Diesel generator with new engine
Generac's diesel industrial generators with Perkins diesel engines have an exhaust hood that mounts to the muffler system and the engines are designed to be more energy efficient.
Generac Industrial Power has released its 400/500/600 kW diesel industrial configured generators with Perkins diesel engines. Generac has standardized the frames and enclosures that house these new engines to bring them into alignment with other Generac Industrial Power products. Generac’s 400 kW generators offer a new Perkins 12.5 L engine, the 500 kW units are powered by the new Perkins 15.2 L engine, and the 600 kW generators contain the Perkins 18.1 L. The highly competitive and dependable 1800 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. The company anticipates expanding this initiative to include its Bi-Fuel and Gemini models in future. The new line of base fuel tanks is now standardized as well. In addition, 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 before and minimizing environmental effects on system operations.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
