“We are pleased to be recognized by specifying engineers with their endorsement of our KG gas generators and viewing us as leaders in power generation technology,” said Amy Haese, associate product manager for KOHLER.

The KOHLER KG Series gaseous-powered generators has been recognized as a 2020 Product of the Year by readers of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. The publication’s 16th annual Product of the Year competition identifies the best new products launched between Jan. 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020 in 11 key industrial categories and then invites its professional readership to vote for their favorites.

This year, the KOHLER KG Series gas generators at 80kW, 100kW and 125kW Series was recognized with a Silver Product of the Year Award in the Power Systems & Equipment category. The recognition is Kohler’s second award in three years from Consulting-Specifying Engineer after winning gold for the KD Series generator line in 2018.

“We are pleased to be recognized by specifying engineers with their endorsement of our KG gas generators and viewing us as leaders in power generation technology,” said Amy Haese, associate product manager for KOHLER. “Our gas generators are suited for a wide array of applications and, because they’re fully-integrated units, KOHLER provides one-source responsibility for the generating system and accessories, including fully trained technicians and easy access to our genuine aftermarket parts.”

The gaseous-powered industrial generators feature the company’s 6.2-liter V8 turbocharged engines that are optimized for generator applications to provide a durable, high-performance engine. The generators provide flexibility to select the appropriate gas fuel source (natural gas, propane, and dual fuel) with Kohler’s patented dual fuel technology. Each of the KG generators feature KOHLER Fast Response excitation systems that deliver excellent voltage response and short-circuit capability using permanent magnet-excited alternators.

Kohler is the only generator manufacturer to offer hurricane-rated enclosures as standard directly from the factory. These enclosures are durable aluminum enclosures that meet the most stringent and widely recognized testing standards (TAS) within the Florida Building Code from wind load and projectile impact.
The KOHLER KG80, KG100 and KG125 KG generators are suited for applications like commercial, municipal buildings, educations, housing, health care and nursing homes.
