The new gensets offer lower emission, operating costs and sound level.
Cooper Corporation is amongst the first in the industry to get an approval from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) to develop a series of gas generator sets (gensets) ranging from 10 KVA to 25 KVA. These are certified to be compliant with the new mass emission norms being administered by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in India. The amended rules mandate all manufacturers, importers or assemblers of generator sets in India to comply with the cleaner emission standards. With the revised CPCB's norms, Cooper Corporation is all set to deliver gensets in the natural gas/LPG variants along with the existing portfolio of diesel gensets which comply with the new guidelines.
Cooper Corporation in the coming months will be launching ARAI certified gas engines powering generators up to 250 KVA. These engines are specially designed for use with natural gas/LPG as against other retrofit options. Besides substantially lower emissions, these gensets offer the benefit of lower operating costs and significantly lower sound level. These gensets come as a boon to the power-starved consumers, especially in the Delhi/NCR belt, which are reeling under severe air pollution.
Commenting on the deed, Farrokh N Cooper, Chairman and Managing Director, Cooper Corporation said, 'We strongly believe that CPCB emission norms was a breakthrough legislation, enabling Indian engines to contribute to the 'Clean Power' movement in India and to compete with those in Europe and America. It is a very proud moment for us to be the first in the industry to be ready with this range of gas gensets too.'
