Kohler Generators Taking Power to a Higher Output for Water Treatment Facilities

Kohler Power Systems has connected with water treatment facilities all around the world with standby power from its leading Kohler KD series of large diesel industrial generators. These gensets are driven by powerful, technically advanced Kohler engines that are highly customizable to match the specific needs of operators.

Now, Kohler is taking power to a higher output with its latest launch — the KD3500 (3,500 kilowatts) and KD4000 (4,000 kilowatts) generators — which represents the largest standby generator in the marketplace, delivering high power density and performance. 

The units feature a newly developed K175 103-liter, 20-cylinder Kohler diesel engine designed to provide extreme durability and ultimate reliability in a variety of emergency and prime applications. The compact and powerful diesel engines incorporate a modular design with common components, allowing for efficient servicing, reduced spare parts inventory and more streamlined technician training. 

From a generator package design perspective, Kohler’s approach is to also keep many of the components the same in the new models as their counterparts, including the control system, turbochargers, filters and fuel injection system — but just a bit larger to accommodate their higher outputs.

Suitable for wastewater applications

The entire Kohler KD Series is ideally suited for modern wastewater sites. The extensive line-up offers multiple sizes – between 800 and 4,000 kilowatts – and options to ensure suitable performance for the most demanding applications. 

Users can pair the Kohler KD Series generators with the company’s new APM 603 controller for enhanced performance and monitoring features such as (+/0.25%) voltage regulation, dual fuel control, expanded inputs and outputs, a larger 7-inch display, and the ability to parallel as many as eight generator sets. They are backed by a comprehensive three-year warranty, a full complement of genuine Kohler aftermarket parts, and a 24/7 global service and support network.

“Consistent, reliable power is everything for water treatment plants, and our new KD3500 and KD4000 are the most powerful generators we’ve developed to match up the increasing power needs of these mission critical facilities,” says Brad Meissner, product manager for Kohler industrial generators. “Kohler differentiates by providing a highly efficient solution that will deliver power whenever it’s needed — a fully integrated power system designed, built and installed to meet the exact requirements of water treatment facilities.”
