Power Generation

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.

In these situations, generators supply auxiliary electric power during outages of power supply from the local electricity companies. This is done by using input mechanical energy to initiate combustion of fuel and converting this energy released to electrical energy. In this situation, if no fuel is available to the generator during power outages then the purpose of the generator is lost. Hence it is essential to store fuel so that such an event does not arise.


Standby generators powered by TransCubes

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.
