If your organisation and its essential operations are dependent on having a continuous power source, then an unexpected outage can potentially be a catastrophe. From the inconvenience and disruption of unplanned downtime, through to the potential financial and reputational losses associated with such an event, it makes sense to take the right steps to avoid such a scenario. By investing in an industrial generator, you can relax, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that should the worst happen, your business will be able to carry on operating.

Why Buy an Industrial Generator?
When you have an industrial generator on your premises, you can avoid the financial costs and disruption caused by a loss of power. By investing in a generator of your own, you can also eliminate the stress and time involved in sourcing and then setting up a hired generator (often a significant challenge if the power issue is not localised to your premises).
Investing In an Industrial Generator
Whether you ultimately choose to purchase or rent an industrial generator, you should also think carefully about where it is to be located. Safety should, of course, be a primary consideration, so be sure to set up your generator in a low traffic area away from public access. You can use cable ramps to reduce the risk of people tripping on any wiring that could traverse floor spaces, but it’s smarter to simply keep it away from any pathways. You should also ensure that the spot you choose is secure in order to protect against the threat of theft or malicious damage.
Think about where you will store the fuel needed to power your generator, too, as well as any spare UPS battery units you purchase. This should be in an area free from potentially damaging temperature fluctuations, damp, fumes, or dust.
Develop an Emergency Power Plan
This involves a careful assessment of your business’s power needs so that you have a clear idea as to exactly how much emergency energy your industrial generator will need to produce. Consider whether you would need all of your organisation’s premises to be powered during an outage, or only a selection of critical loads. It could well be that certain areas could manage without power for some time, thereby saving you money, but bear in mind, too, that power outages can run into a period of several days, depending on their cause (think flooding or fires, for example).
