Generator sets for airports,
We guarantee the energy supply in the event of any system failure with generator sets especially designed for the needs of any infrastructure. We ensure that transport facilities and systems never stop.
Where nothing can fail
Critical facilities are strategic infrastructures that provide essential services such as healthcare, security, or transportation, and whose operation is essential for society. Airports, hospitals, train stations, logistics centres, the electrical network, pumping stations, medical research centres, pharmaceutical companies are all examples of such essential infrastructure. However, we are not always fully aware of the vital importance of electricity to keep everything working in these facilities.
The absence of electricity in a hospital would prevent the proper functioning of the emergency department, and there would be a lack of key supplies for the assistance and care of patients. At an airport, take-offs and landings would become impossible as the safety of passengers would be put at risk. What would happen if the lighting failed on the motorway network? There would be chaos.
Guaranteeing power supply
In order to avoid situations of this type, electrical power supply must be protected in all critical infrastructure. The vital systems for our society must be able to function under any circumstance and condition. The electrical grid, whilst reliable, cannot guarantee supply in any situation, and this requires a redundant power source such as that provided by generator sets.
A generator set is a highly safe machine which, when equipped with the right characteristics, is capable of providing the necessary electrical power in even the most extreme situations. It can ensure that any infrastructure, such as a hospital or an airport, can maintain its power for long periods of time, guaranteeing safety at all times.
In the case of an airport that experiences a power failure, a generator set can ensure that planes will continue to be able to take off and land, or divert to other destinations while passengers can safely leave the airport. In the case of a hospital, a generator set will make it possible to care for the sick, finish operations, continue caring for patients in ICU, and continue to run life support machines without any harm to patients.
are always ready
In all critical situations, in all facilities and basic infrastructures, extremely resistant and reliable generator sets are required that are perfectly adapted to the energy requirements of the installation, both now and in the future. In order to guarantee its reliability one hundred percent, the generator set will require proper maintenance so that it can never fail. Therefore, the process does not end with the manufacture and delivery of the equipment. Control and supervision tasks are also key.
Keys to generator sets in critical facilities
Generator sets in critical facilities must be designed with great precision so that they can detect a fault in the electrical supply network and activate and connect quickly. A network failure cannot cause a problem for users, even for a very short period of time. To find the optimal solution in each case, these issues must be taken into account:
- To size an installation of this type, a detailed study must be carried out on site, analysing the loads and dividing them into the essential and non-essential.
- Another very important point is the size of the fuel tank. This must be large enough to respond in an optimal manner, and must be capable of charging while running to guarantee emergency supply.
- It is always preferable to install several machines which work together to provide the necessary power as if they were a single machine. This offers additional contingency, as if one of the units suffers a breaks down, the installation can continue to partially operate.
- It is essential to have at least N+1 generator sets available and to carry out a survey of the land system (using an IT land system to maximise generator set availability is highly advisable). The maintenance tasks are basic.
