Mackwoods Energy Ltd. has launched high powered DV gensets for both local and export markets. The DV Series has been designed and developed by Kirloskar to deliver reliable high power in the ranges of 320 to 625 KVA. The Kirloskar Green DV engines are environmentally friendly and proven for their durability and reliability and are highly fuel efficient.

With Sri Lanka’s economy moving towards a profound change and the markets looking brighter with various progressive economic development measures taken by the Government, it seemed like the right time to introduce the high powered DV series range of power generators.

The DV Series will be co-branded ‘Mackpower-Kirloskar’ which will significantly expand their product offering to their customers in the higher power category, suited mainly for institutional applications such as manufacturing industries, hotels, defense, CEB grid connectivity and plantations.

The significant and reliable power of the Kirloskar Green DV genset series was proven when it was selected to power the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in New Delhi. The entire opening and closing ceremonies were powered by DV power gensets. To ensure there was no interruption of the functions, the entire event was run off-grid.   

20 generators of 500 KVA, each providing 10 megawatts synchronised together, was used to light up 1,200 moving  lights, 120 space cannons, 16 follow spots, 500,000 watts of sound, 50  kilometres power cables, a 24-tonne giant helium aerostat balloons used as a virtual screen for  laser lights and another 20 gensets synchronised as standby.

The gensets consist of a family of eight, 10 and 12 cylinders, generating power from 400 to 625KVA, with four valve HPCI technology with best in its class in fuel consumption, less emissions conforming to Euro II norms and 100 per cent bio diesel compliant. The Mackpower-Kirloskar high powered DV series launched in Sri Lanka has found an immediate acceptance with several already commencing operations and more being ordered.
