Generac Power Systems' 500-kW natural gas genset is powered by a 25.8-L, 12-cylinder engine that is turbocharged and after-cooled, producing a standby power rating of 500 kW and prime power rating of 450 kW. Ideal for large standby power applications, such as office buildings and mission critical data centers, the unit can be installed as a single-engine generator set or as part of Generac's Modular Power Systems (if generator paralleling is required for increased reliability, redundancy, and flexibility, as well as greater scalability for future growth). Other 500-kW natural gas features include PowerManager digital controls and GenLink remote-monitoring software.
