For My Business / Generators
In construction and in distribution centres, access to an uninterrupted power source is critical to worker safety and the smooth operation of the job site. Propane generators, whether stationary or portable, are perfect for running electrical installations, tools, ventilation systems, electric heating, lighting, or any type of equipment requiring electrical power.
They offer many options for capacity and voltage, from 5 kW to 175 kW, and can be configured for three-phase 120-volt and 240-volt electrical systems.
Propane can also be used in hybrid mode as a backup fuel for existing diesel generators. In this case, propane can constitute up to 40% of the fuel used. This type of system provides a great deal of flexibility while allowing you to keep your existing generator. These propane-powered generators are ideal for work sites that are located outside of major energy infrastructure areas.
