Emergency power generator

Power outages can have catastrophic consequences. Whether it’s servers going offline at a data center, electrical equipment stopping working at a hospital resulting in life-threatening situations or a food manufacturer whose production comes to a halt, a reliable power supply is indispensable and vital. With an emergency power generator, you significantly reduce the risk of power outages. ABATO Motors manufactures, supplies and services emergency power generators. An emergency generator is a reliable partner because it automatically turns on the moment the power goes out. ABATO Motors has therefore developed a number of unique features that allow the generators to start up and turn on when the time comes:

  • Standard monthly automatic startup and running of aggregates for a specified time. If the genset then does not function properly, we can resolve any malfunction in a timely manner.
  • It is also possible to build a so-called whisper generator/low-noise generator. These generators are extra quiet due to a soundproof enclosure and ensure that your generator does not cause noise pollution.

Differences in emergency power generators

ABATO Motors supplies gensets with different power ratings. In addition, we also assemble the generators with different motors and generators. For example, for an engine you can choose the Weichai or Moteurs Baudouin brand, and for a generator you can choose the Linz or Xing Nuo brand, for example. Depending on your needs, we can advise you on the best setup. In addition, you can also generate your own price estimate by using our handy calculator.

How does an emergency generator work?

An emergency power generator is a generator used in an environment where there is no main power source or in an environment where power failure cannot be afforded. Fossil fuels are converted into electrical energy by internal combustion engines. Also read our extensive article on how an emergency generator works.

Cost of emergency power generators

The cost of an emergency power generator ranges from €6,500 to €370,000, depending on several factors including power. In fact, greater power means a larger engine and generator. There are also several options that allow you to equip the generator based on your needs. ABATO Motors supplies generators with capacities from 18kVA to 2500kVA and possibly even higher on request. The cost of an 18kVA genset is around €6,500 and a 2,500kVA genset costs about €370,000. For a clearer cost indication, we recommend using our price calculator   use. Maintenance prices also depend on the power of the genset. Also for maintenance you can consult our maintenance calculator consult for a price indication.

Standard range emergency power generator: best price/quality ratio

An emergency generator does not have to be expensive. ABATO Motors builds the gensets of the standard range with Weichai Power diesel engines. The advantages of the standard range with Weichai:

  • Solid and simple: An emergency generator does not need to run continuously but obviously only in an emergency, so a good, high-quality but simple model will suffice.
  • Placement, installation, commissioning and operation is easy: Through cooperation with electrical installers and extensive customer experience with emergency power supplies, the generators are perfectly matched.

Emergency generator brands

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a SCIOS inspection entail?
To ensure that a combustion plant, which includes emergency generators, operates as economically and as safely as possible, the government has established requirements that combustion plants must meet. This quality standard is known as SCIOS. The government does not perform these inspections itself, instead SCIOS-certified companies do. ABATO Motors is SCIOS-certified and can perform these inspections. A SCIOS inspection involves checking the generator to see if it meets the applicable standards and that the installation is still working properly. More information about SCIOS inspections can be found

What does aggregate maintenance involve?
Genset maintenance is quite a broad term and includes checking the oil and diesel, performing a maintenance service and load testing the genset. For more information on the individual types of services ABATO Motors offers regarding emergency power units, please visit our
maintenance calculator
where clicking on the question mark icons will give you more information about each service.

Does the generator automatically turn on when the power goes out?
A genset, when operating properly, will automatically detect when there is no more voltage across the grid and then automatically turn on. This way, equipment does not run out of power and business continuity is ensured.

What happens when there is a failure of the generator?
When there is a malfunction on the genset, in the case of an ABATO genset, a lamp comes on indicating that there is a malfunction. If you have a service level agreement with us, we can be on site within 4 hours to fix the fault. ABATO Motors is available 24/7 for troubleshooting.
