Warid Telecom has selected Cummins Power Generation‘s proven electricity backup solution for parallel operations. Before Warid Cummins had successfully erected six generators for Telenor.
Cummins press release says that Warid Telecom was particularly interested in sourcing generator set solutions that could deliver both standby and prime power even in the most difficult terrain. This is because it has installations in some of the most difficult environments in the country including high altitude and extreme weather conditions.
Given Cummins Power Generation’s proven product reliability, even in the harshest conditions, Warid Telecom chose 300 Cummins Power Generation C33 D5 generator sets operating on 50Hz, to deliver 33kVA (standby) and 30kVA (prime) of power each.
The C33 D5 is a fully integrated power generation system, providing optimum performance, reliability and versatility for any application. It features the rugged four-cycle industrial 4B3.3 diesel engine, delivering reliable power, low emissions and fast response to load changes and comes with the power command electronic control as standard. This enables it to be controlled remotely with precise voltage regulation making it ideal for hard to reach installations.
Qamar Uz Zaman Khan, national manager engineering, Warid Telecom, says: “Cummins Power Generation has successfully completed the supply of a significant number of generators – 300 units – in a relatively short time frame and we have been impressed by the ease and seamless handling of such a large scale operation.”
