The Generator Company - Completed Projects / Case Studies

Supplier - Installer - Hire Specialist - Service Provider - Petbow AP600 - Alternator Repairs

The Generator Company has established itself as a leading Supplier, Installer, Hire Specialist and Service Provider for industrial generators and related equipment throughout the world. Our success has been built upon delivering excellence in design, innovation, quality and commitment to our customers.

Our standard range of industrial generators is powered by both diesel and gas engines, ranging from 8 kWe to 3,000 kWe utilising a single engine. For larger power requirements, we utilise digital multi-set paralleling control systems from a range of manufacturers including Cummins, Deep Sea, DEIF, Megacon and ComAP that are integrated into our own Single Generator or Multi Paralleling Control Systems.

Our experience and expertise also extends to the design and manufacture of Control Systems and Switchgear for Power Generation related projects, meaning that we are able to offer a pioneering range of products for a wide variety of applications and environments.

Alternator Repairs at Power Station in Antigua Harbour

Alternator Repairs at Power Station in Antigua Harbour

Following a tropical storm, the generator power station was flooded with approximately 450mm of water. The site engineers shut down the generator power station and switched off the main supply, causing a complete power outage throughout the complex.

The Generator Company responded to the emergency call immediately and had alternator HV specialists on site stripping down the alternators to ascertain the extent of the damage.

Due to the restricted available resources, limited power was restored to the complex by getting the first of the three generators back up and running within 48 hours.

Largest Health Care Provider in South West London

3 x 1000kVA prime rated generator sets and associated plant delivered, installed and commissioned in one of the country’s principal NHS teaching hospitals. This is shared with St George’s, University of London which is a dual faculty institution offering medicine, biomedical sciences and health and social care sciences. Each set was supplied with an automatic lubricating oil make-up system located immediately adjacent to the generator sets that allowed the sump to be automatically topped up between services intervals as required.

Remote Base Load Power Stations

Remote Base Load Power Stations

Three separate remote based power stations all situated in areas with limited vehicular access. The generator sets had to provide the sole source of power on site. The Generator Company supplied 4 x 500kVA prime rated powered generator sets with a set mounted control panel and local protection circuit breaker.

The control panel was suitable for facilitating single set operation with parallel function and synchronising onto a common bus which worked in conjunction with the supplied Master Control Panel, the LV switchboard and building management system.

Leading UK Bank in the City of London

The Generator Company was asked to design, manufacture, install and commission a 550kVA standby generator to be installed at roof level on a 9 storey building to support two separate banks. This included the design and installation of a common basement fuel storage facility and fuel transfer system to roof level generator ‘day’ tanks.

A large 16,000 litre bulk storage facility was installed to supply both sets within an existing basement with limited access via a vehicle lift and narrow pedestrian corridors. Six individually bunded tanks were linked and a common fuel line installation was welded pipe-in-pipe and a spill return was created in the interstitial space between the pipes.

Unimpeded access also had to be provided to drainage inspection manholes in the tank room floor.
