Buy or lease? How should users choose diesel generator sets?
June 06, 2022
Based on the heavy reliance on electricity, backup power equipment has also become one of the standard equipment for many enterprises. For example, many communication companies rely heavily on backup generators, because in the current electricity environment, the power supply cannot be guaranteed to be permanently stable. , Therefore, in order to avoid data loss in the event of a power outage, diesel generators constitute one of their main equipment.
In modern production and operation activities, diesel generator sets are an excellent temporary power source for the occasional power failure and power failure, but is it more appropriate to buy a diesel generator set or lease one? Many users expressed confusion, the following analysis of Dingbo Power for you.
Based on the heavy reliance on electricity, backup power equipment has also become one of the standard equipment for many enterprises. For example, many communication companies rely heavily on backup generators, because in the current electricity environment, the power supply cannot be guaranteed to be permanently stable. , Therefore, in order to avoid data loss in the event of a power outage, diesel generators constitute one of their main equipment. Another example is hospitals and other institutions. Diesel generators are indispensable. As a backup power supply for power outages, they can provide a stable and reliable power supply under any circumstances, so as not to cause the equipment to stop running due to power failures and endanger the lives of patients. .
So, what aspects should be considered when choosing diesel generator sets for medical institutions, military facilities, construction sites, mining sites, small and large industries, etc.?
First of all, if you are only considering the diesel generator set as a backup power source, then you should determine what the maximum power you need, because this is very important, if the diesel generator overload will seriously shorten the life of the set, however, in too light Running the generator under the same load will also have a serious impact on the diesel generator set. In addition, the power of the generator also directly affects the price of the generator. In order to ensure that you buy a generator that suits your needs, it is recommended that you communicate and analyze carefully with the technical engineer of Tingbo in order to obtain the most qualified unit.
In addition, the type of fuel used by the generator is also an important aspect to consider. In subsequent operations, the biggest expense is the consumption of fuel, diesel is the main fuel used in industrial generators because it is the least flammable fuel source and is readily available, and, more importantly, diesel type power generation Due to its design, generators have much lower maintenance costs than natural gas, gasoline, etc. types of generators.
Finally, the most important point is the safety of the generator. Due to the characteristics of diesel and the design principle of the unit, diesel generators are safer than generators such as natural gas and gasoline. At the same time, in order to meet the requirements of different uses and use environments in many industries, diesel generators have multiple series of different types of generators, such as silent diesel generators, container diesel generators, mobile trailer diesel generators, etc., which can meet the needs of different industries. , The individual needs of different enterprises.
As far as current technology is concerned, diesel generator sets are the most reliable backup or common power sources at affordable prices. Most industrial, commercial, and residential facilities use fuel-fired generator sets that can often run on diesel. Therefore, the use of diesel generator sets is most common in medical, military facilities, construction sites, mining sites, small and large industries, etc.
In addition to industrial applications, diesel generators are also used in entertainment, retail and other industry facilities such as stadiums, swimming pools, shopping malls and supermarkets.
So, does your business rent generators or buy new units outright?
For most companies, a generator set is a must-have, but this does not mean leasing or buying. If you only need to use a generator set for a short period of time, then the best way is to lease a generator. But for places that need to provide backup power needs for a long time, it is more cost-effective to buy diesel generator sets.
The advantage of leasing is that it is convenient. Whether it is maintenance or machine failure, the renter does not have to worry about any problems.
The disadvantage is that the relative price of leasing is relatively high, and the fuel consumption is relatively large during use. Usually, the business that rents out will lease the diesel generator with a larger size, because even if it works for a long time, the probability of the diesel generator being damaged is very small. .
If you plan to use it for a long time, it is recommended to buy one. Although there may be more investment in the early stage, the relatively low cost in the later stage
