1000kVA Generator – QAC1100 TwinPower
The Atlas Copco QAC 1100 Twin Power is designed for easy servicing; the large access doors and custom service tools make for effortless maintenance and assured uptime. The positioning of the motor and alternator sets enables multiple access points to all the main components.
To tackle even bigger jobs, this 1000kVA generator with the two QC 4003 controllers, can run alone or in parallel with other generators. You have the choice of either island mode or a power management system. You can also run the generator in parallel with mains, peak shaving, mains power export/import, fixed power and automatic mains failure.
The QAC1100 it is driven by two twin 500kVA Scania engines which can be coupled together as 1000kVA, the purpose for this is predominantly when we have peak loads or low loads. In this case Stanley needed 800kVA through the day to drive their entire plant and at night they only needed 400kVA.
