Overview

The 3516E diesel generator sets have been developed to meet your continuous, standby and prime applications and match your power standards. Producing reliable power from 2750 to 3000 kVA (3100 kVA without fan) at 50 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and to accept 100 percent rated load in one step. The generator set offers a low fuel consumption system.
