The generators are housed in close fit factory built enclosures that were engineered to fit within a newly created but very compact compound area.
SOLUTION & RESULT
The generating sets were supplied with the advanced Kohler / SDMO APM802 control system which ensured that all of the sets were synchronised and online well within the 15 second requirements of HTM 06.
The installation package provided by WB Power Services included a difficult off load and positioning process, a new fuel distribution system connected to the existing bulk tank as well as upgrades to the switchgear and installation of all necessary interconnecting power and control cables.
The 4 x 650kVA prime rated Kohler- SDMO generating sets, which use the highly regarded Volvo engines, underwent rigorous load testing at our headquarters prior to delivery to site.
