Leading player in power generation market presents its range for the telecommunication industry and debuts new generator set to help telcos target the “next billion” mobile subscribers.

[Manston, Kent, UK, 21st February 2012] Cummins Power Generation is exhibiting at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona this month (27th February – 1st March) where it will showcase its prime and standby generator set range for the telecoms industry. A key feature of the Cummins presence at the show will be the newly launched C17D5T generator set.

“The Mobile World Congress is one of the great comings-together of the global telecoms industry and this year’s event is expected to attract in the region of 60,000 attendees from across the world. At the Cummins Power Generation stand people can find out about the dedicated range for the telecommunication sector. Specifically, they can take a close-up look at the new C17D5T generator set and learn what it has to offer for mobile operators now and in the coming years,” said Alan Zhao, Director of Telecom and Renewable Energy.  The Cummins Power Generation stand will be in Hall 2.1 – 2.1E76.

Targeting the “next billion”

The C17D5T Series Integrated Generator Set is a powerful addition to the Cummins Power Generation family of products, ideal for mobile telecommunications in the world’s fast-growing developing markets. The new diesel-engined generator set features integrated automatic transfer switch, a large fuel tank and long intervals between services, allied to a heavy-duty engine and integral radiator cooling system.




The C17D5T is suited to the needs of mobile operators reaching new subscribers in remote areas – who are expected to account for the bulk of the “next billion” mobile connections according to research by leading analyst firm Ovum. Power provision is vital to base station sites servicing the widespread rural locations where these potential new subscribers live, and a prime-power source such as the Cummins Power Generation C17D5T will help operators install base stations reliably and efficiently.


Dependable solution

The C17D5T generator set operates at 50 Hz and has single phase and 3-phase rating of 17 kVA standby, 15 kVA prime. Reliability is ensured by a rugged, 4-cycle industrial engine which features low emissions and a fast response to load changes.

Cooling is provided by a standard integral radiator system, designed and tested for rated ambient temperatures – making it simpler to design generator sets installations to meet requirements for rejected heat.

Control is through Cummins Power Generation PowerCommand® 1.1, which provides total generator set system integration, including automatic remote starting and stopping, plus alarms and status message display.

Remote reliability

The C17D5T generator set is equipped with integrated automatic transfer switch (ATS), a 1,000 litre fuel tank and can run for 1,000 hours between servicing, including lube oil and air filter changes. The weather-protected, sound-attenuated enclosure, coupled with robust structural strength and pilferage-protected lockable fuel tank, make the C17D5T a practical and efficient choice for remote areas in developing regions.

“The growth in requirement for prime power is a key trend in the telecoms industry today, and the C17D5T generator set is an excellent prime power solution. It is ideally suited for environments in Asia, Africa, Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe and Latin America where the telecoms operators see their best mobile growth prospects. Mobile base stations in these regions are often far from a dependable grid supply. The integrated ATS makes it easy for installation and will  reduce installation time significantly. The quality and reliability of the diesel generator sets in these locations are critical,” said Alan Zhao.

The C17D5T is the latest member of a line of Cummins Power Generation products meeting both the prime and standby requirements of telecommunications operators. The range covers 8 kVA to 3,500 kVA for both 50Hz and 60Hz markets. These generator sets are suited to a variety of applications including cell towers, data centres and complex switching environments.
