Kohler’s lineup of standby and prime power industrial generators come in an extensive range of gas and diesel-fueled models: from 8.5 kW to 4 MW. They are rated to operate at 50 or 60 hertz. A full complement of accessories is available for all models to meet most any application: Weather protective and sound-attenuated housings, critical silences, block heaters, and sub-base fuel tanks.
Built for the most critical jobs on earth.
KOHLER® diesel generators range from 15 to 4000 kW and are available EPA-certified. There is no job too small, no building too big. You can customize KOHLER diesel generators any way you like with the large variety of accessories. Our generators power up in 10 seconds or less and deliver quality power during voltage and frequency changes. KOHLER’s ease of installation is unmatched — large stub-up areas; easy access to fuel, load and exhaust locations. Our EPA emission certified, industrial grade engines meet the latest emissions requirements. High-ambient cooling means, designed to meet extreme operating conditions. KOHLER PMG Alternators provide advanced short-circuit capability and meet NEMA MG 1, IEEE and ANSI standards. KOHLER decision-making controls available with a variety of controls–basic, advanced and paralleling.
Custom made to meet your needs
Unlike most generator models, every KOHLER generator is designed to work precisely for standby, prime or continuous applications. So you know you’re getting the right power and the right power rating—and enjoying huge cost savings along the way. To simplify the installation process — almost every model is available EPA-certified to meet operational requirements on pipeline natural gas. There’s no need to certify or recertify. KOHLER generators meet tough industry testing and quality standards (UL, CSA, IBC, NFPA). Our gas generators accept full load to keep you up and running. Our 1800-rpm engines run quietly and efficiently to extend generator life and provide significant fuel savings. KOHLER gas generator are available EPA-certified, ECM controlled and designed to meet the latest spark-ignited emission requirements.
Automatic Transfer Switches
KOHLER® transfer switches bridge the gap between loss of utility and standby power. Featuring Kohler designed and built MPAC® controllers, they’re factory-tested to ensure transfer of power from the utility to the generator and back again.
Reduce the racket, endure the weather.
If you want to keep the weather out and the noise in, there’s really only one way to go. KOHLER® enclosures are bolstered by industrial steel or heavy duty aluminum and acoustic insulation to protect your investment and keep the noise down. In addition, we coat every unit with Power Armor™ (a textured industrial finish) for heavy-duty durability in harsh conditions. UL 2200-listed and IBC-certified packages are available. Multiple weather/sound enclosure options are available on 10- to 3250-kW generators. Hinged doors, door handles and door holders provide security, protection and easy access for service. Multiple personnel doors and removable panels offer easy access to generator control, fuel fill, fuel gauge, oil fill and battery. In addition, KOHLER eFrame enclosures, designed to house Kohler Power’s largest 2.0 through 4 MW KD Series gen-sets, have been engineered to meet the specific requirements of mission-critical applications – primarily data centers.
