sudhir-diesel-generator-installation

 

A generator is a machine that generates electricity by converting mechanical energy into electrical. It is important to know that a generator do not produce electricity. It converts the mechanical energy into electrical. The machines supply continuous power to industries and household. To enjoy the uninterrupted supply, proper maintenance is importance for a long run of the machine. Besides, doing proper servicing at a regular interval of time, there are lots of small things that should be kept on mind.  Power shortage is a common and can occur at an unexpected time causing lot of problems to business, offices and household needs. Many small details should be kept on mind before installing generators in your building, house and business.

Seeking Advice for Generators Needs ->

While considering for a generator installation there are few factors that a professional will say to you. These could be the size of your space, for how long there is an interruption of power and other points. The growing market of generators and wide range of options gives a chance to customer to choose according to their needs. Let take a brief look at these point and how imperative are these.

Building Space

Size matters, the bigger the size the huge will be power requirement.  For commercial usages the generators runs mostly on diesel and natural gas. Therefore, the size mattes because of the reservoir it can hold the fuel. Similarly, if your space area is limited you can go for a small machines. Sudhir Power deals in manufacturing  high quality diesel generators catering to diverse needs of markets. The possibilities are huge due to the growing market and wide range of option. Similarly, for your housing needs a single generator will serve the power requirement. So, one can imagine power needs heavily depends on the size of the building.

Appliance and Electrical Equipment’s

The individual should be clear about his/her usage of electricity and the number of electrical appliances consuming the electricity.  A professional will greatly help you in knowing the exact amount of power requirement.  Complete knowledge of your power requirement is essential and it can play a great role in longevity of your silent Genset. Consumption of electricity varies greatly

Power duration

For how long the power need of a particular business, building or household play a major role. Buying a Diesel genset that can supply power for 16 to 20 hour for a place such as hospital. Fuel reservoir is imperative; this will give you fair idea for how long the power will be supplied to your buildings. A industrial grade generator can provide electricity for a week to household.

Nature of Power

It depends on the type of business you are in, whether it require an uninterrupted or not.  Business like hospitals, data centers, laboratories and defense organizations all required continuous flow of electricity. Therefore, look out for diesel genset that can provide uninterrupted supply of electricity to the business.

In today’s world, generators play a great role in supplying continuous power supply to the business and household requirements.  Sudhir Power manufactures high quality of generators for industrial and household needs.

 

Right buying decision facilitated by reliable Generator  set manufacturer & suppliers

IMG_2691.jpg

Right buying decision facilitated by reliable Generator  set manufacturer & suppliers Interruption in electricity supply is a humdrum affair today. It is more common in many city in summers or winters when demand of electricity is high. No industrial unit is complete without power back-up facilitated mostly by Cummins power generators of high capacity. Today, residences, hospitals, institutes, factories, offices, trade buildings, and more premises use these engines for uninterrupted supply of electrical energy.

Before you buy such a system, it is important to know the details, specifications, benefits, and related paraphernalia that well meet the application purpose. Meeting a facility’s loads is not only facilitated by the KVA specification. There are various other features that need to be considered. Because every home or business is different so are the variances in the electrical devices and equipment used.

Quick check list:

Understand & analyse your power back-up needs, before deciding genset rating and specification

Evaluate the options of single large DG set v/s multiple small sets

Check technical & commercial benefits of system integration

Check the site conditions meet Genset’s requirements for optimal performance

shortlisted Genset brand has proven capability for supporting your Genset for next 15 year

Assess the likely maintenance costs or running cost

Check the service support availability for the Genset

Two types of these engines – portable and stand-by are used today. The latter variety is more widely used. While portable options are used temporarily used in areas where there is no electricity, stand-by alternatives are installed permanently outside a premise. Stand-by Sudhir gensets detect electricity outage automatically and accordingly get activated immediately. They are generally plugged to the main electrical line of a premise.

Selecting a Power Generating Set (Genset) is hardly a case of rough calculations. Every electrical system and place of operation has unique characteristics that depends upon frequency and duration of power outage and sequence of loading.

The Environmental Protection Agency regulators have enforced standards, making it mandatory for manufacturers to develop emission compliant engines to minimize air pollution. Engine emission data is incorporated in stand-by options; ensure that the engine you buy comply to appropriate emission standards. Consider manufacturing dates including tier levels. There are engines available in the market that are oversized but rated with lower tier levels; these are affordably priced. Buying these, you not only affect the environment but may be subjected to violation of code if inspected by the local authority. Look for DG set suppliers that deliver products with proper emission standards as per MOEF and other norms.

It is easily understood that fuel efficiency of a large Diesel Generator running at 40% load is always lower, as compared to a smaller Genset running at 80% load! Running a smaller Genset at such times saves you substantial fuel costs.

Your electrial back-up engine should be fuel efficient even at normal operating loads. It should deliver optimum performance without noise, meeting your long-term power needs without fail. Besides being incorporated with heavy duty features, its turbo-matching should be optimized. Durability and lowest life cycle costs should not be compromised. Choosing a reliable supplier can help you take the right buying decision.

 

How Diesel Generator Caters to Power Requirements Of Agricultural Sector

Whenever we hear a word generator the one thing that comes in our mind is the uninterrupted supply of power. These machines since their inception are known for continues supply of power to various industries and household needs. Today they are extensively used for good power supplements in hospitals, malls, construction, telecommunications, marine, hospitals, automobiles industries etc. Looking at the current fuel price the use of diesel generator has gained popularity due to its cost efficiency. How this play a major role in the Indian scenario.

sudhir-diesel-generator

India being an agricultural country requires a good supply of electricity for carrying out farming activities. But the country is not able to supply adequate power because of the insufficient and unorganized power sector. Most of the power is supplied to big cities. Long power cuts further deteriorate the situations and this directly impacts the productivity of agricultural output. Though in recent years many other sectors have contributed in the economy but still agriculture undoubted lead when it comes to contributing in the GDP. The industry is so vital that currently 70% of population is directly engaged in some other way. So you have seen how crucial agriculture sector is and it is therefore becomes imperative to supply an uninterrupted power supply.

Agriculture is a primary sector in India, with 70% of the population engaged in this sector. With our products we want to extend our mission of creating life changing experiences for buyers and sellers to farmers of our country. We to offer competitive business solutions to farmers and industry related customers, which will help lower operating cost and improve availability of products, while maintaining product quality with global market. this bringing forth the inclusive power of energy in the realm of agriculture as well.

The expansion into the agriculture sector will not only facilitate a novel experience for farmers of India as they peruse through variety of items.

Knowing the importance, still the government is not able to supply a sufficient amount of electricity to the rural areas where most of the agricultural activities takes place. So a solution is greatly required and government knowing the seriousness of the issue has taken several steps. The first step it has taken is that subsidizing the diesel price to farmers for carrying out agricultural activities. Further the farmers were also given subsidized diesel generators so that they did not have any problems in power. After taking all these major steps and providing fuel and generators at fairly subsidize price the agriculture is right on track.

Through generators facilities, proper supply of power now farmer can easily carry out all his work related to agriculture. If we take a quick view we will find that prior to the supplement of generator the agricultural output was less and production has doubled since the use of diesel generators.

There are many advantages of using a diesel generator. diesel generator prove less cost effective and generates more power at the same amount of fuel. The diesel generator when it comes to maintenance is easier. For longevity of these machines they should be thoroughly inspected and their performance will surely get doubled.

Why Go For Diesel Generators?

Gensets are a great way of meeting power requirements during blackout and disaster. These machines have proved a boon to the industries and modern world in supplying high requirement of power. Besides this, generators are heavily used in household for carrying out day to day activities when there is a major black out.

Apart from commercial use Diesel generators are also used for recreational facilities such as in stadium, college, schools, Hospitals, malls, superstores and etc. The best thing about these is that virtually genset can be used anywhere for power requirement.  That’s why one can find these generator heavily used in mining sites, construction sites, military camps and disaster hit areas for providing quick relief. So these machines are a reliable source of power requirements. Generator purchase is a one-time investment; that can save you thousands of bucks because of the hindrance in your work due to long power cuts.

Earlier there were generators that used to make irritating noise and working with them was frustrating. Due to their high noise concentration on work was impossible. To solve this problem advanced and superior technological feature silent generators have come up in the market. These silent gensets are placed outside the buildings, industries and offices supplying power requirements without any noise. These silent machines have flourished in the market making them popular for industrial and household use. Sudhir has the distinction of being the first diesel generator company in the country to comply with the latest CPCB II norms for air and noise pollution.

Switching on these gensets for power requirements saves precious time as one does not have to sit ideal and stop their production. Generator can supply uninterrupted power supply making sure that production do not get halt, which saves a huge amount of money. In current scenario people can find use of these machines heavily in industries and household. As we have discussed earlier that generator supply interrupted power, this is the main factor that silent generators are used in industries when dealing with power requirements.  In the last one decade their demand has increased manifold. Many DG set industries have come up in India in the last one decade. Foreign industry has opened up there branches in, launching new and highly advanced diesel generators.  But not far behind Indian industries are also giving them tough competition in the market. So for market and customer it is a good thing as they would have more option. The fierce competition in market would also lower the prices of the products.

Proper maintenance

Generators can last for long period if proper maintenance is done. It is not that complicated to keep a generator maintained for long period. Most of its parts require lubrication and oiling and it can last for longer period of time. One can go for proper check of the machine if required. But normally these do not need that much of attention and normally last for longer period of time.

A quick snapshot of the interview is given below:

Interview with Sr. Director Marketing, Sudhir Power Limited

With Make in India campaign, many overseas companies are now planning to strengthen their operations in India. Being an OEM of Cummins – USA, what are your plans to maintain your leadership position in power segment?

It is definitely a great step taken by Govt, of India to strengthen the Indian economy by providing space to all investors. With this campaign, all sectors such as real estate, telecom, FMCG, etc. have received a major boost, which has ultimately resulted in the increased demand of power equipment’s too. In the genset segment, I wouldn’t consider our partner – Cummins as a foreign company since they have been in India for over 50 years now. In this dynamic scenario, we are fully prepared to keep fulfilling the increased power demand. The preparedness is also being demonstrated by Cummins by setting up 4 mega plants in Phaltan, Maharashtra with an investment of around Rs. 500 Cr.

How do you see the power generation industry in India especially DG segment ?

Power generation growth is the yard stick determining the growth of any country. The Govt, of India’s focus to attain “Power for All” and the Planning Commission’s 12th Plan to invest 41 trillion in infrastructure will demand an accelerated power backup solutions. We have seen increased demand from all sectors and it’s likely to increase with the expected economic thrust on “Make in India”. I believe, these changes will boost the demand of DG sets and it’s to be an important source of power for the industry.

What is your current capacity (in terms of power generation) and where do you see yourself in next 3-5 years ? 

Currently, We are making 7.5 – 3750 kVA silent Gensets with the fuel option of Diesel and Gas. We have a high growth plan for the future which would encompass core as well as non-core sectors. Today, with turnover of around Rs. 2000 Crs, we are growing consistently at a steady pace of 20% year after year Going forward, we would like to multiply our top line & bottom line many fold by adding more products & services to our manufacturing portfolio. We are looking to grow our core business with our existing partners & are also likely to forge a new partnerships in the near future.

Has de-regulation of diesel price impacted your business in some sense ?

Since the past few years, the application of Generators has witnessed a sea change – earlier it used to be base load where Gensets were the only source of power, today the application is more towards the stand by. Earlier the main market was Industry, today it is more wider with more segments such as Retail, telecom, infrastructure etc. thus, increasing the DG demand. Today, power is more of a necessity then a luxury. Hence, the sale of Gensets is quite independent of Diesel Price.

How do you see government’s agenda of “Power to all”? How are you anticipating the future of Indian power market ? 

This is a very good initiative from the Govt, of India where in there will be a huge scope for generation, transmission and distribution equipment companies. Although, demand is rising, but environmental concerns are changing the way energy is generated and distributed. As a result, to better incorporate the intermittent power supply from renewable energy supplies, we are also moving ahead in our product technology and have started manufacturing solar products such as solar transformers etc. Actually, this push from Govt, of India has opened a plethora of opportunities for power companies like us who themselves are working from decades to put a sufficient and reliable power infrastructure in place.
