MICTA supplies Cummins gensets in Iraq
Four generator sets used for water pumping stations at Ifraz and Mar Uda.
Modern Iraq Company for Trading Agencies (MICTA), the Cummins Power Generation distributor for Iraq, has provided two standby power systems in the northeastern city of Erbil.
MICTA has supplied, installed and commissioned four enclosed generator sets for two of the Erbil Water Directorate’s water pumping stations at Ifraz and Mar Uda.
Since placing its first order in 2004, the Erbil Water Directorate has become a regular customer for MICTA and Cummins Power Generation, recognizing the reliability and efficiency of Cummins manufacturing and support.
To meet each pumping station’s total power requirement of 6.8 MW including grid supply, MICTA has deployed four 3.3 kV enclosed generator sets – two C2250 D5 and two C2000 D5 models with QSK60-G3 and QSK60-G4 Cummins engines.
MICTA supplied the generator sets complete with PowerCommand® PCC3201P controls, medium-voltage switchgear, low-voltage synchronization board, control and power cabling, and fuel tanks.
The system at each site is designed to operate automatically, with its generator sets configured to run in parallel. Noise levels and air quality were important criteria for the project, so the generator sets are situated inside a specially designed room.
MICTA acted as both mechanical and electrical contractor, while the lead contractor for the project was Turkey’s SFTA Group.
