Prepare for Disaster with an Industrial Generator

Buy the perfect generator


If your organisation and its essential operations are dependent on having a continuous power source, then an unexpected outage can potentially be a catastrophe. From the inconvenience and disruption of unplanned downtime, through to the potential financial and reputational losses associated with such an event, it makes sense to take the right steps to avoid such a scenario. By investing in an industrial generator, you can relax, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that should the worst happen, your business will be able to carry on operating.

Why Buy an Industrial Generator?

When you have an industrial generator on your premises, you can avoid the financial costs and disruption caused by a loss of power. By investing in a generator of your own, you can also eliminate the stress and time involved in sourcing and then setting up a hired generator (often a significant challenge if the power issue is not localised to your premises).

Develop an Emergency Power Plan

The best way to start your disaster preparation is to create an emergency power plan. This involves a careful assessment of your business’s power needs so that you have a clear idea as to exactly how much emergency energy your industrial generator will need to produce. Consider whether you would need all of your organisation’s premises to be powered during an outage, or only a selection of critical loads. It could well be that certain areas could manage without power for some time, thereby saving you money, but bear in mind, too, that power outages can run into a period of several days, depending on their cause (think flooding or fires, for example).

Investing In an Industrial Generator

Whether you ultimately choose to purchase or rent an industrial generator, you should also think carefully about where it is to be located. Safety should, of course, be a primary consideration, so be sure to set up your generator in a low traffic area away from public access. You can use cable ramps to reduce the risk of people tripping on any wiring that could traverse floor spaces, but it’s smarter to simply keep it away from any pathways. You should also ensure that the spot you choose is secure in order to protect against the threat of theft or malicious damage.

Think about where you will store the fuel needed to power your generator, too, as well as any spare UPS battery units you purchase. This should be in an area free from potentially damaging temperature fluctuations, damp, fumes, or dust.

Factor in Generator Specialist Maintenance

If you want to get the very best value from your investment in your industrial generator, then you need to begin a routine of generator specialist maintenance straight away. This may involve scheduling regular conductance, impedance, and load bank tests, through to opting for an advanced continuous monitoring system. This uses intelligent sensors to keep you informed of your generator’s condition. In any event, looking after your generator will optimise its life span and efficiency. Doing so will ensure that your generator is ready to spring into action to power your business, just when you need it to.
