Fuelling solutions for generators that power buildings are stored in specified fuel tanks. A host of factors need to be considered when selecting and installing the appropriate generator fuel tank, which Fuelchief can assist with.
Fuel storage solutions for generator systems are often dismissed as insignificant, however need to be carefully considered during design to maximise the benefits of having a reliable and resilient system that ensures continues power as and when it is critically needed. Fuelchief are passionate about the various factors at play and can assist with arriving at the best compliant solution for your project.
There are many buildings and infrastructure projects relying on prime or standby power sources such as diesel generators. In these situations, generators supply auxiliary electric power during outages of power supply from the local electricity companies, or as a prime source of power to complement a shortage or absence of available electricity, or even as a cost-saving measure. Important industries such as healthcare, data centres, government and defence need to ensure the resiliency of their systems, and Fuelchief understands that. Where loss of power would be a disaster during the function of the facility, the availability of clean fuel becomes an ultra-critical factor in the start-up and restoration of power. At Fuelchief, we are committed to partnering with all stakeholders to ensure high level redundancy, government global compliance, lifetime value and future proofing is factored in, with the best possible solution arrived at for your project. We specialise in a variety of fuel storage tanks and maintenance systems for these markets. As manufacturers we have the ability and experience to be a key part of your investment in power generation project.
Reliable power supply is vital regardless of the application. Generators running at full load can consume large quantities of diesel fuel to keep the power on. In the event that longer run times are required, peak load power can benefit from the addition of a 110% bunded TransCube fuel tank to support the generators day tank. Plumbing an external fuel tank directly to a generator’s engine can increase the autonomy, meeting the most demanding power projects. In addition, a large capacity of reserve fuel is essential for generators in critical standby applications, such as hospitals or data centres.
