The high range gensets (250 to 2500 kW) from Cummins Power Generation are now preapproved for seismic certification by OSHPD, California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development. Cummins can supply the listed products to healthcare facilities without having to shake-test the actual units being delivered. That means faster installation and commissioning, reducing time and costs.
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.
