Upgrading backups for high value product

A leading wine warehouse and transportation service provider needed to maintain its customers’ highly valuable inventories in a climate-controlled environment, 24/7.  As a result, the decision was made to upgrade its existing backup power generator from a portable unit to a permanent installation.

Flexible, fast-track project teams

The operation was located near sensitive wetlands, and needed to comply with local noise restrictions, necessitating the use of a high-quality, fully sound attenuated enclosure.  Centrica Business Solutions recommended Rudox Power Generation, a proven-reliable standby generator with top-quality components and excellent sound attenuation.  Due to the urgency to deliver the climate control project, Centrica Business Solutions ensured delivery, setup and full commissioning of the generator within a six-month window.

The results

Today, the wine warehouse and its client base have the protection they need, and all within the confines of a highly certified, quiet operation.  Centrica Business Solutions delivered a 400 kW, three-phase generator set to include a long-life and heavy-duty, world-class engine, ensuring maximum reliability and durability during operations. The generator set is housed within an enclosure featuring layers of durable, oil and fire-resistant Rockwool sound insulating material. Moreover, the top air discharge and silencers added onto the device reduce the overall noise significantly.  In addition to the peace of mind of having a sound attenuated, backup emergency generator, the client received an insurance premium deduction due to lowering the risk of loss of product.
