Taylor Power Systems new TR1000 is a container-based portable generator focused on the rental industry.
The TR1000 is powered by twin 500 kW tier 4 final Volvo Penta engines. The two engines are paralleled for the total 1000 kW but can be separated for redundant 500 kW use. When operated in parallel, automatic start and stop based on programmable load demand as well as balanced service times. This reduces fuel usage and helps extend maintenance intervals when building load demand can be carried by a single generator. Furthermore, the TR1000 can operate as an automatic standby unit or as prime power.
Each generator has a dedicated 1600A Square D breaker and voltage selector switch for 480 or 208 operation, which is important for overcurrent protection. Additionally, it contains dual voltage 480V AC and 208V AC with automatic voltage trimming when the selector switch position is changed. Each generator has a DSE 8610 panel, and both can be operated externally via the DSE 8004 remote panel.
The TR1000 generators and accompanying components are positioned inside a 40-foot-high cube container that is mounted to a triple-axle trailer. The TR1000 is equipped with a Marathon 573RSL4033 alternator.
Telematics is an additional option which provides users with the ability to check unit status, fault status, location, as well as start or stop the unit using a mobile device. The unit can also connect with building network using an ethernet connection for remote monitoring/control.
“The TR1000 will offer rental customers and rental companies the latest tier 4 final engine technology along with other design features specific to rental generators. This model was designed and developed by our Taylor Power engineering team based on our 34 years of generator manufacturing experience along with lessons learned from having our own rental fleet,” said Steve Duke, general manager of Taylor Power Systems.
The TR1000 can be utilized by equipment rental companies, first responders, hospitals, manufacturing facilities, and essentially any business that needs a considerable volume of immediate power.
