At Lance Power, we understand the critical role uninterrupted power plays in today’s industrial landscape. Power outages, even brief ones, can disrupt production lines, damage sensitive equipment and lead to significant financial losses. An industrial diesel generator set (genset) serves as your dependable backup power source, seamlessly taking over when the grid falters, ensuring power continuity for your critical operations.

However, the true value of a diesel generator lies not just in its capacity but also in the proper installation of a diesel generator set. A meticulously planned and executed installation guarantees optimal performance, safety and longevity of your backup power solution.

Planning the Perfect Industrial Diesel Generator Installation

Here at Lance Power, we take a comprehensive approach to industrial diesel generator installation. Our team of experienced engineers works closely with you to understand your specific power requirements and facility layout. This collaborative approach ensures a customised solution that integrates seamlessly with your existing infrastructure.

Key considerations during the planning phase include:

Power Needs Assessment: We meticulously analyse your current and anticipated power consumption patterns. This data forms the basis for selecting a generator set with the appropriate capacity (measured in kilowatts, kVA) to meet your peak and sustained power demands.

Site Selection: Choosing the optimal location for your generator is crucial. It should be situated on a level, well-drained concrete pad to minimise vibration and ensure equipment stability. Local regulations and safety codes regarding generator placement and fuel storage will also be factored into the equation.

Ventilation and Exhaust Management: Diesel generators produce heat and exhaust fumes. Proper ventilation is paramount to prevent harmful gas build-up and maintain a safe working environment. We may recommend installing the generator outdoors in a designated enclosure with a well-designed exhaust system that directs fumes away from personnel and buildings.

Fuel Storage and Delivery: Continuous operation hinges on a readily available fuel supply. We’ll assist you in determining the most suitable fuel storage solution, whether it’s on-site tanks or a reliable fuel delivery system.

Transfer Switch and Electrical Integration: The transfer switch plays a pivotal role in automatically switching your facility to generator power during an outage and back to the grid when power is restored. Our team ensures proper integration of the transfer switch and the generator set with your existing electrical infrastructure.

Safety at the Forefront: Industrial Diesel Generator Installation Best Practices

Safety is paramount throughout the installation process. Our certified technicians adhere to the strictest safety protocols to ensure a hazard-free environment. Some key safety measures include:

  • Compliance with Regulations: All installations comply with relevant local and national building and electrical codes.
  • Fuel System Safety: Fuel lines and storage tanks are meticulously installed to prevent leaks and spills.
  • Electrical Safety: All wiring and connections are meticulously checked and double-checked to eliminate electrical hazards.
  • Grounding and Earthing: Proper grounding practices are followed to prevent electrical shock and equipment damage.
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detection: Installing carbon monoxide alarms near the generator is crucial to warn of potential CO build-up.

Beyond Installation: Ongoing Maintenance and Support

A well-maintained generator is a reliable generator. At Lance Power, we offer comprehensive maintenance plans tailored to your specific generator set. Regular maintenance ensures optimal performance, extends equipment lifespan, and minimises the risk of unexpected breakdowns. Our team is also readily available to provide ongoing support and troubleshooting assistance, ensuring your backup power solution remains in peak condition.
