AJ Power recently supplied diesel generators to a major telecommunication company in South America.

We supplied generators ranging from 16.6kVA to 330 kVA. The tender was secured with our partner in Bolivia, Agencias Generales SA (AGSA).

AGSA is one the most established and recognised brands in Bolivia, and our relationship with them has been strengthened over the last number of years due to the quality of our products, flexible delivery times and customer service. Some of the challenges we face in the Bolivian market are that the generators need to perform at altitudes of 4000 metres above sea level.

This results in a drop in air pressure, and can create problems for the generator starting up. Another challenge is the availability of ambient air to facilitate heat dissipation from the generator, which results in a lot of heat being created during the combustion process and this needs to be dissipated into the environment to reduce engine temperature. At high altitudes, due to the low air density, heat dissipation occurs at a much slower rate than it would at sea levels, resulting in high engine temperatures for a sustained period of time.

The engine remains hot and overheating is a common problem in such cases. These are elements which AJ Power machines can cope with and made our gensets the first choice for these extreme conditions.
