    Your partner was sent on an impossible errand. The setup would require a 2 MW electric motor and a generator. Very few companies on this world are capable to design and construct such large monsters.
    Siemens could, Bombardier or GE or Hitachi, but it would have to be custom built and the client should be very 'solvent' before they even start looking at the inquiry.
    This is the kind of power you only find in the railway business.

    ABB could also make it.

    It would be easier to go for a diesel based setup IMO, fire it up when you need 60 HZ.
