Generac’s 400 kW generators now offer a new Perkins 12.5L engine, the 500 kW units are powered by the new Perkins 15.2L engine, and the 600 kW generators contain the Perkins 18.1L. The 1,800 rpm diesel engines from Perkins afford these generators greater levels of efficiency, affordability, ease of maintenance, and all of the other collateral benefits of standardization.Generators

The company anticipates expanding this initiative to include their Bi-Fuel™ and Gemini® models in future. In a further enhancement to efficiency, the 500 kW and 600 kW nodes will offer a preinstalled enclosure from the factory, thus improving installation time. Also new is an aesthetically designed exhaust hood that mounts to the muffler system, reducing sound harshness to a greater degree than ever and minimizes environmental effects on system operations.
