Diesel genset engine
Cummins Power Generation has designed a series to provide critical power protection for facilities requiring high-output gensets.
The C3000 Series generator set by Cummins Power Generation offers up to 3.5 MW. For multiple-set applications, the output of the C3000 Series will increase power installation efficiency and realize higher economies of scale. The C3000 Series genset is designed to provide critical power protection for facilities requiring high-output gensets, such as data centers, hospitals, and utilities. In developing countries, the C3000 Series meets the need for high-output gensets to support gaps in the power grid infrastructure. Cummins’ Selective Catalytic Reduction after-treatment system is intended to replace the exhaust muffler on the genset, offering a proven and highly flexible packaging solution.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
