Emergency power generator

Power outages can have catastrophic consequences. Whether it concerns servers that go offline at a data center, electrical equipment that stops working in a hospital with life-threatening situations as a result or a food producer whose production comes to a standstill: a reliable power supply is indispensable and vital. With an emergency power generator, you significantly reduce the risk of power failure. ABATO Motoren produces, supplies and maintains emergency power generators. An emergency power generator is a reliable partner because it switches on automatically when the power goes out. ABATO Motoren has therefore developed a number of unique features that allow the generators to start up and switch on when the time comes:

  • By default, monthly automatic start-up and running of the generators for a certain time. If the generator does not function properly, we can resolve any malfunction in time.
  • It is also possible to build a so-called whisper generator/low-noise generator. These generators are extra quiet due to a sound-absorbing housing and ensure that your generator does not cause any noise nuisance.

Differences in emergency power generators

ABATO Motoren supplies aggregates with different capacities. In addition, we also assemble the aggregates with different engines and generators. For example, for a motorcycle you can choose the brand weichai of Motors Baudouin and for a generator, for example, you can choose the brand Linz of Xing Nuo. Depending on your wishes, we can advise you on the best setup. In addition, you can also generate a price indication yourself by using our handy calculator.

How does an emergency power generator work?

An emergency power generator is a generator that is used in an environment where there is no main power source or in an environment where the power outage cannot be tolerated. Fossil fuels are converted into electrical energy by combustion engines. Also read our extensive article about the operation of an emergency power generator.

Cost of emergency power generators

The costs for an emergency power generator are between €6.500 and €370.000, depending on several factors, including the capacity. More power means a larger engine and generator. In addition, there are various options with which you can equip the generator according to your needs. ABATO Motoren supplies generators with capacities from 18kVA to 2500kVA and possibly even higher on request. The costs of an 18kVA generator are around €6.500 and a 2500kVA generator costs around €370.000. For a clearer cost indication, we recommend that you consult our price calculator to use. The prices of maintenance also depend on the power of the generator. You can also contact our for maintenance 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 Motoren builds the aggregates of the standard range with Baudouin Power diesel engines. The advantages of the standard range with Baudouin:

  • Solid and simple: An emergency power generator does not have to run continuously, but of course only in case of emergency, which means that a good, high-quality but simple model is sufficient.
  • Positioning, installation, commissioning and operation is simple: The units are perfectly coordinated thanks to cooperation with electrical installers and extensive customer experience with emergency power supplies.

Emergency power generator brands

In addition to aggregates with Baudouin diesel engines ABATO Motoren also supplies emergency power sets of all well-known brands such as LINZ, but also Stage IIIA aggregates.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a SCIOS inspection entail?
To ensure that a combustion installation, which includes emergency power generators, works as economically and safely as possible, the government has drawn up requirements that combustion installations must meet. This quality standard is known as SCIOS. The government does not carry out these inspections itself, instead SCIOS-certified companies do this. ABATO Motoren is SCIOS certified and can carry out these inspections. A SCIOS inspection involves checking the generating set to see if it meets the applicable standards and that the installation is still working properly. More information about SCIOS inspections can be found here.

What does maintenance on a generator mean?
Maintenance on a generator is a fairly broad concept and includes checking the oil and diesel, performing maintenance and load testing of the generator. For more information about the individual types of services that ABATO Motors offers regarding emergency power generators, please contact our maintenance calculator where you can get more information about each service by clicking on the question mark icons.

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

What happens if there is a fault with the generator?
In the event of a fault on the generator, in the case of an ABATO generator, a lamp lights up to indicate that there is a fault. If you have a service level agreement with us, we can be on location within 4 hours to resolve the malfunction. ABATO Motoren is available 24/7 to resolve malfunctions.
