São Paulo – Cummins Brasil sold 30 diesel generator sets to a power and refrigeration equipment rental company in Qatar. Besides the actual generator, the sets comprise other necessary equipment, such as panels. Cummins makes engines, filters, turbo, emission solutions and power generators. According to the company, the products will be employed in infrastructure works for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which Qatar will host.

The sale was completed via a distributor in Qatar and the equipment is from the Rental Power line (pictured above), available from the company’s Cummins Power Generation unit. The items in this line are manufactured by the Brazilian subsidiary of Cummins Latin America.

This line was picked precisely because its items suit the Arab country’s weather and requirements. The equipment is built to withstand temperatures of up to 50 degrees Celsius. “Apart from a cooling package suited for high temperatures, the equipment was sold including all Heavy Duty add-ons (air filter, fuel filter, battery disconnect switch, etc.),” Cummins Power Generation Latin America Product Marketing supervisor David Sato told ANBA.

Sato said this line is what sets Cummins’ Brazilian unit apart from the rest. “This is why we were able to sell direct to our client in partnership with our distributor,” said Sato. The deal comprised 15 units of the C300D2R, rated 330 kVA, and 15 units of the 440-kVA C400D5R.

“Right now, the Cummins Rental Power line at this power range is manufactured only in Brazil and the USA, and the Brazilian product has accessories for Heavy Duty applications – namely central eyelets [for hoisting], 110% fluid retention, easy user and maintenance access, exclusive controller and circuit breaker access, noiseless user experience, and external power with level gauge,” the supervisor explained.

Talks for the deal had been ongoing for six months before it went through in June 2019. The first pieces of equipment are due for delivery in September, and full delivery is expected by November. After this first batch, the company plans to keep selling in the region. “Yes, we do expect to export more product next year,” concluded David Sato.
