What is generator maintenance?

Diesel generator sets whether for purposes of a main or emergency supply, must be regularly maintained to ensure quality and longevity. Every standby generator should go through a preventative maintenance service regimen either every 400 hours or every 6 months (typically works out to be once a year) – depending on how regularly the generator is used. 

The benefits of a generator maintenance service are:

  • Extends longevity
  • Prevent failures down the road e.g. discharged battery
  • Helps maintain efficiency
  • Provides emergency power for many years
  • Prevents diesel from wet stacking
  • Checks for signs of wear
  • Drain and replace fuel
  • Inspect and replace oil filter

Maintenance works can be carried out either on site or at one of Power Electrics’ fully equipped service workshops. We are also happy to relocate your generator to anywhere in the UK where all relocation's are undertaken by trained personnel. Relocation services include but are not limited to:

  • Decommissioning
