Cummins generators played a key role in the Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Coates Hire provided the Cummins machines which were arranged in three generator farms around the MCG and supplied 5 MW.
One of the highlights of the opening ceremony was the flying tram, even Cummins had generators on standby to power the winches in the event of a mains failure.
Coates Hire provided over 200 generators to the various Commonwealth Games venues. Cummins equipment was vital in helping Coates deliver power generation solutions for the games.
Reliability of power supply was critical to ensure no hitches for the global television audience, with Coates enlisting the help of Cummins to provide technical support in the event of any issues.
