Kohler expanded its KD Series line of industrial generators with two new models, KD700 and KD750 for 60-hz markets. These generators feature a new KOHLER 18L advanced diesel engine (KD18L06) that can also run on hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) as a renewable fuel source.

These new models join a proven series of gensets that continues to provide the highest power density and best fuel consumption at more nodes than competitors between 700 and 4,000 kW, offering cost savings to users. The new KD units are designed to power mission critical applications, including airports, hospitals, and health care facilities, water treatment plants, and mid-sized data centers.

The KD700 and KD750 join Kohler’s industrial generators that are engineered to utilize HVO fuel. HVO provides a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to conventional diesel and biofuels. No adaptation is needed and both HVO and diesel can be mixed together. HVO is also highly stable, with no sensitivity to oxidation, so it can be stored long term. It enables to offset carbon emission by up to 90% by using renewable waste products.

Kohler’s KD Series has proven performance excellence, designed to deliver extreme durability and ultimate reliability in a variety of emergency and prime applications. KD Series generators are engineered to last, with better fuel economy and a small footprint. When paired with Kohler’s global sales and support network the KD Series lineup provides a solution that secures customers’ critical operations.
