Application: Emergency Generator Set
Engine: Cummins S3.8
IPU were awarded the contract to start an emergency generator on the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading vessel, The Kamelia.
The engine was a Cummins S3.8 which had no second start pocket. This had to be designed and manufactured by the client.
The starting system was designed to provide 30 seconds cranking capacity in a hazardous area. Due to space constraints, the start system was designed to fit on the external end of the container.
The system is automatically recharged with an electric motor driven recharge pump.
