However, even the best gensets can fail due to any of the following factors:

  • An ability to start after long shutdowns – batteries will eventually lose their ability to hold enough charge to crank the engine. IPU can help by removing the need for a battery and supplying a start system that can hold it’s energy almost indefinitely.
  • Having clean fuel – under normal storage conditions diesel fuel can be expected to stay in a usable condition for 6-12 months. After which it begins to suffer from contamination from three main sources: water, microbial growth and solid particulates. This can block fuel filters, damage fuel injectors and cause complete engine failure. IPU has a range of solutions that can remove fuel contamination and keep your diesel at EN 590 specifications.
