Providing Clean Water through Water and Wastewater Treatment Facilities

South Shore Generators - Back Up Power for Data Centers

The demand for safe water is growing rapidly. And as water consumption doubles globally every 20 years, municipalities are more focused than ever on using this resource wisely and efficiently.

Computers control water-processing and delivery systems, and sophisticated digital water meters and data analysis can improve operations and reduce costs. Yet those innovations and increasing regulations have put even more pressure on facilities to have reliable backup power systems.

Both water and wastewater facilities place great demands on pumping equipment for consistent water distribution and treatment processes. When pumps go offline due to power outages, these processes are halted and water distribution ceases. In the case of large municipalities, returning all plant systems to normal operations and resuming the distribution of water can be a daunting task. During prolonged outages, under-treatment may occur, and the penalties both in terms of financial and environmental damage can be severe.

Backup Power for Light Rail Crossings

Many communities are turning to light rail systems to provide more efficient ways for citizens to access downtown areas while at the same time helping to reduce emissions and parking challenges. Since light rail trains typically cross many busy intersections, during an outage, it’s vital crossing signals continue to function to help prevent dangerous accidents.

For light rail crossings, natural gas generators are becoming the preferred choice. Most light rail systems are located along the natural gas right of way making it easy to tie into the service lines. Generac offers gaseous generators from 22 kW up to 500 kW nodes, providing the power needed for most applications with limited service and maintenance requirements. In addition, these units can be paralleled to provide more kWs, as needed.

Generac's technological advances in natural gas generators have earned us awards from Frost and Sullivan as “The Natural Gas Generator Company of the Year”. In addition, the 500 kW natural gas generator recently earned a Silver Award from the readers of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine.

Industrial Generators Help Municipalities Serve and Protect Communities

Municipalities are continually asked to do more with less whether its maintaining municipal buildings, providing a vast array of community services, or providing protection for citizens during emergencies. There is no one “cookie-cutter” generator solution that will meet the incredibly diverse needs of municipalities. The good news is that Generac Industrial Power provides a wide range of gensets, accessories, controllers, and enclosures, so we can help you find the optimum solution to surpass your challenges.

Your Need: Emergency Preparedness

With major hurricanes and massive flooding that can occur at any time, the role of emergency preparedness is very great. Citizens not only depend upon crisis services including first responders and 911 call centers, but they also look to municipal facilities for shelter during the storm. Authorities may also need municipal buildings to act as command centers in the wake of a disaster.

If that were not enough, FEMA and other governmental agencies are asking cities and towns to deliver more robust support systems to community members living in underserved areas and government-sponsored housing unit.

Standy Power for Emergency Services

Police and fire stations, and 911 call centers must function during emergencies. Generac provides diesel gensets from 50 kW up to 2 MW to meet NEC and NFPA requirements for on-site fuel. And many of these gensets can be paralleled to meet even greater power requirements. Generac’s Modular Power Systems (MPS) feature on-generator paralleling so our units do not require dedicated and expensive third-party switchgear.

Future expansion generators simply tie directly to the generator bus. Because the paralleling is already built into the generator, the Generac MPS system inherently has greater flexibility for growth, requires less electrical room space, and reduces initial capital cost, which can help with your always tight budgets.

Paralleling also works for many government housing units as rooftop installations are being specified so flooding doesn’t impact power supply. MPS gensets are smaller and lighter weight which helps balance the rooftop load, while still providing the needed kWs.
