A Standby Power generator is vital in industrial applications or applications where safety or business regulations require backup power, such as manufacturing plants, hospitals, airports, hotels or data centers. For any of these institutions MTU Onsite Energy can provide Standby Power generator sets which provide back-up power in the event of power outage or in a crisis.
Standby Power with Overload generator sets exceed the specifications required by ISO 8528-1 (ESP) that limits the annual operation hours to 200 at a load factor of less or equal 70%. MTU Onsite Energy generator sets may run up to 500 hours with an average load factor of 85%. Compared to the Standby Power rating this application group provides an overload capacity of 10% for one hour in twelve.
