Cummins to power housing complex in Iraq
Modern Iraq Company for Trading Agencies (MICTA) will install the system in a generator room it helped design. It consists of four Cummins Power Generation C550D5e enclosed generator sets with QSX15-G8 engines, control and power cabling, low-voltage switchgear and synchronization board, a Digital Master Control DMC1000 control system, and fuel tanks.
The design is meant to meet the 1.6 megawatt electricity demand of the 200-unit apartment complex in addition to requirements for noise level and air quality. The overall development project will be managed and built by Dream Land Company, and features eight separate buildings.
Cummins was chosen as the supplier for the electrical system based on the company's previous collaborations with Dream Land Company.
Sulaymaniyah is a city of more than 364,000 people in Iraqi Kurdistan, about four and a half hours northeast of Baghdad.
