Applications & Use Cases

Industrial Power Pland (IPP)

QAC 1450 TwinPower

Many Industrial Power Plants (IPP) have a need for power during times of shutdown, mainteance and emergency. A stable power source can make all the difference, and with a megawatt of power, this generator is always reliable.

Mining / Construction

Mining / Construction TwinPower

In mining fields, diesel has a lower volatility rate than gasoline, making it a safer alternative to gasoline. Our QAC 1500 megawatt generator always the number one option when working with mining materials such as coal, iron, or precious metals since it’s portable and can be used in remote areas with extreme conditions.

Oil & Gas / Marine / Peak Shaving

Oil and Gas Marine

Out in the ocean on an oil rig or in certain marine applications, you have little or no access to grid power. Whether you're looking to have backup power or looking at peak shaving our megawatt generator can provide a stable power supply. Level out your power supply with our diesel generator. Also the smallest footprint makes it perfect for tight footprints.
