HISTORY

This diesel power generating plant was built during cold war era to meet the needs of Missile Squadron of US Air Force. The plant was built and maintained to the highest military standards. The Squadron was relocated and power plant became decommissioned after being preserved for instant military use in the the event of state emergency. After the end of cold war the plant was sold to brokerage firm in 1998. The plant is ready to be disassembled and installed into a new location.

CONCLUSIONS:

A.
If the application is for CONTINUOUS POWER, the low speed engine is the most economical choice. The higher initial capital investment will be recovered in a relatively short period of time from lower operation and maintenance costs.

B.
If the application is STANDBY POWER, the lower initial price becomes the highest consideration along the expectation of minimal running time.
