Kohler Expands KD Series Gen-Set Line

By Mike Brezonick01 November 2017

Kohler has announced the expansion of its KD Series of large industrial diesel generator sets with the rollout of several new units ranging up to 3250 kW (3500kVA).

The KD Series gen-sets initially debuted last October, when Kohler and Kohler-SDMO said the new range, powered by engines developed in partnership with Liebherr, would eventually grow to encompass generators as large as 4000 kW at 60 Hz and 4200 kVA at 50Hz,

“It’s always rewarding to expand a product line in conjunction with strong market response,” said Tom Cromwell, group president-power for Kohler. “Our first wave of KD Series generators really resonated with key influencers in the data center, healthcare, telecommunications and water treatment segments around the world. And we’re looking forward to providing these users — and many others — with additional Kohler-powered options that will deliver a similar mix of durability, fuel efficiency, and the many other benefits that have helped the KD Series to stand out in this competitive global category.”

The newest KD Series diesel industrial generators are powered by two new compact and powerful Kohler V16 diesels. The KD36V16 is a 16-cylinder, 36 L engine that will power the 60 Hz KD1250 and KD1350 as well as the 50 Hz KD1250, KD1400 and KD1500.

The 83 L KD83V16 diesel is a 16-cylinder engine that will drive the 60 Hz KD2800, KD3000 and KD3250, along with the 50 Hz KD3100, KD3300 and KD3500.
