Overview

Producing reliable power from 1450 ekW to 1750 ekW at 60 Hz, our 3516 diesel generator sets are made to meet your continuous, standby and prime applications and match your power standards. Each meets ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and accepts 100 percent rated load in one step. And 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. To adapt your power source to your needs, add any of our accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments. Find flexible packaging options to work with your spatial requirements and environmental conditions. Our 3516 generator sets are built to power — make them meet your specific power needs.
