A new video from the Energy Solutions Business (ESB) unit of the Power Projects Group illustrates the breadth of total project capabilities and solutions that the business unit can deliver to meet customer needs around the world. As Tony Satterthwaite, president of Cummins Power Generation, notes in the video, ESB offers combined heat and power (CHP) solutions that are simple in concept but quite challenging to implement in practice.
Partnering with local specialists, ESB can handle site surveys, civil engineering work, mechanical and electrical engineering, and project management. It can even build and operate an on-site power generation facility and sell the output to the customer.
The video touches on ESB project capabilities in several locations across the globe, including Russia, Brazil, Scotland and the U.S. The primary focus of the video is a case history of an ESB project in Port Stanvac, Australia. There was a 10-year-old power generation facility using trailerized generator sets on the site. The customer wanted to build an entirely new plant on the existing site, moving the trailerized units to a nearby location. ESB took on the total project responsibility for moving the existing installation to the new location and building a new 65 MW peaking power plant on the original site.
Tony Satterthwaite also notes in the video that CHP customers want three things: a) to save money, b) to reduce their carbon footprint and c) to have dependable systems that allow them to get on with their business. The goal of Cummins ESB is the same: to provide total solutions that customers can count on to make their businesses work.
