COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Center Relies on Generac Industrial Power for Critical Backup Power

- Thursday, April 22, 2021
South Shore Generators - Covid-19 Distribution Centers Relies on Generac

“The COVID-19 vaccine is a matter of life and death and Generac Industrial Power is proud to be the trusted backup power provider for a critical vaccine distribution center.”

Many drug companies have developed vaccines that could help combat the pandemic that has touched lives across the globe. Some of the vaccines require special refrigeration, and reliable and redundant power is imperative. If the facilities that are storing these vaccines were to be without power, every vial of the vaccine stored there, would no longer be viable, meaning people all over the United States would not have access to the potentially life-saving vaccine. To ensure one facility would have power at all times, they enlisted the help of Generac Industrial Power.

“The facility needed to ensure power to the freezers would always be operational,” said Dan Barich, Vice President Global Operations, Generac Industrial Power. “They needed two 1 MW diesel generators to safeguard the system and they needed them quick.” Barich said the team expedited production to complete the project within two weeks. “Our team recognized the urgency and importance of this project and we were able to prioritize the order as all shifts at our Oshkosh manufacturing facility worked around-the-clock to get the units built, tested and out the door,” he said.

“Redundant power generation is simply more reliable than single engine generator solutions,” said Richard Lincoln, Senior Director Global Product Management, Generac Industrial Power. “With multiple generators on call, redundancy is built-in and reliability is increased because one generator backs up the other.”

Due to the high kW application, and the need for onsite fuel storage, it was imperative to utilize diesel-fueled generators. To provide the best possible diesel-fueled solutions, Generac specifies diesel engines proven in real-world applications under adverse conditions. They are designed for easy maintenance, extreme endurance and impurities in the fuel.

“The Oshkosh Team is incredibly proud to know the work we are doing is making such a profound impact on the fight against COVID-19. All our families have been impacted by the pandemic and this is a great opportunity to be part of a solution,” said Barich.

“When we come together as a team like this, we can see what we are truly capable of when working together toward a common goal.” The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt globally and the virus has left its mark on every citizen in one way or another. With some relying on this vaccine, it was imperative to work with a reliable partner.

“Generac has always taken pride in helping our communities during their darkest times,” said Wilde. “The year 2020 has thrown many challenges our way and it is difficult to understand the true impact this pandemic has had on every person. I am very proud of our team for designing, engineering and building the most reliable and durable product that is up to the task of making sure a useable vaccine can be delivered. This project highlights what we stand for as a company and that our products really do make the world safer.”

Prime Power Switchgear Systems for Power in Unreliable Environments

- Friday, April 16, 2021
Prime Power Switchgear Systems

Prime Power Switchgear Systems provide power and control for applications where local utility is unreliable, unavailable, or uneconomical to install. Prime power sites require unique control solutions because of their critical nature. These systems can incorporate automatic synchronizing, soft transfer, fuel economizing, or run time hour balancing. The systems can also be provided with modem communication for remote monitoring, control, and datalogging, as well as alarming.

Applications include:

  • Marine - on board power generation
  • Village or island applications - system acts as the utility
  • Mining, offshore platforms, gas plants, and remote refineries - providing on-site power for production.

In locations such as remote mining or gas plant operations, utility power is nonexistent. A multiple-unit, auto-synchronizing system will provide continuous reliable power for site operations and production systems. The system can control multiple units for auto sequencing, load sharing, auto-synchronizing, and protection. The controls can automatically start and stop generators as required, based on plant demand, thereby improving system downtime and facilitating maintenance.

Thomson Technology’s Marine Switchgear is designed to meet the additional requirements of the applicable marine standards such as Lloyds, DNV, or ABS. These standards deal with issues like extended temperature ranges, vibration, serviceability, and fireproofing.

Auto Standby Switchgear Systems Keep the Power on During Outages

- Monday, April 12, 2021
South Shore Generator - Automatic Switchgear System

Automatic Standby Switchgear Systems provide control of single or multiple generator sets to provide automatic standby power during a utility power failure. Auto standby switchgear can be designed with an integral transfer system between the utility supply and emergency bus. It can also work with an external distributed transfer switch scheme.

Many standard transfer control schemes are available. Manual synchronizing is provided in the event of failure of the automatic controls. Load demand starting can be incorporated to maintain optimal efficiency and reliability of your gen-sets during a power failure. Load management schemes can be provided to prevent your system from being overloaded, resulting in costly and dangerous downtime.
