Generating Interest in Generators
Kohler - SDMO
KOHLER-SDMO proudly unveiled an all-new range of large diesel industrial generators at a global launch last October, in Strasbourg, France. The company’s new KD Series includes generator sets in nodes between 800 KVA and 4 200 KVA, which are powered by an entirely new line of KOHLER G-Drive engines. The generators will be available globally under the KOHLER and KOHLER/-SDMO brands and are designed to deliver extreme durability and ultimate reliability in a variety of standby and prime applications. Targeted industries include: data centers, healthcare facilities, water treatment plants, oil and gas plants, telecommunications and mining.
“This is an exciting and transformational product launch,” says Hervé Prigent, General Manager of SDMO Industries. “After a collaborative and thorough worldwide development process, we’re pleased to be rolling out this new line of generators. We expect strong response to these advanced new gensets that will offer beneficial cost savings and unrivaled performance.”
The KD Series generators offer cost savings thanks to the line’s superior fuel efficiency, extended service intervals, and space-saving footprint. The new generators are designed to meet global emissions regulations and are highly customisable to match an end user’s specific requirements. Multiple alternator options are available for powerful motor starting, and a variety of other options and accessories can be selected to ensure optimal performance for the most demanding applications.
Other notable features include an intuitive digital controller and a highambient cooling system. The Kohler APM802 digital controller offers comprehensive system monitoring and diagnostics through a 12” touchscreen. Fast and secure remote access to key system details is also available through smartphones and other mobile devices. The generator’s high-ambient cooling system was designed for extreme operating
conditions and uses segmented radiator core sections, which can help save considerable time and money by allowing for single-section replacement rather than the entire core.
“These generators are powered by our new state-of-the-art G-Drive engines, which were created for unmatched power density and complete dependability in the field,” Prigent continues. “Plus, because these are fully-integrated KOHLER-SDMO generators, we’ll be able to stand behind this line in an elevated manner, which includes a global three-year warranty – the best in the industry.”
When service is needed, KOHLERSDMO has a global dealer and distribution infrastructure offering 24/7 parts availability. Distributor technicians are factory-trained to provide fast and accurate assistance, and have expertise in power specifications, equipment integration, and more.
