Cummins Power Generation Earns OSHPD Preapproval for Seismic Certification in California

First manufacturer to have complete emergency power system — generator sets, transfer switches, controls — pre-approved by state agency


Cummins Power Generation’s high range generator sets have been added to the list of products meeting the rigorous standards for pre-approved seismic certification by OSHPD, California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development.

The company's low range generator sets, from 10 kW – 230 kW, were pre-approved earlier this year, along with PowerCommand automatic transfer switches and digital master controllers (click here for the complete list of approved products). The high-range generator sets, from 250 kW – 2,500 kW, are now also preapproved, making Cummins Power Generation the first company with the ability to supply an entire preapproved emergency power system of any size for hospitals in California. Cummins Power Generation can supply the listed products to healthcare facilities without having to shake-test the actual units being delivered.

The generator pre-approval covers configurations with a generator set only, generator and sub-base fuel tank, and generator with fuel tank and enclosure.
