Generac Mobile Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of mobile backup power generators, heaters and light towers, unveiled the new MGG450 from Generac Magnum. Unique to the industry and ideal for end-users, the unit provides 450kVa of power and can automatically adapt* and operate full-loaded with no loss of power** on three distinct fuel sources: natural gas, wellhead gas, or liquid propane.

The mobile power performance of the MGG450 is the best-in-class in power density with a true 360kW prime power rating delivering 16.4kW/L, making it ideal for powering large equipment in remote field locations while design integrations ensure continuous operation in extreme conditions. Powering the MGG450 is a continuous-duty 21.9L Generac engine designed with numerous advancements, including an advanced fuel control system that minimizes fuel deration, a 1,500-hour service interval that reduces cost of operation; and knock sensors on each cylinder for long engine life with maximum power output.

“We listened to the needs of end-users and engineered a unit that addresses the need to better manage site costs while still providing the quality you expect from Generac,” says Russ Minick, executive vice president of NAM sales for Generac Power Systems. “Not only does the new MGG450 provide peak performance in the midst of extreme conditions, but it also integrates advanced technologies like fuel flexibility that automatically adjusts to LP, NG or wellhead gas. As a result, end-users minimize downtime with equipment that quickly adapts to spontaneous changes to their fuel sources.”

The demand for larger, more technologically advanced mobile products continues to grow as customers assess the Total Cost of Ownership. Rapidly changing field environments necessitate products that hold up to the harsh demands associated with oil fields and gas production, and are also designed to be flexible, smart and with longer service intervals to save money and reduce costly downtime.

Other MGG450 features include:

  • 1,500-hour service interval; 40,000-hour major service interval
  • Parallel/load-share ready
  • Optional variable pitch fan that auto-adjusts for cooling/heating needs, and reduced fuel consumption
  • Safety features include >125% fluid containment, fuel leak sensors, lock-outs
  • UL2200 and CSA22.2 rated and fuel system is CSA B149 Compliant
