GEN-SETS When installing

GEN-SETS When installing twin 500 kVA gen-sets is a first resort Guests at the Elite City Resort Hotel in Kalamata on Greece’s Messenian coast have all the power they need thanks to newly-installed 500 kVA generators from Cummins Power Generation’s distributor Ergotrak provide standby power all year round. WIP has the story. Air conditioners, pool pumps, fire & security systems and the latest sound & vision entertainment systems are all power-hungry appliances. The technology is part of the reason why the Elite City Resort in Kalamata, Greece, is a luxury class hotel with many attractions. The resort has around 157 single and double rooms, plus public bars, restaurant, swimming pool, volleyball courts - and even its own small church. Guests expect the best quality service, and the hotel owners must be certain they can provide it at all times without interruption despite a regional history of unpredictable grid power outages, overvoltages and undervoltages. Today ,the hotel boasts two 500 kVA C500 D5 generator sets working in parallel, with standard QSX15 G8 engines. Management is provided by a PowerCommand® PCC3201 control system. Both units are housed internally in a specially-adapted room. Provision has been made for exhaust gas removal, and for indoor cooling to cope with the region’s high ambient temperatures.

Ergotrak has supplied backup power solutions to Greek hotels many times before, but the requirement in this case was different, as Ergotrak’s Sales Engineer Adonis Costakis explains: “Usually a hotel relies on only one genset, but in this case we’ve installed two in parallel. From April to the end of October is the resort’s busy period, but in winter the load is not so great. “If the hotel used a single 1,000 kVA gen-set, the load would be less than 35%, which is not good for the engine. But with two 500 kVA gensets installed in parallel, they can run efficiently on either one of them.” The gen-sets provide an effective all-year-round solution. In winter while one of the generator sets is available to provide backup power for the hotel, the other can undergo maintenance. The solution proposed by a competitor could not deliver parallel operation without adapting some of the equipment first. Cummins was able to The Cummins power solution comprises two enclosed sets housed in a specially adapted room. provide a more efficient solution in a shorter time, reports the company. The generator sets are situated in their own room at the back of the complex. An Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is located in an adjoining location. Installation of the equipment went smoothly, says the company, with special attention paid to the venting of exhaust gases and the requirement for air circulation for cooling. “The customer is very happy with the parallel solution we have installed,” Costakis reports. The installation is performing to expectations, and Ergotrak is providing servicing on an ongoing basis, he says.
