Modern Iraq Company for Trading Agencies (MICTA), the authorised distributor of Cummins Power Generation products in Iraq, has provided prime power for an oil refinery operated by Mid Refinery Company. Part of Iraq’s Ministry of Oil, the company operates eight refineries in the central region of the country. This project – located 30 km from the capital Baghdad – is the third Mid Refinery Company site that MICTA has supplied with a Cummins Power Generation prime power solution.
MICTA has supplied, installed and commissioned a Cummins Power Generation C3300 D5 generator set operating at 6.6 kV with a QSK78 engine and remote radiator. Power control is provided by a PowerCommand® 3201 control. MICTA was also involved in the design of the generator room. The solution meets the 2.4 MW (excluding grid) total power requirement of the refinery.
MICTA was awarded the work on the basis of Cummins Power Generation product reliability, PowerCommand control features, lower fuel consumption and lower maintenance costs.
