Cummins, a global power leader and corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute and service diesel and natural gas engines and related technologies, showcased the long-awaited QSK95 Series of high-horsepower generator sets at Africa’s highly acclaimed Power & Electricity World Africa (PEWA) Exhibition. PEWA is the annual forum where industry professionals gather to acquire ideas on developing sustainable, clean and bankable world class energy for projects on the continent.

The QSK95 is specifically designed and engineered for critical applications that demand a robust, reliable source of power to ensure uninterrupted operations, for applications such as hospitals, sports stadiums, office buildings, data centers and the like. For operators that seek to maximise uptime, the QSK95 Series of generator sets exceeds industry standards by providing 100 percent, one-step load acceptance in less than 10 seconds. Commenting at the launch, Andre Kuhn, GM of Power Generation for Cummins Southern Africa said, “This incredible innovative product enjoys ratings of up to 3,500kW and delivers high-horsepower output while achieving installation economies with an innovative small-footprint design. Innovation is about unlocking and unleashing new ways of thinking, doing and delivering against a background of continuous improvement. We are very excited about bringing this product to the Southern African market, especially in light of the current energy situation.”

Cummins enjoys 90 years of experience in power generation and as a world leader in the design and manufacture of pre-integrated generator sets, ranging from 17kVA to 3750 kvA, produces its own components; from engines, alternators, transfer switches to control systems. Leading the industry in advanced emissions solutions, the company ensures that generator sets meet the required emission standards. Enjoying a strong history of emission leadership has enabled the company to develop its own emission solutions which are packaged in accordance with regulations and requirements.

Kenneth Gaynor, PowerGen Leader Southern Africa concluded, “Innovation is more than a word at Cummins, it is also a value that we live by. It is our pledge to our customers that we are committed to bringing them innovative, sustainable and reliable power solutions. More Dependability. It’s what we call The Power of More.”

Cummins Southern Africa is headquartered in Johannesburg, with branches in Longmeadow, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth; as well as Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The company also enjoys a wide range of dealer networks in support of its widespread Southern Africa footprint.
