Cummins proves reliability with new water customer in Turkey

The supply of fresh water to the surrounding region cannot be interrupted by a power failure. Standby generator sets provide emergency power to keep water flowing at all times.

Despite previous installations with a different generator set supplier, the water treatment and distribution company İzmit Su A.Ş awarded Cummins Turkey the emergency backup power contract for the new water pump station in Tavsancil.

“Because of being a water pump station, continuity of energy is vital,” said Ozan Kir, project engineer at Cummins Turkey. “The customer was looking for a stable and reliable partner.”

During load tests witnessed by the customer, Cummins successfully demonstrated this reliability through performance data. Other key factors that led to the award include the turnkey solution, tailor-made enclosures and project development and execution from the Cummins Turkey sales team and its local dealer.

Cummins Turkey will deliver 4 x C2250D5 units and 1-x C220D5 units from Cummins Power Generation to power massive pumps located in the plant. Cummins engineers provided a customised container and synchronisation system to fulfill the customer’s specification. The project represents the first medium-voltage application for Cummins Turkey.
