Overview

The 3516B DGB (Dynamic Gas Blending) generator sets are made to match your continuous and prime applications. Producing reliable power from 1750 to 2275 kVA at 50 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and accepts 100 percent rated load in one step. Our 3516B DGB generator sets have been developed for low fuel consumption — it's how we're helping you power responsibly. Ensure you have a non-stop power supply and to know your fleet status with our integrated control system, including switchgear as well as on-site and remote monitoring options. Our EMCP 4.3 control panel, with a user-friendly interface, combines all your management and diagnostic tools. It's not just quality that matters but customization, choose from a broad range of accessories and bolt-on system expansion attachments. Discover our flexible packaging to fit unique spatial requirements and environmental conditions. Our 3516B DGB generator sets are developed for such prerequisites, so that you can meet your specific power needs.
