500 kVA Generators

When it comes to heavy-duty power generators, you need not look any further than our extensive range of diesel generators from Cummins as we provide these units to customers across the UK.

These generators can range in size from around 250 kVA to 550 kVA units for all of the larger requirements that you may need them to fulfil. This means that you will have a much greater choice than in most showrooms.

Our team will be there to support you throughout the entire purchasing process to give you any extra information that you may require to get the perfect generator for your situation.

One of the larger units in our stock is this 500 kVA generator which can be used in all sorts of heavy-duty environments from construction sites to factories and with the proper maintenance should last through many years of consistent use.

How Can You Use a 500 kVA Generator?

When looking to buy a 500 kVA generator, the chances are that you are a senior member of staff at a large facility such as a factory or power plant in the UK which needs some extra power or has been affected by a power outage locally.

Generators of this size are able to be used for just about any power emergency in a facility such as these but may not be able to power the entire station depending on its size and power requirements.

500 kVA generators would be more than enough to power a home however there would be so much power that would be rendered useless due to the fact that your house would simply not need a generator this size and would be perfectly suited for a smaller unit E.G. a 33 kVA generator.

Benefits of Owning a 500 kVA Generator

Alongside the various ways in which these generators can be used, these power generators offer a unique set of benefits that other businesses on the market simply cannot.

One of the major benefits that our 500 kVA generators have over others is that they are fuelled by diesel fuel meaning that they are incredibly fuel efficient considering the sheer size of the fuel tank and the amount of fuel that will be needed.

While the fuel consumption levels may be something that puts many people off buying a unit of this size, diesel reduces the amount of fuel you will be required to buy exponentially when compared to petrol.

Another of the great benefits that these generators are able to boast is that they are a much quieter way for you to generate vast amounts of electricity for your residential or industrial space.


Some of the first things that many people who are in the market for a new heavy-duty generator will look for is the specifications to make sure that the unit will be able to do what they require it to.

Our 500 kVA generators have been measured at 3376mm x 1500mm x 2191mm with a dry weight of 3879 KG meaning that these units will only be able to be installed to larger industrial-size storage units.

These measurements will be important for you to take into consideration before you purchase any of our generators for the obvious reason of aiming to fit them into the space that you have available set aside for your power generator.

Fuel Consumption

As we briefly discussed earlier, one of the main issues with larger generators is that they tend to consume a lot of fuel due to how much power they are required to exert on a daily basis.

This has led to the total fuel consumption levels being at around 93.2 litres per hour which may not be a very plausible number to be able to keep up with on a daily basis which is why some people opt for another unit.

This is one of the key specifications that people should be paying attention to when they purchase a generator as this may mean that you are required to store more fuel than initially anticipated which may not be able to be accommodated.

Key Features of Our 500 kVA Generators

While there are plenty of benefits to state on their own, these generators come packed with a great number of features that make these generators an attractive choice for many in the industry.

Firstly, these generators have a frequency of 50Hz which will prevent your generator from losing a large amount of transmission in the process which assures that you will get your money’s worth.

These generators come with a Cummins QSZ13-G5 engine as standard organised in a lined-up 6-cylinder set-up for optimal performance.
