Cummins Generator Technologies will launch its latest product in the new STAMFORD S- Range of alternators at Middle East Electricity 2017 that will be held from 14-16 February

The new STAMFORD S6 (810 ? 1400 kVA+), featuring patented CoreCooling? technology, brings advances in power density, quality and reliability to industrial marine and commercial applications. It is part of a rapid global product development programme launched by Cummins Generator Technologies, manufacturers of STAMFORD and AvK alternators, which replaces the current STAMFORD range ? from 7.5kVA to 5000kVA+ - in a phased introduction.

The new S-Range family of alternators is offered with a three-year warranty as standard, across all customers, applications and regions. 

The S-Range builds on the proven technology of the popular STAMFORD range of products from UC22 ? P80. However, using innovative thermal, electromagnetic and mechanical levers, CoreCooling? enables the new STAMFORD S-Range to deliver an increase in power density when compared to predecessors ? the STAMFORD HC4, HC5 and HC6, says the company. 

Trevor French, general manager of AvK global sales and marketing at Cummins Generator Technologies, says, ?As the global market leader in alternators we have been able to adapt quickly to market demand and, by making refinements and improvements, can now offer customers a range of enhanced machines that more directly meet their needs. Over the coming months the market will see more products introduced, all of which will give customers market leading power density and improved performances.?

Scott Strudwick, director, global sales and marketing, adds, ?CoreCooling? is the name we have attributed to a suite of advanced technologies being implemented across the S-Range of products. The new patented technologies target performance enables us to make significant changes on both current and future products. It?s a key enabler to improve power density and deliver industry leading reliability to our customers.

?This new product range will be available from our China and European manufacturing facilities. Each development programme for the range will be led from one of our regional design centres, enabling us to leverage our global expertise and knowledge in product development.?

The CoreCooling? brand name will be displayed on the drive end bracket covers on all STAMFORD S-Range products fitted with this new technology. 

Cummins Generator Technologies manufactures premium quality alternators up to 11,200 kVA under the STAMFORD and AvK brands. The company designs, manufactures and distributes engines and related technologies, including fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission solutions and electrical power generation systems.

Following on from the successful launch of the STAMFORD S0/S1, S4 and S5 products, the STAMFORD S6 shares the same modular foot flexibility that facilitates greater compatibility with customers? existing genset designs and for ease of assembly. 

S-Range alternators meet the critical needs of various applications, be it oil and gas auxiliary, combined heat and power, critical protection and UPS, continuous power and standby ? each demanding the highest level of performance. 

Sridhar Narayanan, global product engineering team leader at Cummins Generator Technologies, reiterates, ?With over 100 years? experience we have put a great deal of time, investment and expertise into research and development, constantly looking for ways to innovate, update and improve our products. The STAMFORD S6 encompasses a range of solutions put together in the right mix in order to enhance product capability.?

The new STAMFORD S-Range draws upon the company?s market leading expertise and heritage to create a family of alternators that provide solutions for a wide range of industrial, marine and commercial applications. n
