Industrial Stand-by & Peak Shaving

Gas Generators

SustainPower, through its partnership with PRAMAC, has introduced rich-burn industrial standby gas generators to the African market. Made in the USA by world-leading generator manufacturer Generac, these robust machines combine the low running costs of a gas genset with the technical load-acceptance capability that is required for standby and prime applications.

This means that there is now an emergency standby solution that can double as a peak-shaver. In a peak-shaving application these standby gensets save money for the client proactively, above and beyond protection against power outages.

Peak Shaving

Peak shaving refers to the leveling out of electricity usage during peak tariff times by industrial and commercial clients qualified as big consumers. This phenomenon leads to a quick reduction of their power consumption for a short period of time through scaling down on production or activation of on-site power generation systems. Thanks to its range of GENERAC/PRAMAC rich-burn industrial standby gas generators, SustainPower makes it possible for industrial and commercial consumers to go through peak tarrif periods without having to temporarily scale down on production.

Prime & Stand-by Power

Prime power applies to users who do not purchase power from a utility or to those whose utility power is highly unreliable, and down for long periods at a time. At varying load, the number of genset operating hours is unlimited per year but should remain under the agreed operating conditions with the maintenance intervals as prescribed by the manufacturer. Stand-by power applies to users who have utility power available, and their primary application is to supply emergency power for a limited period during a power outage.

Industrial Spark-ignited Generator Sets

Generac/Pramac Spark-Ignited gas technology, with Rich-Burn combustion, allows for optimization of energy costs while guaranteeing the robustness and load acceptance required in industrial applications.
