Power Generation

Whether you use a generator for prime or standby power, you need it to be reliable. However, a number of factors can cause your engines to suffer damage or completely stop. IPU has a range of products that can help improve your engines reliability to ensure you always have easy access to power:

Diesel powered gensets are often used to provide prime or standby power for:

  • Military sites
  • Building site
  • Remote holiday sites
  • Off grid communities

However the reliability and dependability of your remote power source could be affected by:

  • Cold temperatures – cold temperatures could cause your generator to start slowly, affecting it’s ability to carry the full load. Hotstart engine heaters pre-heat your engines, making them easier and quicker to start, delivering full power quickly and reducing engine wear, environmental emissions and fuel consumption.
  • Availability of diesel – a regular supply of diesel may not always be available. IPU has a range of products that can help you move to hybrid power generation, reducing your reliance on the fuel.
  • 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.
  • Having good lubrication – according to Noria (the industry body that promotes better lubrication practises), 80% of engine failures can be attributed to contaminated oils. IPU has real-time monitoring packages and bypass filters that can give a voice to your oil and extend it’s life by up to four times.
