U.S. and Canadian specifications. With a wide variety of options, customers can customize the unit based on their situation, such as high altitudes or extreme weather conditions. The flexibility of the QAC 1200, according to the company, makes it ideal for either prime power or critical standby power in mining applications. The generator features a Cummins QST30G5 diesel engine that is EPA Tier 2 certified and provides 1,140 kVA/912 kW prime power rating (60 Hz). An integrated fuel tank provides a minimum run time of eight hours. The QAC 1200 was also engineered with 500-hour service intervals, resulting in low life cycle costs. With a compact container and a spillage-free frame, the QAC 1200 offers compliance with environmental regulations and efficient transportation. Low noise level (85 dBA at 1 meter) is ideal for sound-sensitive applications. Another option is the Qc4002 controller that allows a user to create a Power Management System (PMS). This allows a very simple method to parallel two or more generators beyond 1 MW, enhancing the core value of predictable power. Additional options include battery charger, coolant heater, alternator heater, external fuel supply three-way valves with quick connections, automatic fuel transfer system, engine lube oil makeup system, cold weather package, air inlet shutdown valve and spark arresto.
