POWER GENERATOR FOR AN AIRPORT MOBILE TOWER – KENYA
Genesal Energy has supplied 2 gensets of 20 kVA prime power to supply electricity to a mobile control tower, mounted on a semi-trailer truck with an elevation system of up to 9.5 M above ground level, allowing the controller to have clear visibility. The control tower also comes fully fitted with telecoms systems and can function as a fully operational control tower.
The gensets designed in our manufacturing plan will be used to supply power to this somewhat unusual type of control tower, guaranteeing it has power in the event of a mains grid failure. The gensets have also been prepared and set up to control other aspects of the mobile control tower such as the hydraulic mechanisms of the vehicle that supports the tower.
The principle characteristics of the project design called for redundant diesel generators, both for emergency power; the energy supplied comes from one of the two gensets, with the second genset remaining as back up. Should there be a further power cut associated to the 1st genset, the second genset will then start-up, this also applies if the 1st genset is undergoing maintenance.
