We keep growing within the food retail sector through the delivery of bespoke equipment for a large UK supermarket chain

What would happen if a large area suffered a blackout? How long would the frozen section hold? What about meat and fish? One of the main nightmares of a supermarket or large food store is running out of supplies because a large part of their merchandise needs light as we need the air to breathe. For this reason, in this type of installation, emergency power is absolutely essential.

One of Genesal’s latest project within food retail sector has been developed in Great Britain, where we have supplied two generator sets.

These are customized generators whose function will be to provide backup power to one of the most important food distribution centers that a well-known supermarket chain has in the country.

In this case, the client needed a 100% customized solution to cover the energy needs of the distribution center, since the lack of supply would imply the shortage of supplies in the supermarkets in the area, which would imply big economic losses for the brand as well as the loss of its loss of reputation.

Thus, once the situation was analyzed and after a meeting with the client, our team of engineers designed two generator sets prepared to achieve specific noise levels, so special silencers were installed on both generator sets.

  • WHERE:

    UK

  • CUSTOMER’S NEED:

    The client required a customised solution to satisfy the energy needs of the distribution centre, as a lack of supply would mean that the supermarkets in the area would run out of stock.
