The right diesel generator can have a big impact on performance, reliability, serviceability and the residual value of your asset.
Do you want it as a back-up in case of emergencies? Or as the primary source of power? How mobile do you need your generator to be, or can it be fixed in one place?
Once you have answered these questions about your needs for a diesel generator, there are three different types for you to investigate; standby, stationary and portable.
A standby generator application is used when a mains power already exists and a generator is required to act only as back-up if there is a blackout. Subsequently, the generator will usually only run a handful of hours per year, if at all.
A stationary generator is used when the generator is the primary source of power and the generator will remain in one location for most of its life.
A portable generator is used when the generator is the sole source of power but it will also be moved from site to site on a regular basis.
Light, medium or heavy usage will impact the size and fuel efficiency of the diesel generator that you require.
