While routine maintenance and repairs are essential for addressing immediate issues, taking a proactive approach to generator health can significantly extend their lifespan and optimise performance. One powerful tool in achieving this is a Generator Lifecycle Survey.
With the changes to red diesel regulations that came into effect in 2022, businesses have been compelled to explore alternative fuels for their power generators. Traditional diesel fuel, once the go-to choice for generators, is now facing competition from emerging alternatives such as Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), Gas to Liquid (GTL), and Solar/Battery technologies.
When it comes to power generation, ensuring the reliability and efficiency of backup systems is crucial, and even more so for critical applications and industries. While generators themselves can last for decades with proper maintenance, the control systems that govern their operation can become outdated and unreliable over time.
The harsher winter weather of recent years has led to higher electricity bills and more frequent power outages. Cold weather can make it especially challenging for generators to start and perform if the equipment is not maintained correctly.
