STAMFORD | AvK provide the ultimate power solution for world-class expertise and 24/7 global lifecycle support, as the world’s energy demands evolve, reports the company.
A spokesman comments: "Our STAMFORD® and AvK® alternators are renowned throughout the power generation industry for dependability and pioneering innovation, from 7.5-11,200kVA. Peace of mind is guaranteed in a range of applications including marine, telecoms, standby and critical protection, CHP, rail and prime power."
The KJV550 synchron mode generator sets are three-phase 50Hz diesel-powered units with 4-Stroke, 1500 RPM, water-cooled heavy duty diesel engines, each with a
protection system on manuel run, Flexible oil pipes and oil draining valves, a Pre-heater, Lubrication oil and anti-freeze.
The sets have a STAMFORD | AvK Alternator - 4-Pole, synchrontype, single bearing, brushless alternator, Batteries and cables. Electrostatic paint coated, steel, welded chassis, a Fuel tank housed in the chassis, an Industrial type silencer and an Electronic battery charger.
Each generator is powered by a TAD1641GE Volvo Penta engine. The TAD1641GE is a powerful, reliable and economical generating set diesel engine built on the dependable in-line six
design. The engine is designed for easiest, fastest and most economical installation. It is well-balanced to produce smooth and vibration-free operation with low noise level.
To maintain a controlled working temperature in cylinders and combustion chambers, the engine is equipped with piston cooling. The engine is also fitted with replaceable cylinder liners and valve seats/guides to ensure maximum durability and service life of the engine.
The state of the art, high-tech injection and charging system with low internal losses contributes to excellent combus1tion and low fuel consumption.
The TAD1641GE complies with EU Stage 2 exhaust emission regulations. It has easily accessible service and maintenance points contribute to the ease of service of the engine.
Engine and block feature an optimized cast iron cylinder block with optimum distribution of forces without the block being unnecessarily heavy.
