Standby Power for Telecomm

Battling the Telecommunications War — Have a Guardian On Your Side: Generac Industrial Power



Competition in the telecommunications industry means your network must be the best and most reliable. Factor in more than 400,000 calls to 911* being made every year on wireless devices. This means no failures, even during major grid or weather-related outages.

People are counting on you and you count on Generac Industrial Power. 

Backup for Urban and Remote Cell Towers

Cell tower space is becoming crowded with so many other industries vying for the rented space. You need backup generators that can deliver the need kWs, while fitting into a smaller footprint. Generac Industrial Power provides rugged diesel and natural gas generators to provide the power needed. They work well with critical power components such as UPS systems, rectifiers, and HVAC systems that ensures power will be continuous as the generator starts and runs up to speed.

Cell tower locations vary: they are either in the middle of things or in the middle of nowhere. Generac manufactures sound-attenuated enclosures that reduce the noise level for city or urban cell tower locations. At the same time, we produce extreme weather resistant enclosures, should your tower be located on a mountain, near the ocean, or in the Midwest and subject to a variety of weather events.

Generac also provides a range of controllers for remote monitoring that shows all the vital operating parameters of the generator set.

Data Collection Centers Need More Power

Most providers use data collection centers to receive input from cells phones and other wireless devices and then re-transmit that data. These facilities require substantial backup or even prime power gensets to ensure the flow of information never stops. 

Our line of 750 kW – 2 MW industrial diesel generators combines the precise components, designed, manufactured, and supported by a single source—Generac Industrial Power. We control every part of the production and testing process—engines, alternators, control systems, enclosures, and base tanks. These components are all specifically designed and built to meet the highest reliability and performance standards.

Generac Takes the Stress Out of Medium Voltage Generator Systems

With the need for more power, we are finding more medium voltage applications with a medium voltage alternator and ANSI C37.20.2 gear, are becoming specified. At the same time, many staff members and contractors are hesitant to work with medium voltage systems. The solution—our integrated paralleling Modular Power System (MPS) concept.
By paralleling on the low voltage side and feeding one or multiple transformers, various system advantages can be realized:
  • facility staff are typically more comfortable interacting with low voltage generators
  • low voltage equipment is much easier and quicker to source
  • low voltage rental equipment can be used when needed
  • no medium voltage paralleling switchgear sections are required resulting in a smaller footprint and significant cost savings
And while diesel has been the traditional fuel choice, many telecommunications companies are now considering the use of natural gas or bi-fuel generators, upon approval of the AHJ, to meet the need for extended runtimes.

Two Natural Solutions

Natural gas generators offer many benefits. The have reduce emissions compared to diesel generators, the permitting requirements are easier and you are connected to the natural gas pipeline which is rarely impacted by weather or other crisis events. 



Bi-Fuel is another great option as you have the strong initial start from a diesel engine and then transition to primarily natural gas under load. Generac offers fully integrated solutions that are the only EPA-compliant generators straight from our factory in both the 500 kW and 600 kW nodes. These units can also be paralleled to create even larger kW requirements.
