DE715GC genset (715 kVA, 50 Hz, 400 V, Standby rating) has been installed at a medical building in Madrid, Spain - this building will be completed at the end of 2023.
The GC range has been designed primarily for standby power plants offering simplicity and reliability. Producing reliable power 715 kVA at 50 Hz, our DE715 GC generator set is powered by C15 diesel engine designed to ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements. The diesel engine is said to be a reliable, rugged, durable design which has been field-proven in thousands of applications worldwide, reports the company. A four-stroke-cycle diesel engine combines consistent performance and excellent fuel economy with minimum weight. The genset has been optimised for 5% Lower Fuel Consumption with longer run times between fuel fills; reduced operating costs. The generator set package for Madrid has been fully prototype-tested and accepts 100% block load in one step and meets NFPA 110 loading requirements. It conforms to ISO 8528-5 steady state and transient response requirements.
Special features include: superior motor starting capability which minimises need for oversizing the alternator. It is designed to match performance and output characteristics of typical diesel engines and offers robust Class H insulation, with a control panel offering user-friendly interface and navigation. To cope with Madrid's high summer temperatures the cooling system has been designed to operate in standard ambient temperatures up to a blistering 55°C (131°F).
