Design:

We offer the customer a full on site survey to determine the generator size, location, exhaust  and air inlet routes, fuel storage requirements/fuel piping routes and power distribution. On completion of consultation and final agreement of requirements a detailed quotation is prepared and passed to the client.

Installation:

On delivery the generator equipment will be positioned by the installation team. They will install and connect fuel and exhaust pipe work, control panels and changeover panels. The equipment will then go through a series of checks and tests to ensure all work carried out meets the customers, manufacturers and any statutory requirements.

Commission:

Once the generator is installed, and with functional checks completed, the team will load bank test the equipment to its full capability (manufacturer’s specifications). On completion of proving the unit, including witness testing of the system in standby operation (site load), a report will be handed over to the client along with equipment manuals, drawings and any other supporting documentation.

Load Banking:

Wet stacking is a condition where unburned fuel and carbon accumulate on post combustion internal engine parts (pistons, cylinders & exhaust valves) and the entire exhaust system including the turbocharger. It comes from running a diesel engine at only a small percentage of its rated capacity and not allowing it to completely burn-off all of the fuel. The incomplete combustion also adds an equal amount of carbon as well. It is visually detected by the appearance of black ooze around exhaust pipe connections and around the turbocharger. Also, continuous black exhaust from the stack when under a constant load is also an indication that all the fuel is not being fully burned and coking and wet stacking may be taking place.

 

The effects of wet stacking range from the build-up of carbon on your valves, valve guides and the turbo impeller causing hot spots or the burning and ultimate premature failure of these components, to unburned diesel fuel diluting the engine lubricating oil by washing down the cylinder walls and causing premature wearing and failure of rings or the engine bearings.

Preventative Maintenance:

We offer a range of customized Preventative Maintenance (PM) programs to our customers. Frequently, standby generator systems remain idle for long periods. Like any other equipment, generator systems should be periodically checked and undergo routine maintenance to ensure they are fully operational when required.

 

During the middle of a power outage is not the time to discover your generator system has problems. A tailored PM program to meet your needs will greatly reduce the chance of your system failing when it has to perform.

The bottom line is that all UPS equipment will fail if not serviced properly. This makes the service contract more cost effective than the human and hardware resource costs of dealing with an outage. The value of a service contract is further magnified when you realise you run the risk of waiting as long as two weeks for a replacement device from a vendor (even if it is still under vendor warranty) or having to repair/replace the device if it is not.
