Integrated Continuous Power Supply Delivered to High-Altitude Cement Plant in Ecuador

Cummins global footprint came to light in the UCEM Chimborazo project, with the sale made by Cummins Spain and installation and commissioning carried out in Ecuador.
Cummins global footprint came to light in the UCEM Chimborazo project, with the sale made by Cummins Spain and installation and commissioning carried out in Ecuador.

UCEM Chimborazo is the second largest cement plant in Ecuador, currently producing around 1.6m tonnes of cement annually. When it came to fail-safe power supply for its new clinker line, Cummins was awarded the bid for this emergency power supply contract. 

With two existing utilities feeding all loads, a third option capable of managing all critical loads in an emergency situation was required. It was also vital that any new power supply connects to the existing hydroelectric plant to optimize capabilities.

Cummins global footprint came to light in this project, with the sale made by Cummins Spain and installation and commissioning carried out in Ecuador. Installation of the Cummins 1250DQGAE generator set was a challenge due to the cement plant’s location more than 3,000 m above sea level, but Cummins’ expertise and extensive experience overcame the environmental obstacles. The generator set was housed in an 82 dB(A) soundproof container, and the Cummins technical team countered the dry environment with a customized solution to protect the equipment and ensure adequate airflow.

Power Station in Oman Upgrades with Cummins Prime Power

The Cummins prime power systems are using their time-tested paralleling and load share controls to meet the local power needs in Al Wusta Governorate, Oman.
The Cummins prime power systems are using their time-tested paralleling and load share controls to meet the local power needs in Al Wusta Governorate, Oman.

In rural parts of Oman where there is no connection to the grid, villages rely entirely on the local power station, where Cummins generator sets run 24/7 in continuous operation. During winter, the load on the plant is minimal as there is less cooling required. However, with summer approaching, the load will increase and power requirement will thus be critical. 

With a need to upgrade the existing Dhafrat Power Station in Al Wusta Governorate, which covers the central region of Oman, the main contractor for the project, M/s. Global Chemical and Maintenance LLC, turned to Cummins and its authorized distributor, Universal Engineering Services (UES). UES has supplied around 120 Cummins generators to this customer, with current installed prime power capacity at 80 MW.

Cummins generators provide prime power for rural village in Oman.The Cummins prime power systems – 3 x C1400D5 units rated at 1 MW and 1 x C1100D5 unit rated at 500 kW – are using their time-tested paralleling and load share controls to meet the local power needs of the village without any interruption, providing 3.5 MW of total power output. The 1 MW units were engineered to order with medium-voltage alternators as the requirement called for an 11,000-volt unit, and work together in parallel, while the 500 kW unit is synchronized using a step-up transformer. The cooling system requirement meets harsh conditions of ambient temperature of 55°C and nearly 100% humidity, and noise levels of 85 dBA at 1 m are also met by the Cummins solution.

Cummins global footprint and local support gave the customer access to one of the most capable networks in the industry for their critical infrastructure upgrade – from product capability and market-competitive pricing through a robust supply chain and manufacturing process, to confidence in the technical support capability and aftermarket support. Built-in paralleling and load share controls were a key advantage compared to other generator suppliers, which usually offer a separate standalone paralleling and load share control.

The Importance of Load Evaluation in Specifying Textile Company's Exact Needs

Cummins distributor Orient Energy Systems evaluated the load for Ahmad Jamal Textile Mills, providing an expert recommendation of the power system required.
Cummins distributor Orient Energy Systems evaluated the load for Ahmad Jamal Textile Mills, providing an expert recommendation of the power system required.

A good partner can provide a generator set to a customer. A great partner understands the exact needs of the customer and provides the solution to meet those exact needs, along with 24/7 support.

When Cummins authorized distributor Orient Energy Systems (OES) was approached by a new customer, Ahmad Jamal Textile Mills, the customer came with a requirement of 50 kVA for their home’s power needs and 200 kVA for their manufacturing unit. After meeting with the customer, OES brought in their in-house expert to evaluate the load. The application and project engineer determined that the load in fact required 100 kVA of power for the house and 160 kVA for the manufacturing operations.

OES supplied and installed 1 x Cummins C110D5 generator set and 1 x Cummins C175D5B generator set at the Ahmad Jamal Textile Mills owner’s home and business in Faisalabad, Pakistan, providing prime power to keep the business and household operating at all times. A custom-built enclosure from OES fulfilled noise level requirements of 80-85 dB(A).

On-time delivery was a key requirement of the customer, and this was met by OES and Cummins with timely delivery at the site as per the committed time line. The customer was afforded extra value and peace of mind through Cummins extended warranty program.

“Backup power is considered the backbone of any business globally,” said Haider Khan, Sales Executive with OES. “Efficient and up-to-date technologies in power generation will be the cause of satisfaction for the customer, and Cummins is doing some great R&D in this field. Strong customer service and understanding the power needs of the customer led us to a successful project with Ahmad Jamal.”
