Director Power Solutions
Kenny Gaynor is Director Power Solutions for Cummins Africa, based in Johannesburg.
His responsibilities include coordinating a wide spectrum of Cummins Sales prospecting and Engineering resources from the initial feasibility considerations to the design, execution and commissioning of Cummins gas power solutions, both natural gas and producer gas.
Kenny has in the past been associated with a number of brands in the power generation business, initially in diesel and heavy fuel plants and he now shares a passion in Africa for smaller distributed gas power plants, operated and maintained under IPP arrangements, a niche that Cummins generator systems are ideally suited. He is equally passionate about opportunities to integrate diesel or gas generation with renewables such as Solar at remote sites with weak or no grids.
His career has spanned a unique combination of Engineering and Finance, having completed a Higher National Diploma in Electrical Engineering as well as a Chartered Accountant (SA), a complimentary mix of skills that stood him in good stead to establish a successful capital goods financing joint venture a few years back.
