ixteen T1900 industrial generators fitted with Mitsubishi engines have been delivered to Kuwait International Airport T2 & Carpark project to provide both standby and prime power as required. Manufactured by KOHLER, these feature the engine type S16R-Y1PTA-4. Meeting Performance class G3, the gensets offer a Frequency (Hz) of 50 Hz and Voltage (V) 400/230. Standby Rating (kVA) 1900 Prime Rating (kVA) 1727 Standby Rating (kW) 1520 Prime Rating (kW) 1382. Each genset incorporates a Standard Control Panel and Terminal block. The generating set model can be supplied with a protection unit, incorporating the power circuit breaker. This unit is mounted on the chassis and is connected to the alternator via cables. This AIPR function is also adapted for containers, reports KOHLER.
KOHLER offers a unique range of specific control units for its gensets: M80, APM403 and APM802. These control units offer a wide range of possibilities, from simplified running to management of the most complex parallel operations, and can be adapted to suit every need. This modularity is made even easier by the fact that each optional peripheral device (air cooler, daily service tank, fuel pump, etc.) has its own protection. For power plants, separate control boxes may be used in place of the control units.
The M80 dual function control unit uses a terminal block to connect a remote control/command unit and a dashboard with a direct read facility.
It is fitted with display screens that provide a global view of your electrical generating set's basic settings, as well as an emergency stop button and a terminal block. It also conforms to EC standards.
Located in the Farwaniya_Governorate, Kuwait, 15.5 kilometres (9.6 mi) south of the centre of Kuwait_City, Kuwait International Airport is spread over an area of 37.7 square kilometres (14.6 sq miles). It serves as the primary hub for Kuwait_Airways and Jazeera_Airways. A portion of the airport complex is designated as Abdullah Al-Mubarak Air Base, which contains the headquarters of the Kuwait Air_Force, as well as the Kuwait Air Force Museum. Four years ago Terminal 4 was inaugurated to cater to all flights operated by Kuwait's national carrier, Kuwait Airways. Terminal 4 can handle 4.5 million passengers annually and eases congestion at Terminal 1. There are 2,450 additional car parking spaces in a dedicated surface lot adjacent to the terminal and connected to the building by a bridge.
