At Newtech, we specialize in turnkey solutions for critical infrastructure, including diesel generator systems. We understand the critical role that diesel generators play in ensuring the reliability and availability of power in critical infrastructure settings. That’s why we offer turnkey solutions for diesel generator systems, from assessment and consultancy to equipment sourcing and procurement, installation, testing, and maintenance.
What is a diesel generator?
A diesel generator is a combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator that generates electrical energy. Diesel generators are commonly used in places without connection to a power grid or as an emergency power supply if the grid fails. They are made up of a diesel engine and an alternator to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Why is it important for data centers and critical environments?
A well-built, industrial quality diesel generator has numerous benefits, including:
Diesel generators are known for their durability and reliability, making them an ideal choice for backup power in critical environments.
Diesel generators are more fuel-efficient than other types of backup power systems, which means they can provide power for extended periods of time without needing to refuel.
Diesel generator systems can be designed to fit the specific needs of your critical infrastructure, whether you need a small system for a single building or a large system for an entire campus.
Diesel generators are built to withstand harsh environments and heavy use, ensuring that they will continue to function even in the toughest conditions.
Recent advancements in diesel engine technology have significantly reduced emissions, making diesel generators a more environmentally friendly option than they once were.
How can we help?
These different types of diesel generators can be customized and configured to meet the specific power needs of a data center, taking into account factors such as the size of the facility, the criticality of the equipment being powered, and the length of time the generator will need to provide backup power.
At Newtech, we offer a range of diesel generator systems to meet the needs of our clients. Some common types of diesel generators for data centers include:
Also known as emergency generators, standby generators are designed to provide backup power in the event of an outage. They are typically used in critical infrastructure settings such as data centers, hospitals, and other facilities where uninterrupted power is essential.
Continuous generators are designed to provide power continuously, rather than just during an outage. They are typically used in environments where a reliable power source is essential, such as data centers.
Prime power generators:
Prime power generators are designed to provide primary power in off-grid settings or in locations where the grid power is unreliable or unavailable. They are typically used in remote locations where a reliable power source is essential.
Mobile generators are designed for use in temporary settings such as construction sites or outdoor events. They can be easily transported and set up, making them a convenient option for short-term power needs.
Hybrid generators are designed to operate on both diesel and other fuels, such as natural gas or propane. They can be more fuel-efficient and cost-effective than traditional diesel generators.
What should businesses consider when choosing diesel generators?
There are several factors to consider when choosing diesel generators for your critical environment, including:
The power output of the diesel generator system should match the power needs of your critical infrastructure. It’s essential to ensure that the generator can provide enough power to keep all necessary equipment running during an outage.
Reliability is critical when it comes to a diesel generator system. You need a generator that will start when needed and continue to run without interruption until power is restored.
Fuel efficiency is an important consideration, as it affects both the cost and the runtime of the generator. A diesel generator that is fuel-efficient will be able to run for a longer time on a single tank of fuel, reducing the need for frequent refueling.
All diesel generator systems require regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance. However, different systems may require different levels of maintenance, which can affect the overall cost and reliability of the generator.
Budget is also a key consideration when choosing a diesel generator system. Diesel generators can vary significantly in price, so it’s essential to choose a system that fits within your budget while still meeting your power needs and other requirements.
