KSA has supplied two 1400 kVA for a large hotel chain located in the Zeytinburnu region. Equipped with a PERKINS 4012-46TWG2A engine, a Mecc Alte ECO 43-2L/4A alternators and a DSE 7320 control unit, the AP 1400 units provide optimum performance and reliability. They are suitable for stationary standby, prime power, and continuous duty applications. All generator sets are factory built, and production tested. The 4012-46TWG2A is a 12-cylinder 46 L turbocharged diesel engine. This reliable engine is a part of Perkins 4000 range of diesel engines. The 4012-46TWG2A is currently manufactured in Stafford, UK. The Perkins build list for this engine model begins DGKM. The 4012-46TWG2A runs at 50 Hz and is a very capable and versatile engine. It also has the option of coming with a temperate or tropical radiator. The turbocharged and air to water cooled engine requires 177 L of oil for lubrication, 196 L of coolant for the water cooling system and has a total displacement of 45.842L. The power output of the Perkins 4012-46TWG2A is 1641 horsepower (1224 kWm) at 1500 RPM and an excellent power to weight ratio.
The engine can be used at Prime (PRP), Standby (ESP) and Continuous (COP) ratings in a diesel generator therefore it will cover most generator power requirements around the world. The Perkins 4012-46TWG2A fuel consumption depends on its load. At 1500 rpm prime power it is has the following fuel consumption (percent of prime power): At 50% it uses 143 litres/hr; at 75% it uses 196 litres/hr; at prime power it uses 259 litres/hr; and at standby power it uses 288 litres/hr.
This Perkins Diesel Engine has dimensions of 3714mm (146") Long, 1780mm (70") Wide and 2255mm (89") high. The cylinders have dimensions of 160mm for the bore and 190mm for the stroke. The (dry) mass of the engine is 5220kg. The rotation of this engine is anti-clockwise, as viewed from the fly wheel. This powerful engine can be used for a variety of high power sectors around the world. This would be done by pairing the engine with an alternator to make a generator. To further increase the power output the generator set can be placed in parallel with other generators.
