Baudouin PowerKit engines chosen by Saudi Arabian government to power municipality.￼
February 16, 2022
European manufacturer Moteurs Baudouin report a new commission in Saudi Arabia, while continuing to go from strength to strength in the Middle East with their High Horsepower engine platforms.
Announced this year, the Saudi Arabian government has recently purchased two Baudouin diesel-powered gensets to provide power for their municipal buildings in the town of Al Quoz. The 6M16 PowerKit units have been purchased through Almajd Power, a trusted local OEM partner.
It’s another success in the Middle East for Baudouin, who already has a proven track record in the region, with Baudouin PowerKit engines widely used to support critical applications such as hospitals, datacenters and banks, along with other infrastructures essential to the critical protection market.
Leading the market with HHP engines
To lead the market, Baudouin developed a comprehensive range of high horsepower (HHP) engines with the PowerKit M33 and M55 platforms that span 1150-4125 kVA.
Robust and reliable, the M55 series utilizes premium engineering for exceptional performance, thanks to Baudouin’s unique technologies. It also offers the highest power density in its class, through highly efficient combustion and high-pressure ratio turbochargers.
Overall, these Baudouin PowerKit engines provide exceptional cost efficiency, with extended mean time between overhauls (MTBO). The high-horsepower engines also offer variable duty cycle capabilities and high transient block load capabilities, for uninterrupted power in critical protection situations.
Both the M33 and M55 PowerKit series deliver further cost efficiencies, with best-in-class fuel consumption and are designed with a high tolerance to varying fuel quality. This is how Baudouin clients can expect to stay up and running, even under the challenging conditions that are sometimes demanded by the operating environment in the Middle East.
Strong European quality standards
Over the life of every Baudouin engine, dependability is guaranteed by their strong European quality standards, and access to global service and support. This includes factory-trained partners in the Middle East, who can provide after care and access to genuine spare parts shipped within 24 hours of order.
More than a century of experience in design, manufacturing, support and quality goes into every PowerKit. “You can expect reliability, durability, excellent total cost of ownership and European quality from every Baudouin PowerKit engine,” explains a company spokesman.
Baudouin’s M33 and M55 engines will be showcased at the Middle East Energy show, Stand H2.A10, at the Dubai World Trade Center, UAE. The event runs 7-9 March 2022.
