GPS1500 (1200kW)


The GPS1500 is ideal for facilities that require high quality and highly reliable standby (or emergency) power generation and a capacity from 1000 kW to 1200 kW.  The GPS stand-by gas turbine is designed for reliable emergency back up power for data centers, hospitals (non-life safety loads), prisons and other mission critical facilities.


A Closer Look

The GPS units start and accept full power in 30 to 40 seconds. The GPS units are approximately 50% the weight and footprint of a comparably sized diesel engine generator, so they are well suited for installation on rooftops or mezzanines, saving valuable real estate for other purposes.  The GPS unit can operate on natural gas, kerosene and diesel fuel, and can switch automatically between fuels during operation at 100% power output.
