55kVA Diesel Generator. 3 Phase 400/230 Volt.
Designed by Evopower. Powered by Cummins. Controlled by Deep Sea Electronics.
The Evopower UKC55ECO 55 kVA diesel generator 3-phase diesel generator produces 55 kVA (44 kW) when used in a standby power application or 50 kVA (40 kW) when used in a prime power application. Standby (ESP) and Prime Power (PPR) ratings are defined within ISO8528. The high quality Genpower LK224D brushless alternator is self-excited and includes an AVR (automatic voltage regulator) to maintain the output voltage and prevent voltage drop due to a sudden increase in load. The generator is equipped with 3x 16 Amp 230V sockets and a 3-phase, 63 Amp socket, along with the ability to connect direct to the busbar, all protected by variable, CHiNT RCD’s.
Our heavy duty weatherproof close fit canopy enclosure on the 55kVA diesel generator is rust proof, powder coated and fitted with quality sound attenuation to reduce the noise level to only 70 dB at a 7 metre distance. Stainless steel fittings are used for all door hinges and locks.
Designed in the UK, our ECO series of diesel generators from 55kVA to 550kVA, are much more than an engine and alternator, we only use high quality components in our gensets such as CHiNT 4 pole MCCB breakers, Varta batteries, industrial grade silencers, Cummins engines and DSE (Deep Sea Electronics) control panels along with our custom alternator refined over years of experience building diesel gensets.
Our 55KVA diesel generator, the UKC55ECO model has an integral base mounted fuel tank which holds 102 litres of diesel to power the diesel generator set for up to 14.5hours at 50% load. We offer a long run version of this model which has a 24 hour integral base mounted tank, which you can view here. This standard version will use 12.9L/hour of diesel while on full load (prime rating), down to 7L/hour on half load (prime rating). You can use red diesel to save on running costs without affecting any warranty terms. The easy to access external fuel filler cap is lockable for security and there is a fuel gauge mounted internally which is easy to see and read.
The base mounted diesel tank is integrated within the heavy duty skid, complete with fork holes for easy unloading/moving and hook eyes to help keep the machine stable while transporting or lifting into position.
All generators in the ECO range are powered by Cummins and are fitted with battery charger and coolant heater as standard.

Powered by Cummins 4BTA3.9-G2 Industrial engine.
The Evopower UKC55ECO is powered by a world class Cummins engine, turbo charged with an intercooler and is governed to run at 1500RPM to maintain a 50Hz output from the alternator.
The 4 Cylinder turbo charged 3.9 litre 4BTA3.9-G2 diesel engine manufactured by Cummins uses the highest quality components and Fleetguard filters. The reliability, longevity and fuel economy are why we chose this Cummins engine for the Evopower UKC55ECO generator. The engine oil capacity is 16.5L and we recommend using SAE 15W40 oil, and using a 50/50 mix for the coolant/radiator fluid of 50% water and 50% ethylene glycol (anti-freeze).
The electronic governor regulates the fuel being pumped into the engine, and unlike more traditional mechanical governors it can adjust the fuel intake quickly as load is applied to keep rpm as steady as possible at 1500 revs per minute – which keeps the frequency output stable at 50hz.
Controlled by the DSE 6120 MKIII control panel.
Our entire ECO range of diesel generators use a Deep Sea Electronics 6120 MKIII control panel. Deep Sea Electronics (DSE) have been producing generator control panels, auto transfer switches, battery chargers and more since 1975. The quality of the DSE6120 control panel is evident using the finest materials to produce the panel and all panels are manufactured within the UK.
The control panel has an easy to read LCD screen and comes complete with ATS (auto transfer switch) compatibility as standard. In the event of a power cut, the control panel will start up the generator, wait until it is at the right speed, then it will send a signal directly to your ATS switchgear to switch your load to run from the generator. This gives you peace of mind that in an emergency situation you will not be without power for more than a minute or so.
The control panel then monitors the incoming mains supply, and once it receives a mains input signal it will switch your load back onto mains supply and safely shut down and turn off your generator.
The DSE control panel on the 55kVA diesel generator – UKC55ECO – has a built in USB port, so if you find it easier, you can programme and customise the parameters and modules via a PC once you have downloaded the relevant software from Deep Sea Electronics website. Alternatively you can customise any settings using the buttons on the front of the control panel directly.
The control panel has many built in features to prevent damage to the generator, and will notify you with alerts such as;
- Low oil pressure – which can lead to a lack of lubrication and engine damage,
- High water temperature – which could be a sign that the radiator air flow is blocked or water level is low.
- High or low voltage detected – which could signify a problem with the alternator, AVR, or degrading electrical connections and lead to your equipment being damaged.
- High or low frequency or engine over/underspeed – which could signify an issue with the fuel regulation/governor and leads to unstable frequency output.
- There are also built in features such as start/stop issues and more.
