Atlas Copco introduced its QAC 1200 1mW generator at Power-Gen International 2013 in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 12 through 14. To expand upon the standard QAC 1mW generator designed for the European market, the QAC 1200 was specifically engineered to U.S. and Canadian specifications. With a wide variety of options, customers can customize the unit based on their situation such as high altitudes or extreme weather conditions. The flexibility of the QAC 1200 makes it ideal for either prime power or critical standby power in the mining, oil and gas, industrial and construction industries, as well as being an excellent rental product, according to the company.

The QAC 1200 features a Cummins QST30G5 diesel engine that is EPA Tier II certified and provides 1140 kVA/912 kW prime power rating (60 Hz). With this fuel efficient, electronically-governed engine, the integrated fuel tank provides a minimum run time of eight hours. The QAC 1200 also was engineered with 500-hour service intervals, resulting in low life cycle costs. With a compact 20-ft. (6 m) container and a spillage-free frame, the QAC 1200 offers complete compliance with environmental regulations and efficient transportation. Low noise level (85 dBA at 1 meter) is ideal for sound-sensitive applications.

Another option available is the QC4002 controller that allows a user to create a power management system (PMS). This allows a very simple method to parallel two or more generators beyond 1mW, enhancing the core value of predictable power.

Additional options include battery charger, coolant heater, alternator heater, external fuel supply 3-way valves with quick connections, automatic fuel transfer system, engine lube oil make up system, cold weather package, air inlet shutdown valve and spark arrestor.

“Customers don’t need a piece of equipment; they need power. In order to deliver these key benefits and the peace of mind that comes with them, Predictable Power is ingrained in everything we do, from design, testing, building, to commissioning and maintenance,” said Atlas Copco Portable Energy’s Julio Tome, product manager — generators.
