Having a backup generator is an essential part of emergency procedures should your building face a power cut or blackout. If your company is not adequately prepared for such as scenario, it may face both professional and financial ramifications.
The global diesel portable market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.8% between 2014-2019, according to research by Technavio.
As diesel generators become more and more popular, companies face greater trouble specifying the right backup generator for their premises.
Generators are available in various shapes and sizes based on their kVA output and engine size. These qualities are objective, and therefore the correct model varies from person to person.
The more subjective differentiating quality is the kind of fuel each engine runs off. Like a car, the most popular kinds of fuel are petrol and diesel.
Petrol generators often have a wider selection available, and are cheaper to purchase up-front than diesel generators with a low initial price.
However, diesel models are the most fuel efficient and therefore the most cost-effective long term. These generators can operate for longer periods of time and, if maintained correctly are longer lasting.
To ensure your business can operate regardless of any power outages, Tarplett Generator Services supply a range of diesel generations from SDMO T22k to LSA 432 models.
