500 kVA Mobile Diesel Generator Set

This XQP500 generator set is fuel consumption optimized. A unique feature is the introduction of clutch fan drive technology, where the fan no longer needs to runs continuously at full speed and power. This saves additional fuel, while also lowering noise output; an ideal feature when operating at lower loads, in cooler temperatures, or most importantly, in evenings when noise levels are most noticeable.


Selectable 50/60Hz Operation

Easy frequency switch via terminal link eliminate geographical limitations allowing generator set to be used wherever it is needed

Flexible 3-way fuel valve

Extended run time provided by changeover from base tank to external bulk tank

Standard 500 Hour oil change intervals

Maximizes run time before routine service is required
